Pioneering Partners: Wana Brands selects Buckeye Relief to bring medical marijuana infused products to Ohio


America’s Best-selling Sour Gummies to be available to Ohio Medical Marijuana Patients in Q3 2019

 Eastlake, Ohio (June 11, 2019) As Ohio’s medical marijuana program ramps up, Wana Brands—America’s No. 1 cannabis edibles producer—has announced that it will partner with Buckeye Relief, the operator of an environmentally friendly, state-of-the-art medical marijuana cultivation and processing facility, to bring cannabis-infused products to medical marijuana patients in Ohio in Q3 2019. Providing an alternative option to vaporizing flower, Wana Sour Gummies will offer medical patients a consistent and potent delivery method to address their medical conditions.  

Medical marijuana patient counts have grown exponentially in Ohio since the program came online, with more than 31,075 patients registered as of April 2019. The medical marijuana market in Ohio, the seventh most populous state, has enormous growth potential. Offering medical marijuana as an option for patients provides an effective alternative to highly addictive prescription medications such as opioids.

“Wana Brands selected Buckeye Relief because it has a strong team with solid leadership, and because it has already proven to be a leader in the Ohio market,” said Wana Founder & CEO Nancy Whiteman. “Ohio is a brand-new medical market, with many patients looking for consistent and reliable alternatives to vaporizing flower.”

Wana Brands products are known for their consistency and potency. The company has been providing third party testing of its products to ensure purity and potency since Wanawas established in 2010. The products, expected to become available in Ohio’s medical dispensaries in Q3 2019, will include Wana Sour Gummies in Mango Sativa, Blueberry Indica, Watermelon Hybrid, Strawberry Lemonade 1:1 CBD/THC and Yuzu 2:1 CBD/THC. Other items from Wana’s carefully curated line of infused cannabis products will be added in the future.

Wana Sour Gummies are handcrafted and infused with high-quality tincture during the cooking process to ensure the best tasting, highest quality, consistent gummie on the market. Wana gummies are made with fruit pectin, not gelatin. A specially selected fruit pectin gives Wana Sour Gummies their amazing texture and makes them 100% vegan. All Wana products are made with gluten-free ingredients and taste like real fruit, thanks to all-natural flavoring, coloring and sugar. Wana Gummies also have no sorbitol or mineral oil, both of which can cause stomach upset.

Buckeye Relief was founded in 2016 after Governor John Kasich signed House Bill 523 to legalize medical use of cannabis in Ohio. Since then, Buckeye Relief has played a central role in the development of Ohio’s medical marijuana industry. Buckeye Relief was Ohio’s first operational, Level One medical marijuana cultivation facility. The top-ranked company’s 60,000-square-foot facility harvested its first crop in December 2018.

 “Currently, Ohio patients have few cannabis alternatives to treat their medical conditions, so they are looking forward to an additional choice in dosing such as Wana’s consistent and reliable Sour Gummies,” said Andrew Rayburn, co-founder and CEO of Buckeye Relief. “Wana is known for high quality, great flavor, and consistency and Buckeye Relief is thrilled to be teaming up with them to bring this effective medical alternative to Ohio.”

Ohio’s medical marijuana program allows for patients with conditions including AIDS, HIV, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, Crohn’s disease, seizure disorders including epilepsy, fibromyalgia, glaucoma, hepatitis C, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, pain that is chronic, severe or intractable, Parkinson’s disease, post-traumatic stress disorder, sickle cell anemia, spinal cord disease or injury, Tourette’s syndrome, traumatic brain injury, and ulcerative colitis.

With availability to medical patients in Ohio, Wana Brands’ continues expansion from its Colorado headquarters. The Company’s consistent and potent medical marijuana products are also available in Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, Arizona, Nevada and Oregon dispensaries, with California and Florida (as regulations allow) also among the states imminently coming online. Wana Brands expects to expand internationally to Canada by 2020.
