Earth & Star Launches Organic Ground Coffee, Dark Chocolates, and Tinctures

Earth & Star Launches Organic Ground Coffee, Dark Chocolates, and Tinctures

If you’ve been paying attention to the food and supplement space, you’re very aware of the mushroom wellness wave. A number of companies have sprouted up offering their own spin on wellness foods and supplements using fungi. One brand, however, has an interesting approach to the market, offering all the amazing benefits, but without impeding upon your routine. Earth & Star, the functional mushroom brand bringing powerful immune-supporting benefits by way of ready-to-drink lattes, has expanded their product portfolio and launched Organic Ground Coffee, Dark Chocolates and Tinctures

The launches mark exciting growth for the brand, and Earth & Star founders and wellness industry veterans Zoë Sakoutis & Erica Huss – who are the former co-founders behind the wildly successful BluePrint Cleanse of the mid-2000s – believe that fungi is the future. As the power duo owned the juice cleanse space, they are now taking over the functional mushroom category and rather than expecting consumers to add yet another product to their wellness repertoire, Zoë and Erica’s line of RTD lattes, Ground Coffee, Dark Chocolates, and Tinctures serve as a seamless integration to supercharge our daily routines, making wellness easier and accessible for all.

As founders at the forefront of the mushroom movement upon us, the pair offer incredible insight into the mushroom movement, and benefits of their products:

  • BluePrint Product Pioneers + Fungi Forerunners – As creators of the multi-billion dollar cold pressed juice industry through BluePrint Cleanse, pivoting to the crowded adaptogen and functional foods category wasn’t the most expected step for Zoë and Erica. Explore why they’re leaning into the true, enriching roots of wellness and how Earth & Star is developing the magical world of mushrooms differently (100% fruiting bodies vs typical mycelial-based products on the market).

  • Adaptogens For XY & Z – In the midst of the pandemic and political + social turmoil, consumers have sought out ways to boost immunity, ward off viruses, ease anxiety and discover simple, yet effective, ways to be well. As such, the ‘magic mushroom’ market within the wellness industry has skyrocketed, offering an adaptogenic product for just about every need. Products made with functional ‘magic mushrooms’ offer everything from focus & clarity to immunity, muscle recovery, and balancing hormones.

  • 4th of Wave of Fungi – Adaptogenic mushrooms have been used for centuries, but there is still a lack of education and stigma surrounding some mushrooms. The 4th Wave of Fungi will take the combined power of industry leaders in the health & wellness industries to show how mushrooms can deliver on the promise to create homeostasis in the body — from relieving depression and reducing physical stress to providing glowing skin, and more.

The line-up of new and existing products feature the brand’s signature synergistic blend of mushrooms that provide lasting therapeutic doses of calm, focused energy, immune support and more. Never sacrificing on quality or taste, the adaptogenic infused products tastes just like your favorite brew, matcha latte or chocolate, and are plant-based, organic, and without refined sugar, preservatives.

Cloud11 Launches for an Elevated Edible Experience

Cloud11 Launches for an Elevated Edible Experience

There are edibles, and now there are luxurious edibles. DTC brand Cloud11 made its debut on September 8th, merging culinary artistry with cannabis craftsmanship. Cloud11 offers a new wave to shake up the industry with artfully infused cannabis confections, all painstakingly hand-crafted in LA and deliberately low-dose to help individuals enjoy the multi-sensory tasting experience without the worry of overindulgence. 

Born out of a desire to offer more than just a traditional cannabis edible, Cloud11 is co-founded by Chef, Sommelier, and Entrepreneur Nicholas Pritzker, and Eleven Madison Park alum, Chef Manuela Sanin. The duo set out to create a newfound edible experience that marries creative passion, culinary excellence, and sophistication. Cloud11 kicked off their launch with an exclusive yacht party aboard the Ramble on Rose.

Cloud11’s three debut flavors include:

  • Salted Peanut: As an elevated take on the classic, beloved peanut butter cup, Cloud11’s Salted Peanut is a silken, creamy peanut butter ganache encased in delicate, decadent dark chocolate finished with small-batch hand-crafted sea salt from Amagansett Sea Salt Co. Wonderfully smooth, each bite brings subtle waves of sweetness balanced perfectly with a wash of slight saltiness.

  • Strawberry Pink Peppercorn: Featuring strawberries from L.A. institution Harry’s Berries, Strawberry Pink Peppercorn is creamy and complex with a floral pink peppercorn twist to create bright and bitter bursts of flavor. Fresh and alluring, this one of a kind can’t help but melt in the mouth. 

  • Black Sesame Yuzu: With Wadaman sesame paste sourced from Japan, Black Sesame Yuzu is sensual and sophisticated. The toasted nuttiness of sesame unfurls alongside the fresh sharpness of yuzu. Earthy tones sit sumptuously alongside brilliant, bright citrus before fading away into a subtle smokiness.

Cloud11 is available via white glove delivery exclusively in Los Angeles at www.findcloud11.com. Each flavor is available in 11-piece tins with two dosage options: 2mg THC/2mg CBD or 4mg THC/4mg CBD. Single tins feature one flavor in one dosage and retails for $90, while double tins can combine two flavors and dosages, and retails for $170.
