ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Everest Apothecary, which operates seven medical cannabis dispensaries around New Mexico, has announced a partnership with Azuca, a national producer of cannabis-derived edibles.
The partnership will allow Everest to market and distribute Azuca products and utilize the brand’s patent-pending process, which is designed to make the edibles activate faster, according to a news release from Azuca.
Azuca, which focuses on cannabinoid — or “CBD” — edibles, fills Everest’s market need for fast-acting edibles, the release said.
Azuca has developed a process that makes cannabinoid molecules water friendly, and enables faster uptake, potentially within 15 minutes, according to the release.
Azuca products will hit shelves in New Mexico later this spring.
