Boulder-based Wana Brands has developed a strong reputation in cannabis-infused products and is expanding its brand outside of Colorado. Co-Founder Nancy Whiteman discussed the growth of the company and the niche it is targeting in an interview with CannaInsider.
While its products are varied, one of the more interesting ones are the Wana Caps, which are made in partnership with an Israeli biopharmaceutical company. The line has three extended release formulations, including 10mg of THC and 1mg of CBD, 10mg of each and 10mg of CBD and 1mg of THC. The latter two are the most popular.
Wana Brands has expanded to Oregon and Nevada, and it is looking to partner in other states as well. Whiteman points to the significant regulatory experience the company has developed as being a big potential time-saver for prospective partners.
