Wana Brands and AltMed Florida Division Expand Partnership in Exclusive Deal to Bring America’s Favorite Edible to the Sunshine State
With recently enacted rules for edible medical cannabis in Florida, Wana Brands and AltMed Florida announce an exclusive licensing agreement to allow AltMed Florida to produce and distribute Wana Edibles at MÜV™ Medical Cannabis Dispensaries (once approved by the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use). AltMed Florida is one of the fastest-growing companies in the state, with 25 MÜV Dispensaries open now and 15 more in development throughout Florida.
“Through our partnership with AltMed Florida, Wana Brands will now be able to offer Floridians an alternative form of cannabis consumption that can better fit their health needs,” said Nancy Whiteman, CEO, Wana Brands. “This proven partnership helped to build Wana into the No. 1 selling edible in Arizona and looks to do the same in Florida through the AltMed Florida division.”
The partnership between Wana Brands, an industry leader in cannabis-infused products and the No. 1 edibles brand in the United States, and AltMed Florida, a vertically integrated cannabis company with a state-of-the-art indoor cultivation facility in Apollo Beach, is one centered on a mutual attention to quality products and services.
Illustrating this is how Wana’s cannabis-infused products are consistently judged to be best-in-class in multiple and year-over-year evaluations by media and industry observers. AltMed Florida, which has a mission to provide the highest quality and variety of cannabis products to its patients, was recently awarded the 2019 Leafbuyer Award for Best Product Selection in a Florida Cannabis Dispensary.
“We know our Florida patients are always best served by the highest-quality products we can offer,” said John Tipton, CEO of AltMed Florida. “Through this partnership with Wana Brands, we will have another quality alternative for our cannabis patients to experience.”
This partnership will bring Wana, America’s number one edible brand, exclusively to MÜV Medical Cannabis Dispensaries making it available to the more than 409,000 active patients in Florida.
Wana Brands’ products are held to the strictest quality standards. All of Wana’s products have undergone rigorous third-party testing since the company was launched in 2010. Wana Edibles are expected to be on MÜV Medical Cannabis Dispensary shelves later this year, pending all required approvals from the Florida Department of Health’s Office of Medical Marijuana Use.
