PORTLAND, Oregon — Wana Brands, North America’s No. 1 edibles company, is expanding its partnership with [WHT LBL] (“White Label”), a multi-state cannabis cultivator, extractor and manufacturer to launch Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies in Oregon. The expansion will bring one of the most popular new edible formulations to Oregon consumers, delivering an effect similar to inhalation in a rapidly reduced onset and offset time.
“Some consumers prefer the effects that inhalation can provide but they are not comfortable with smoking due to health concerns,” said Nancy Whiteman, CEO of Wana Brands. “Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies gives them the option to enjoy an inhalation-like experience in a discreet, convenient and delicious form. 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.”
The innovative new gummie provides a novel edible experience, with an onset of 5-15 mins and Delta-9-THC effects (similar to an inhalation effect rather than an edible effect) lasting for about three hours for most consumers. 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 10 gummies per package.
“Today’s consumers want options, and Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies provides an amazing inhaled cannabis experience in the convenience of an edible,” said Chelsey Joseph, CEO of [WHT LBL]. “Oregonians who have wished for a faster-acting gummie will be blown away by the effect and fast onset of these edibles, as well as the variety of flavors.”
Fast, effective and innovative, 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 mins for most, and a Delta-9-THC experience that lasts two to four hours.
The encapsulation technology is paired with new Happy Hour-inspired flavors from Wana including:
- 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, 50mg THC per package (10 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, 50mg THC per package (10 pieces).
- 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, 50mg CBD / 50mg THC per package (10 pieces).
