Summer of Quick: Wana Brands Redefines Happy Hour by Launching Innovative Fast-Acting Gummies in Markets Across the Nation

North America’s No. 1 edibles manufacturer celebrates summer by expanding availability of quick-onset edible featuring Delta-9, inhalation-type THC effects

BOULDER, Colo. (July 26, 2021) – As summer kicks into full swing with live concerts and sporting events, Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies are rolling out across North America and now available in five U.S. states and nine Canadian provinces. Providing Delta-9 THC effects similar to inhalation with an onset time of just 5-15 minutes and an average offset time of only three hours, the unique gummie offers an appealing, hangover-free, lung-friendly alternative to alcohol for nearly any social occasion.

“From Denver’s MLB All-Star Game to Michigan’s Faster Horses music festival, events across the nation are returning and the pent-up desire to get out, be more social and connect with others has probably never been as strong as it is this summer,” said Nancy Whiteman, CEO of Wana Brands. “As we venture out for more social gatherings this summer, Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies are the perfect complement to a happy hour gathering, concert or backyard barbecue. With an onset time of just 5-15 minutes and a shorter duration, these class-specific, cocktail-inspired gummies are ideal for summer socializing — especially for people who are seeking an alternative to drinking alcohol or smoking cannabis.”

Already available in California, Colorado and Oregon, the first-of-its-kind product is launching now in Michigan and Oklahoma, with more states to follow.

“We are using the launch of Wana Quick as a call to action to support nonprofits that are important to the communities we serve,” Whiteman continued. “From helping those reeling from the pandemic to efforts to fight an active wildfire season, we want to expand upon our support for local organizations. So as we all emerge in an effort to return to normalcy, we can also use it as a moment to support our neighbors. We are calling it the ‘Summer of Quick.’”

Wana’s Summer of Quick Tour will include stops in California, Colorado, Michigan and Oklahoma at events such as the Trinidaddio Blues Fest, Colorado State Fair & Rodeo and the 49th Annual RockyGrass Festival. Colorado dispensary stops feature the Wana sprinter van hosting Wana Quick Mobile Happy Hours. Customers can enjoy games, music, prizes and flash deals on Wana products. Wana’s Summer of Quick Tour supports nonprofit organizations across the states where Wana is available. Some of this year’s beneficiaries include We Don’t Waste, Wildland Firefighter Foundation and HeadCount, among others. More information on upcoming tour stops can be found at the Summer of Quick Consumer Microsite.

Fast and effective, Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies harness Thermodynamic Individual Molecular Encapsulation (TiME), a new quick-onset technology from Azuca. While traditional edibles convert Delta-9-THC in the digestive tract to 11-Hydroxy-THC, Wana Quick gummies feature individually encapsulated Delta-9-THC cannabinoids with greater bioavailability that work at the molecular level to bypass the liver and enter the bloodstream immediately. This means onset in less than 15 mins for most, and a Delta-9-THC experience that lasts two to four hours.

Although availability varies in each legal market, Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies come in a variety of ratios, classes and flavors, all featuring Wana Brands’ proprietary gluten-free, vegan recipe, free of high fructose corn syrup. However, unlike their actual alcoholic beverage namesakes, Wana Quick Fast-Acting Gummies are discreet, convenient, lung-friendly, and won’t leave consumers with a hangover. Options include:

  • Sativa Peach Bellini 5mg: The juicy peach flavor of a sparkling peach bellini is paired with fast-acting technology. Infused with sativa terpene-enhanced distillate, which has been known to cause a more uplifting and motivating effect. 5mg THC per piece, 100mg THC per package (20 pieces).
  • Indica Piña Colada 5mg: Rich and creamy pineapple and coconut flavors of a piña colada, paired with fast acting technology. Infused with indica terpene-enhanced distillate, which often results in a mellow, stress-relieving effect. 5mg THC per piece, 100mg THC per package (20 pieces).
