BOULDER, Colo. (Sept. 1, 2021) – PRESS RELEASE – As many as 70 million people in the United States wrestle with unsatisfactory sleep. But today, sleep sufferers across Colorado have a solution—Wana Optimals Fast Asleep gummies. Fast Asleep is the first product from Wana Brands’ new line of daily wellness products, Wana Optimals, that are steeped in science and crafted to help people achieve different health goals through the power of plants.
Leveraging proprietary encapsulation technology for quick onset in 5-15 minutes, the Wana Optimals Fast Asleep custom sleep formulation—powered by Wana’s ongoing research on minor cannabinoids and terpenes—is carefully crafted to address the root causes of sleeplessness, such as stress and physical discomfort, rather than simply inducing drowsiness, as with most sleep medicines. The majority of other products on the market are designed to knock a person out to sleep, while the Fast Asleep formulation is designed to get better sleep, faster.
Each fast-acting gummy contains 10mg CBD for calming and relaxing effects, and promoting REM sleep; 2mg CBN, which can lower stress, relieve tension, and alleviate physical discomfort; 2mg CBG for its relaxing and anti-inflammatory effects; 2mg THC, which works with the CBD to help regulate the body’s circadian rhythm; 1mg Melatonin, a sleep hormone to enhance the effects of these powerhouse cannabinoids; 30+ Specialized Terpenes, chosen via extensive user research for their sleep-promoting properties.
“At Wana, we are fully committed to harnessing the power of the cannabis plant and delivering on the many promises it provides for different consumer experiences and benefits,” said Nancy Whiteman, CEO of Wana Brands. “To do this, we are looking well beyond the two most well-known cannabinoids THC and CBD, at the many other cannabinoids and terpenes produced by the plant that are known to have their own pharmacological effects. Wana Optimals Fast Asleep is our first offering meant to achieve specific results like better sleep. Why use a sledgehammer when you can use a scalpel?”
Fast Asleep is the first product in the Wana Optimals’ line of daily wellness products that leverage the power of a variety of rare cannabinoids, including CBG and CBN, for their unique effects. As consumer education about and research into cannabinoids grows, demand for these potent and dynamic plant compounds will continue to spike. Wana is at the forefront of cannabinoid research and development, and its Optimals line stands as a leading-edge product. Wana Optimals Fast Asleep Gummies are vegan and organically sweetened.
Fast and effective, Wana Optimals harness Thermodynamic Individual Molecular Encapsulation (TiME), a quick-onset technology from Azuca. While traditional edibles result in metabolism of the cannabinoids by the liver, Wana Optimals feature individually encapsulated 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 feeling sleepy faster.
Fast Asleep gummies’ efficacy also depends in part on the suite of 30+ terpenes included in the Fast Asleep formula. Wana partnered with Abstrax and Effects Lab by Budboard to harness consumer data and AI algorithms to find correlations between strains — and their terpene profiles — that were noted by users to help with sleep. These terpene blends were replicated in the formulations used in the Fast Asleep product.
