The DB3 Vision: Committed to Doing it Right!
When voters in Washington State issued their directive to legalize cannabis and its
related byproducts, they not only set the pace for the rest of the nation, they also
inspired three brothers born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. The brothers, with
a passion for food products excellence, had a vision of quality, consistency and
controlled consumption in cannabis edibles, and they founded Db3 to deliver on that
vision. Working with industry experts, the brothers developed the Cypress Extraction
Method™, a proprietary plant essence extraction process that results in cannabis oil
rich in natural compounds of THC, cannabinoids and terpenes. In their state-of- the-
art processing facility, and employing strict food safety standards, they blend this
special oil with other all-natural ingredients to create tasteful food and beverage
products that enable the consumer to control their own experience. Db3 is
committed to offering products that can be trusted to deliver a safe, consistent and
enjoyable experience – and to marketing those products in a socially responsible manner. The founding Devlin brothers invite all those in Washington State over the
age 21 to enjoy Db3 products, which are now available from licensed retailers
throughout Washington State under the ZOOTS brand.
At Zoots, they like to focus on the little things. Like handcrafted small batch treats
made with premium infused cannabis paired with unique blends tailored to your
interests, desires and intentions.
DB3 wants you to know that eating marijuana is different than smoking and
everyone has their own serving size.
Washington State regulatory officials have determined that 10mg THC is a standard
serving size for edible marijuana. But keep in mind that everyone’s experience is
different. Body size and type, physical activity, diet and much more can all play
factors in how THC affects you. While 10mg THC is just right for some, it will be too
much or not enough for others. That's why Zoots come in a variety of serving
sizes—so you are always in control of your experience.
There is much pleasure to be had in a serving of Zoots. So here’s the thing about
eating marijuana. It takes longer to feel the effects and the high lasts longer.
Depending on your size of serving, you may begin feeling the initial effects in as little
as 30 minutes, and it could take two or more hours for the full effect to kick in. This
point is worth repeating. If you're new to marijuana edibles, start low and slow. For some, it may last several hours. The key to enjoying edible marijuana is patience.
Allow yourself time to experience each serving of Zoots fully before consuming
more. They invite you to imbibe and nibble responsibly.
Do we have anyone here today from DB3?
Let’s give DBE a warm Alliance thank you!
