April 1, 2022 |by Jim Baudino | Comments Off on Wunder

WUNDER began with three people who wondered a better way to socialize with friends and relax with family. Alexi, father of three, Phil, OG cannasseur, and Christian, former-finance canna-curious adventurer, wondered about a better alternative to alcohol. This wonder turned into a mission, a movement that allows us all to embrace healthier choices while seeking joyful experiences—so that we can unwind when we need to, be present for what matters most, and show up as our best selves afterward.

We’re now a choir of dedicated canna-beverage enthusiasts. We believe in a future—that’s right around the corner—where we all make more conscious decisions about what, when and how we imbibe. We Wunderkind want for a more present, more curious global community. Be well, do good. Pop, collaborate and glisten.

Reason to join Cannabis Industry?
I joined the cannabis industry, first and foremost, for my love for the plant. I’ve seen first-hand how its therapeutic benefits can provide relief to pain and illness and how it can help users find peace and homeostasis. I’ve seen it’s power to unit people of all walks of life together in its defense. Lastly, I joined the cannabis industry for the opportunities that it does and will provide. I firmly believe that cannabis and it’s plethora of uses known and yet to be discovered, will provide opportunities to entrepreneurs for generations to come.

Interest in Cannabis Industry?
My interest and focus on infused-beverage stems from my goal to provide more approachable and session-able ways to consume cannabis. In my life, cannabis has always been a part of my social life, but anymore, I find that myself and my friends and family are trying to get away from smoking and vaping. Infused beverages offer the social experience of beer, wine and spirits, but without the consequences of alcolhol consumption. Also, I’ve found that infused beverages provide the most enjoyable experience of all the cannabis products I’ve tried in my life.

Activities enjoy outside of work?
Outside of work, I live for music and experience festivals. They are my favorite way to spend a weekend. When I’m not able to do those, I enjoy boating activities and anything I can do with my family that includes adventure and quality time.

Reason to Join Cannabis Industry?
The unique intersection between product innovation and public policy drives my passion to participate in the cannabis and hemp industry. For years, consumers have been limited to traditional forms of cannabis (flower and hash oil). Many consumers (including myself) have been forced to hide, and enjoy the healing properties of the plant in secrecy because of regulatory restrictions. We’re now in one of the most transformative time periods in the modern age. With smartphone technologies, the world’s vast knowledge database is literally at our fingertips. Science is leading new product innovation, and cannabis is legal and more accessible than ever. By combining knowledge, science, and access, we now have an opportunity to recreate the narrative, and redefine how and why cannabis is used around the world.

Activities enjoy outside of work?
Personally love yoga, cycling, and BBQ’ing for my friends and family!
