If you’re an edibles-loving Coloradan, you’re probably familiar with Wana Gummies. The Boulder-based company has spent the last 11+ years developing a delicious and consistent recipe that virtually any adult can enjoy; vegan, gluten-free, organically sweetened, enhanced with 30+ terpenes, and totally melt-proof.
There’s a lot to be said for doing one thing well. But Wana’s innovation team continues to push the boundaries of what cannabis gummies can do. Here are four specialty products for when you need more than a classic edible.
For busy bees, bud-lovers, and extroverts
Traditional edibles aren’t for everyone. For one thing, they can take up to 90 minutes to kick in. They also tend to produce a heavier “body high,” lasting up to 4-6 hours, almost your whole day.
For years, there was an empty space on dispensary shelves for an edible that could work quickly and provide a lung-friendly alternative to those who prefer the effects of smoking flower. Enter Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies.
These cocktail-inspired edibles come in flavors like Appletini, Cosmopolitan, and Colorado Sunrise, which are powered by an advanced nano-technology called Thermodynamic Individual Molecular Encapsulation (TIME). It encapsulates each cannabinoid molecule in a thin water-soluble layer, allowing your body to absorb the THC quickly and efficiently. Consumers have reported feeling the effects within 15 minutes.
But TIME is about more than just rapid cannabinoid absorption. When you inhale cannabis, you’re pulling Delta-9-THC into your bloodstream. Delta-9 is what gives you that cerebral “head high” most people associate with smoking flower. The water-soluble, encapsulated Delta-9 THC molecules are absorbed through the esophagus into the bloodstream before reaching the liver and being converted to 11-Hydroxy-THC. This results in a duration of effect closer to smoked flower, 2-4 hours.
For people who need help sleeping
Wana Optimals are a first-of-its-kind series of cannabinoid-powered wellness solutions, infused with carefully selected terpenes and other natural ingredients. These gummies are about harnessing the power of the plant to help you achieve specific results in your daily life.
Wana Fast Asleep Gummies are also made with fast-acting encapsulation technology, and consumers have reported feeling sleepy in under 15 minutes. They are infused with a custom sleep blend of 10mg CBD, 2mg THC, and 1mg melatonin. This custom sleep blend tackles the source of your sleeplessness and helps achieve a restful, rejuvenating sleep that doesn’t leave you feeling groggy or lethargic the next morning. Research suggests that a low dose of THC combined with a higher amount of CBD helps reduce stress and muscle tension. This pairing is supplemented by the cannabinoids CBG and CBN, which early studies suggest can help consumers fall and stay asleep and lower stress levels. But don’t take our word for it…try these gummies and see how rested you feel when you wake up!
For fitness fanatics
Wana Optimals Fit Gummies contain THCV, a relatively unknown and non-intoxicating cannabinoid that contains many of the health benefits of Delta-9 THC without the psychotropic effects. Instead of getting you high, THCV has been shown to heighten focus and improve executive functions in your brain. Instead of making you drowsy, it can help you feel more alert. And instead of giving you the munchies, consumers have reported that it may reduce unwanted cravings.
More focus with a chilled-out appetite means an increased ability to make healthy decisions. That makes Wana Fit Gummies an exciting new tool for anyone looking to give their fitness routine a boost.
For the cannabis connoisseur
Wana Spectrum Gummies are the newest addition to the Wana product line. They’re made with first-press, solventless live rosin, created in small batches by the pros at Mighty Melts. Live rosin comes from fresh frozen cannabis rather than plants that have been cured for dry herb smoking. This preserves the active compounds – including terpenes, which give individual cultivars their unique taste and effects – found in the living plant, delivering a powerful, multi-dimensional high, unlike any other experience.
Unlike live resin, which is made using chemical solvents like butane, live rosin is extracted using only ice water, heat, and pressure, making it one of the purest forms of cannabis you can consume. And Wana has embraced the back-to-nature benefits it offers by creating four frosty flavors that complement the naturally occurring terpene profiles in each gummy’s formulation. There’s earthy Watermelon Slushy, tangy Citrus Sorbet, fruity Tropical Smoothie, and funky, skunky Berry Gelato.
Finally, Wana Spectrum Gummies are powered by the same nano-encapsulation technology found in the Wana Quick line, making them the first live rosin edibles reported to deliver effects within 15 minutes.
There you have it: four specialty gummies that deliver different experiences. Not sure which one is right for you? Visit your local Star Buds and consult with a budtender. The only way to find out is to try them for yourself.
