MÜV™ and Wana: Award-Winning Cannabis Edibles
The goal at MÜV™ Dispensary isn’t being the first. It’s to provide the best medical cannabis products to Florida Patients.
Wana Brands is the best producers of edibles – just ask Colorado and Arizona patients, where the brand is the number one seller of edibles. Soon (pending Department of Health approval), with the expansion of our exclusive partnership, Wana Sour Chews will be MÜVing into a dispensary near you.
Who is Wana?
Wana Brands was one of the first makers of infused products in Colorado, dating back to 2010. That’s 10 years of infused products!
Their proprietary blend of all-natural flavors, pectin, and cannabis tincture was awarded the honor of Cannabis Manufacturer of the Year in Colorado, and received an A+ from the Better Business Bureau in the same year. The success of the female-owned business has garnered attention from Forbes and Green Entrepreneur, who affectionately dubbed founder and CEO Nancy Whiteman the “Martha Stewart of Edibles.”
MÜV is committed to bringing consistent alternative medicine to Florida Patients. Wana, too, is dedicated to consistency. The edible products were lab tested before it was a requirement in Colorado to ensure quality, consistent products (sound familiar? MÜV has conducted in-house and third-party testing since its inception!).
Research and development are at the heart of both of our companies, with the prime example being Wana’s search for the perfect pectin base – the company tested 20 different types of pectin to achieve the ideal texture for Sour Chews. The use of pectin renders Sour Chews both vegan and gluten-free, with an added bonus of pectin being more easily digested when compared to gelatin.
Speaking of ingredients, Wana uses all-natural ingredients every step of the way. Natural sugars are the sweetener of choice as opposed to sorbitol, which acts as a laxative in high quantities. Mineral oil, commonly used to keep gummies from sticking together, is never used as the ingredient also functions as a laxative in high doses. And, to ensure accurate dosing, Wana infuses their Sour Chews during the cooking process, in order to achieve homogeneity of cannabinoids throughout the Sour Chews.
What should Florida patients know about edibles?
Edibles are a great solution for patients that require a smoke-free delivery of cannabinoids. Of note, however, is the conversion of cannabinoids. When orally ingested, THC converts to 11-hydroxy-THC, which is five times more psychoactive than THC. Newcomers to edibles will want to consume a 2.5-5 mg dose to start.
Consuming an edible with a meal helps to hasten the onset of effects, particularly when the meal is based in healthy fats – THC is fat-soluble, and therefore breaks down more quickly with a meal. Keeping MÜV CBD Tincture on-hand during an edibles dosing is always recommended, as it may counteract any uncomfortable effects.
When can we expect Wana Sour Chews at MÜV?
Since winning a medical cannabis license, MÜV by AltMed Florida has ventured to bring cannabis products to market the right way. That includes waiting for official rules from the Department of Health to ensure we build a proper edibles kitchen up to DOH standards. MÜV Patients can expect to see Wana Sour Chews at the end of the year, pending all DOH required approvals.
As the launch of Wana Sour Chews approaches, we will be releasing more educational pieces on the consumption of edibles. Stay tuned for more details on the exciting MÜV and Wana Brands partnership expansion.
