PLEASANTON, Calif. – A new era for cannabis gummies has arrived. Innovative hemp and cannabis infusion technology company Vertosa, known for infusing over 100 fast-acting hemp and cannabis products on the market, is proud to announce new developments for infusions into the rapidly growing category of cannabis and hemp-CBD gummies, including a patent-pending emulsion system that ensures faster onset and offset, uniformed distribution across each batch, and consistent target potency.
“We have performed extensive research for infusion of Vertosa’s emulsion systems into gummies and are very happy to offer a solution for the most persistent challenges facing this sector of the cannabis industry, including reaching target homogeneity, potency and bioavailability,” said Vertosa Founder and Chief Science Officer, Dr. Harold Han.
Validating the effectiveness of their emulsion system for gummies, Vertosa performed the following initiatives:
Vertosa conducted a consumer research study comparing the bioavailability of gummies infused by Vertosa against a generic gummy infused by distillate. The results showed that the average onset of a Vertosa-infused gummy is about 10 minutes, while the distillate gummy has an onset averaging around 45 minutes to one hour.
Third-party laboratory testing analysis consistently verified that the target dosage of cannabinoids of each Vertosa infused gummy was spot on, ensuring brands that utilize Vertosa’s emulsion system will be able to label their products accurately.
Vertosa worked with industry-leading flavor houses to determine flavor types and combinations that taste best with their signature gummy emulsion system.
Vertosa emulsions give product manufacturers the flexibility to use unique cannabinoid and terpene profiles to create distinct consumer experiences and product differentiation.
“Vertosa quickly emerged as a leader in the CBD space and the best partner for us to develop the highest quality, most effective CBD confections in the market,” said Shaina Kerrigan, founder of cannabis confections brand Molly Jones. “Going above and beyond what their competitors offered, the Vertosa team worked closely with us to make sure their CBD emulsion blended seamlessly and effectively with our recipes.”
Vertosa’s water-based emulsion system for gummies offers additional technical benefits for brand partners: compared with a distillate infusion, Vertosa’s formula and process is more cost-effective, consistent, and is more seamlessly incorporated into gummy recipes, allowing brands to propel their developing products through the supply chain and onto the marketplace in a timely manner.
These advancements come at a significant time in the industry, as the cannabis gummy market is booming with gummies making up the majority of ingestible cannabis sales in 2020 across states including Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada and Oregon. Similarly, the global CBD gummies market is expected to register a compound annual growth rate of 31.9 percent from 2019 to 2025.
