Rochester, NY- Cirona Labs, a premier innovator in cannabinoid science, is pleased to announce a new manufacturing and product development agreement with PhenoTech, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lehua Brands Ltd., a California-based licensed cannabis manufacturer and expert in crafted cannabis extractions. The partnership will combine PhenoTech’s unique proprietary manufacturing technology with Cirona’s custom-formulated water-soluble solutions, creating new and unprecedented possibilities for cannabis product developers.
“At Cirona Labs, we’ve invested heavily in water-soluble R&D, with over 900 qualified formulations in our proprietary library. This gives us incredible range to infuse a variety of unique products and to precisely calibrate features like taste, stability, and clarity” said Hunter Friedland, Founder & CEO of Cirona Labs. “We are thrilled to work with like-minded experts at Lehua who are equally focused on delivering the gold standard for cannabis ingredients.”
Cirona Labs and PhenoTech will kick off the partnership by powering four emerging beverages from Lehua Brands: Olala, Voila, Tiki Blast, and TerpTonic, with all four brands soon-to-be available in the California dispensary and direct-to-consumer channels. As demand for high-quality water-soluble ingredients extends to gummies, tinctures, and topicals, Cirona and PhenoTech are excited at the potential opportunity to deliver best-in-class water-soluble ingredients.
“Our partnership with Cirona Labs ensures that Lehua’s house brands, and those of our partners, offer a truly differentiated consumer experience. Superior ingredients are the foundation of any premium consumer product and THC-infused edibles, drinkables, and medicinals are no exception. Together with Cirona, we are creating products that meet the needs of the discerning California cannabis consumer,” said Jonathan Fitzgerald, Co-CEO of Lehua Brands.
