Boulder, Colo. (March 9, 2020) — PRESS RELEASE — Wana Brands has launched Quick Fast-Acting Gummies featuring new Happy Hour flavors, which have an onset of 5-15 minutes and Delta-9-THC effects (similar to an inhalation effect rather than an edible effect), which last up to three hours. Traditional edibles have an onset time of up to two hours, with effects lasting up to six hours. The new Wana product line features an all-natural recipe, with no high fructose corn syrup. Each gummie offers 5mg of THC, with 20 gummies per package.
“At Wana, we saw a need for a product that could deliver a less intense inhalation-like experience in an edible form quickly and predictably,” said Wana CEO Nancy Whiteman. “Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies more closely mirror the onset and offset time of a typical inhalable cannabis product or an alcoholic beverage, making them a unique alternative to the traditional edible experience.”
Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies harness TiME (Thermodynamic Individual Molecular Encapsulation), a new quick onset technology from Azuca. While traditional edibles convert Delta-9-THC in the digestive tract to 11-Hydroxy-THC, Wana Quick gummies feature individually encapsulated Delta-9-THC cannabinoids with greater bioavailability that work at the molecular level to bypass the liver and enter the bloodstream immediately. This means onset in less than 15 minutess for most, and a Delta-9-THC experience that lasts two to four hours.
The encapsulation technology is paired with new flavors from Wana including:
- CBD/THC 1:1 Strawberry Margarita: Fast-acting technology is paired with sweet and citrusy flavors of a strawberry margarita with a hint of salt. Infused with CBD and THC terpene-enhanced distillate, this popular 1:1 ratio offers psychoactive effects while promoting relaxation and tranquility. 5mg CBD / 5mg THC per piece, 100mg CBD / 100mg THC per package (20 pieces).
- Sativa Peach Bellini: Fast-acting technology is paired with the juicy peach flavor of a sparkling peach bellini. Infused with sativa terpene-enhanced distillate, which has been known to cause a more uplifting and motivating effect. 5mg THC per piece, 100mg THC per package (20 pieces).
- Indica Piña Colada: Fast-acting technology is paired with the rich and creamy pineapple and coconut flavors of a piña colada. Infused with indica terpene-enhanced distillate, which often results in a mellow, stress-relieving effect. 5mg THC per piece, 100mg THC per package (20 pieces).
Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies are now available in Colorado dispensaries and will roll out to other states where Wana Brands is available in the coming year. Wana became the No. 1 brand of edibles (BDS Analytics Brand Share Report 2019) in the United States, with more dollars sold than any other brand, by leading the industry in innovation. It has expanded its product portfolio with a range of different CBD/THC ratios as well as a variety of different dosages, onset times and duration of effects. The portfolio is designed so that products can be used singly or in combination to address specific health, wellness and recreational needs.
Another reason for the popularity of Wana’s gummies: great flavor. From the beginning, Wana has focused as much on taste as on all the other qualities of its products. More than 30 different types of pectin were tested to determine the best possible consistency and scalability. Fruit pectin makes Wana Sour Gummies one of the only available vegan products on the market. During the cooking process, the gummies are infused with a high-quality tincture, not sprayed. All Wana products are made with gluten-free ingredients and taste like real fruit, thanks to all-natural flavoring, coloring and sugar. Wana gummies contain no mineral oil or artificial sweeteners, which can cause stomach upset. Wana has prioritized safety and product standards. Products are manufactured in line with cGMP and HACCP practices and are tested for potency.
