Nirvana Spirits’ Cannabis-Infused Drinks

Based in Tampa, Florida, the company Nirvana Spirits has stood out for creating drinks infused with cannabis, so it has also developed gin with the same marijuana extract.

As confirmed by the same company, in June 2016 researcher Ram Ramcharran wanted to create handmade vodka and after several trial and error tests released its “Touch One Vodka”.

The drink was described with a clean and fresh spirit with the essence of cannabis and therefore began to develop other products such as gin infused with cannabis and aimed at other audiences.

Leaf Trade is speeding up the delivery of marijuana

Leaf Trade is also headquartered in Chicago. They focus on creating a platform to streamline the connection between customers and dispensaries. There, it is possible to explore trendy products, earn loyalty bonuses, and request marketing materials and samples.

Instead of growing and processing cannabis, the company helps consumers manage the logistics of delivery and collaboration. This is why they seek to facilitate the delivery of marijuana.

Kannatopia, a safe space for cannabis users

Another Chicago-based company, Kannatopia, is developing a safe space for anyone over the age of 21. Their mission is to connect and share reviews and guides on any aspect of cannabis.

They seek to provide a special site for people who do not want to openly share their opinions about cannabis, so it is also open for other companies to advertise and connect with customers.

Surterra Wellness, an alternative to medicinal cannabis

Surterra Wellness is based in Atlanta and has its origins in 2014. From 2015, they began to receive more than $100 million in investments.

The medical cannabis company is licensed to operate in Texas and Florida. They are also developing clinical research related to cannabinoid treatment for anxiety and pain, as well as other health problems.
