Wana Brands is partnering with TerrAscend Corp. to introduce Wana Brands products at the Apothecarium retail stores and additional third-party retailers in New Jersey. The partnership will also transfer to TerrAscend, the manufacturing and sales of Wana Brands existing portfolio of products in Maryland.
Pursuant to the agreement, TerrAscend will serve as the exclusive sole manufacturer, supplier and commercial partner for Wana Brands products in New Jersey. The new relationship in Maryland will also bring some of its best-selling SKUs, such as its fast-acting “Quick” and health and wellness line “Optimals,” to Maryland as Wana Brands seek to aggressively expand its product portfolio in the state.
“This partnership is a substantial addition to our retail and wholesale operations in New Jersey, one of the most robust cannabis markets on the East Coast,” said Jason Wild, executive chairman of TerrAscend. “Edibles are among the industry’s fastest-growing consumer categories, as well as one of the strongest entry points for new cannabis consumers. We also look forward to building on the amazing presence Wana Brands has cultivated in Maryland by adding new SKUs for their patient base in the state.”
“We could not be more excited to partner with TerrAscend to introduce Wana Brands to New Jersey cannabis connoisseurs for the very first time and launch several of our top-selling SKUs from other markets in Maryland,” said Nancy Whiteman, CEO and co-founder of Wana Brands. “We would like to thank Curio for their partnership over the past three years to position Wana Brands as a top gummy in Maryland, and we look forward to continuing to work with their retail stores as we make this transition towards the end of March 2023.”
