FORT COLLINS, Colo., Dec. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Geocann and Sunderstorm are proud to announce the expansion of their partnership to key international markets that will begin with Thailand. The agreement follows Sunderstorm’s successful growth of KANHA Nano powered by VESIsorb® launched in 2019 that has gained a reputation as a leading edibles brand in California, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Colorado.

“Sunderstorm has pioneered the fast-acting edibles market in the U.S. and has championed VESIsorb® technology-based cannabis formulations to deliver superior performing KANHA products that have gained a loyal customer following,” said Jesse Lopez, CEO and founder of Geocann. “We are committed to their continued success and prepared to support their international expansion as we remain focused on novel cannabis research and innovative product development that provides valuable brand differentiation for our partners around the world.”

In peer-reviewed published studies, VESIsorb® has shown statistically significant improvements for all measured pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters of cannabinoids and terpenes, including maximal plasma concentration (Cmax), area under the curve (AUC), and time to peak absorption (Tmax) – often referred to as “fast acting.”

“Our partnership with Geocann is the platform for providing consumers around the world with safe and effective products that are validated in both peer-reviewed and well-designed pilot studies,” said Cameron Clarke, Chief Executive Officer at Sunderstorm. “The global demand for fast acting and high bioavailable cannabis products has increased dramatically, and leveraging Geocann’s VESIsorb® technology allows us to become a dominant global cannabis brand where we can improve the lives of millions of consumers in the U.S. and key international markets.”

With the recent changes of cannabis regulations in Thailand, Sunderstorm will work directly with THCG Group Ltd., a Thailand-based, vertically integrated medical cannabis license holder who will manage the cultivation, production, and distribution of KANHA edibles powered by VESIsorb®. The two groups presented the products earlier this month at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center in Bangkok. With 70 million citizens and 40 million annual tourists, Thailand is expected to be a large medical and recreational cannabis market with an estimated USD $1.2 billion in sales by 2025.
