Wana Brands partners with Culinary Edibles Creator Azuca to continue expansion of Wana Quick product line

—The partnership enables Wana to continue to meet the evolving demands of edibles consumers—

Boulder, Colo. (October 24, 2019)—Expanding its line of innovative cannabis infused offerings, Wana Brands has struck a partnership with Azuca, a top developer of all-natural fast-acting cannabis edibles, to expand the Wana Quick product line, designed for maximum bioavailability and rapid onset.

“Azuca is the perfect partner to help us expand our portfolio to meet all the various needs of edibles consumers, many of whom are demanding more predictability and faster effectiveness,” said Nancy Whiteman, CEO of Wana Brands, the nation’s No. 1 maker of cannabis edibles.

Azuca’s patent-pending TiME™️ Infusion process enrobes individual CBD or THC molecules to make them hydrophilic, or water-friendly, and thus allowing for faster uptake, beginning immediately in the mouth and avoiding the gut and liver where cannabinoids such as THC are degraded and absorption is slowed. Typical products on the market take up to 90 minutes to kick in, but Azuca’s are made to take effect within two to 15 minutes of consumption.

“The partnership with Wana Brands allows us to bring our fast-acting culinary technology to a large universe of cannabis consumers for a more controlled and positive experience,” said Azuca president and CEO Kim Rael. “We look forward to long term growth and success.”

Wana became the No. 1 brand of cannabis infused edibles in the United States by leading the industry in innovation. Wana’s partnership with Azuca further expands its product portfolio with a range of different onset times and duration of effects, as well as CBD/THC ratios and a variety of different dosages. The portfolio is designed so that products can be used singly or in combination to address specific health, wellness and recreational needs. Wana’s products undergo rigorous internal and external testing to ensure precise dosing, the highest quality, and the greatest reliability.
