TSUMo Snacks announced today that it raised a $4M Seed round led by Casa Verde. The new cannabis brand aims to elevate the way people consume THC through its innovative salty & savory snack offerings.
“This capital will be used to supercharge TSUMo’s product roadmap as the brand continues to fill a need for differentiated infused products in a space dominated by sweet-centric offerings,” says Yoni Meyer, a Partner at Casa Verde.
While most cannabis-infused edibles tend to be sweet in nature, savory options are growing in popularity. Chocolate tends to be the predominant flavor option, while gummies are often a popular form factor. That was mostly because these edibles had binding ingredients that made it easier to incorporate cannabis into the recipe. Now, technology has made it easier to create savory options for consumers who prefer something without so much sugar.
TSUMo brings consumers a unique and elevated snacking experience by infusing cannabis into familiar flavors and form factors. Low dosed at 10mg of THC per bag, the debut line of snacks features five delicious flavors:
Classic Cheese Puffs: the go-to snack to satisfy any cheese craving
Fiery Hot Cheese Crunchers: to spice up your snacking
Zesty Ranch Mini Tortilla Rounds: the chip that boldly goes where no ranch has gone before
Hint of Lime Mini Tortilla Rounds: chips that pack a punch of lime zest and citrus
Salsa Verde Mini Tortilla Rounds: the perfect amount of spice and south-of-the-border zing
Since the brand’s official launch in September 2021, TSUMo’s success demanded the need to expand its retail footprint and accessibility. Initially only available in select dispensaries in Los Angeles, TSUMo is now available for purchase at dispensaries across the state of California.
“This funding provides TSUMo with the opportunity to make considerable headway in bringing a wide range of unique snacks to market,” comments CEO and Co-Founder Caroline Yeh. “With this new capital, we will develop new flavor profiles and form factors, further elevating and expanding the way people consume cannabis.”
