Wana Brands Products Now Available to Illinois Medical Marijuana Patients

Medical cannabis patients across Illinois now have access to Wana Brands products, the nation’s most dependable infused edibles, just as the state kicks off the new Opioid Alternative Pilot Program allowing patients suffering from conditions that require an opioid prescription to purchase cannabis. Wana Brands’ consistent, top-quality medical cannabis products are available in Illinois dispensaries through an exclusive licensing agreement with Grassroots Cannabis, Illinois’ largest medical cannabis company. https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/maven-user-photos/theweedblog/medical/EY5AJpd_ekqbEzUORq8dTw/9UtOrvuaEEW_e2GgDTxajg Wana flavors and ratios available in Illinois include Blueberry Indica (100 mg per package, 10 pieces) and Mango Sativa (100 mg per package, 10 pieces). Known for consistent dosing, Wana gummies are handcrafted and infused with high-quality tincture during the cooking process to ensure the best tasting, highest quality, consistent gummie on the market. Wana gummies are made with fruit pectin, not gelatin. A specially selected fruit pectin gives Wana Sour Gummies their amazing texture and makes them vegan. All Wana products are made with gluten-free ingredients and taste like real fruit, thanks to all-natural flavoring, coloring and sugar. Wana Gummies also have no sorbitol or mineral oil, both of which can cause stomach upset.

“Cannabis offers a safe alternative to the deadly opioid crisis,” said Nancy Whiteman, Founder & CEO of Wana Brands. “Wana Brands is ready to provide safe and consistent products to the state’s medical marijuana patients.”

More than 52,000 patients have joined Illinois’ Medical Cannabis Registry Program since it launched in September 2014, with those numbers expected to double as the Opioid Alternative Pilot Program comes online. Now doctors are allowed to prescribe medical marijuana instead of opioids to help patients with chronic pain, stemming from cancer or other medical issues. Qualifying medical conditions include HIV / AIDS, ALS, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, Crohn's disease, severe fibromyalgia, glaucoma, hepatitis C, lupus, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, spinal cord disease / injury, traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
