Wana Brands to Expand into Maryland
Company partnered with Curio Wellness to produce medicinal products.
Wana Brands has partnered with Curio Wellness to bring cannabis-infused medicinal products to patients in Maryland.
Since 2010, Wana Brands has expanded from Colorado into six other states, with Maryland being seventh.
“Curio Wellness is the leading cannabis company in Maryland, and we were extremely impressed by the professionalism and the quality of the facility and the team. They are proven operators who really know how to execute,” said Wana Brands CEO Nancy Whiteman.
As a vertically integrated company, Curio’s manufacturing processes and institutional knowledge of the Maryland market — from seed to store — are unmatched. Wana's diverse line of products will be held to the same cultivation and processing standards that both companies take pride in.
“We are excited to partner with Wana Brands to expand our medicinal product line for all Maryland patients,” said Curio Wellness CEO Michael Bronfein. “At Curio, we are committed to offering only the highest quality, most effective products all consumers can rely on. Partnering with Wana not only complements that commitment, but also who we are as a company.”
Like Wana, Curio is a science-driven producer, offering award-winning medicinal cannabis products throughout Maryland. Today, Curio products are available in most Maryland dispensaries, including in their own flagship store and wellness center in Timonium, outside Baltimore.
“The flagship store serves as a tremendous resource for the company’s research and development efforts,” Bronfein said. “What our team of experienced executives and renowned researchers and physicians learn first-hand helps define our product portfolio and best serve our retail partners and patients.”
Curio Wellness plans to begin production in the second quarter, bringing Wana products to market in Maryland in Summer 2020.
