Vertosa will help State B develop proprietary formulations for its CBD and THC-infused beverages. The announcement comes shortly after State B launched three new SKUs — Resolve, Sparkle and Zing — in California using Vertosa's water-stable cannabis emulsions.
Vertosa's patented and patent-pending emulsion offerings are eight times more bioavailable than conventional cannabis oils and offer a consistent user experience. Customizable based on application, ingredients and desired effect, Vertosa provides State B with effective and water-stable solutions designed to take effect within 15 minutes. Vertosa's GMP-certified and third-party tested emulsions are one of the most stable, compatible and versatile suites of products available on the market.
"We tasked Vertosa with helping us develop our new line of wellness beverages featuring functional ingredients that allow consumers to reach a specific state of mind, and the R&D team certainly rose to the occasion," said Kelly Ann Woods, founder and CEO of State B. "Vertosa offers an incredible bioavailable emulsion for our beverages that helps us create delicious and consistent cannabis experiences for our customers. We're proud to partner with a team whose commitment to science and the cannabis industry is unparalleled, and look forward to working together as we seek to expand our product offering."
State B beverages are formulated with varying ratios of THC and CBD combined with unique blends of nootropics, adaptogenic herbs, botanical extracts and terpenes to create targeted experiences.

"We're thrilled to partner with State B as their exclusive U.S. emulsion provider and bring reimagined cannabis-infused beverages to California," said Ben Larson, Chief Executive Officer of Vertosa. "State B has found a niche in the market where the Functional and Better-For-You categories meet.
