WALNUT CREEK, CA, March 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - CaniBrands, a consumer packaged goods company entering the US cannabis and hemp CBD markets, partners with Sonder to establish a Center of Excellence for inhalable products in Santa Rosa, California.
Sonder's brand, with amazing packaging and shelf appeal, has a passionate following with the 'Culture Makers' of our time.
