Wana’s groundbreaking Optimals line expands to Missouri with launch of cannabinoid-powered Fast Asleep and Stay Asleep Gummies

Nearly one in five Americans suffers from chronic sleep issues and fails to achieve the recommended seven to nine hours of sleep per night. For sleepless Missourians in need of a science-based solution, Wana Brands is releasing its bestselling Wana Optimals Stay Asleep and Fast Asleep cannabis gummies across the state. Each can be used alone or combined as a stackable solution with Fast Asleep offering a quick-onset, low-dose solution while Stay Asleep offers a potent, longer-lasting option. 

Roughly 70% of young adults who casually use cannabis report using it for sleep. According to the Sleep Foundation, sleep quality is impaired if it takes more than 30 minutes to fall asleep, people wake more than once per night, lie awake for more than 20 minutes upon waking, or spend less than 85 percent of time in bed asleep.

“Experts estimate that between 50 and 70 million people in the U.S. struggle with ongoing sleep issues. With that in mind, we set out to create a plant based option for those in need of a powerful and safe solution to get sleep, stay asleep, or both,” said Nancy Whiteman, CEO, Wana Brands. “Our innovative gummy sleep formulations are backed by extensive research and combine the most effective cannabinoids and functional ingredients available to help people get a great night’s sleep. Our Fast Asleep gummy enables users to fall asleep within 15 minutes or, if you’re prone to waking up in the middle of the night, our Stay Asleep gummies are ideal for a full night’s rest with no next-day grogginess. You can even take them together to achieve both results at once.”

Stay Asleep: Each Dream Berry gummy contains 20mg CBD for calming and relaxing effects and to promote REM sleep; 5mg CBN, which can lower stress, relieve tension, and alleviate physical discomfort; 5mg CBG for its relaxing and anti-inflammatory effects; 10mg THC, which delivers a sedating effect and works with the CBD to help regulate the body’s circadian rhythm; and 30+ specialized terpenes that induce sleepiness. 

Fast Asleep: Also featuring the Dream Berry flavor, each gummy is created with fast, effective and innovative TiME (Thermodynamic Individual Molecular Encapsulation), a quick onset nano-technology from Azuca. For most, this means onset in less than 15 minutes and a Delta-9-THC experience that lasts two to four hours. Each gummy includes 10mg CBD, 2mg CBN, 2mg CBG, a low 2mg dose of THC, 1mg melatonin and 30+ specialized terpenes. 

To identify the appropriate terpenes (naturally-occurring compounds that give different cannabis cultivars their unique scent, taste and effects), Wana partnered with Abstrax and Effects Lab by Budboard, using AI algorithms to harness consumer data Analyzing millions of data points, the AI software identified 30 of 400 known terpenes that were most frequently used for for sleep by real consumers, informing the curated terpene blend found in the Stay Asleep and Fast Asleep formulations.


All Wana Optimals products are grounded in science and crafted to help people achieve concrete wellness goals via new combinations of rare and major cannabinoids, terpenes, and other plant-derived ingredients. Wana remains a leader in cannabinoid research and development, using science to guide industry-leading and best-selling product innovation.
