(OAKLAND, Calif.) Premier, Oakland-based edible company, Mari y Juana will partner with science-first cannabis company Vertosa.

According to Yahoo News, Mari y Juana and its subsidiary Mari y Juana Beverages Co will use Vertosa state-of-the-art emulsion technology to develop new types of infused foods and beverages.

Mari y Juana (MJ) is a cannabis company that uses top-grade ingredients to produce high-quality edibles inspired by Mexican culture.

According to the press release, this partnership will allow MJ to expand its operations and Vertosa to put its premier technology to use. The release also indicates that the production of four uniquely flavored cannabis-infused carbonated soft drinks is scheduled to begin in February.

"Vertosa has set the gold standard in emulsion technology and we are honored to collaborate with them on what we expect to be the first of many projects,” said Daniel Torres, Founder and CEO of Mari y Juana® Foods Co.

Vertosa was founded in 2018. It's a science-first cannabis company that creates durable and exciting ingredients for infused products. "Its patented and patent-pending emulsion systems are carefully designed for the specific needs of each customer, with pre-suspended aqueous solutions that create incredibly homogeneous and stable products while maximizing bioavailability, clarity and taste," the release said.

Mari y Juana was founded in Los Angeles in 2015 and has always sought to infuse cannabis products with traditional and innovative approaches to Mexican cuisine. The slogan "Made in California of Mexican Descent™" highlights the authenticity of the brand. Edibles are the focus of the brand but its beverage subsidiary has allowed the company to expand into a new market.
