Our Passion


Verra Wellness believes that purification and scientific formulation are the keys to unlocking the power of the plant and developing safer and more effective cannabinoid-based products.  We at Verra work closely with the highly experienced scientists at Next Frontier Biosciences who are reshaping the industry by using advanced pharmaceutical methods to develop purified cannabinoid products for nasal, sublingual and transdermal administration.

Scientifically formulated to provide accurate dosing, improved bioavailability and optimized cannabinoid profiles, the Verra Wellness line of products offer fast acting and consistent results. Additionally, their unique modes of administration are discreet and effective, providing both medical and recreational cannabis users with desirable alternatives to smoking, vaporizing or eating cannabis-infused products.

At Verra, we maintain an unyielding commitment to scientific excellence and integrity, so our products aren’t just created from cannabis—they’re derived from truth.

At Verra, we maintain a scientific approach to every step of the formulation process—from selecting our heirloom cannabis strains to purifying our cannabinoids and protecting their integrity. Because we’re committed to delivering cannabis wellness products with the kind of quality, consistency and efficacy you would expect from a team of biotech professionals.

Our People


Dot Colagiovanni, Verra’s Vice President of Product Development, realized just how powerful cannabis could be when she started benefiting from the effects herself. After Dot’s son was born, she learned that his liver wouldn’t continue functioning into adulthood.

At age 10 he was placed on the liver transplant list, and Dot and her family set about the tremendous task of trying to live “normal” lives while they watched their son dying. Dot was taking care of two kids. She was working as a pharmaceutical executive full time. And, naturally, she was experiencing situational depression and anxiety.

That is, until she used cannabis as medicine.

Dot developed a nightly ritual. After putting her kids to bed, she’d close her bathroom door, smoke a joint and finally feel her anxiety retreat and the weight of the world lessen just a little. With 20 years of experience in biotech, she knew that the relief she was getting from cannabis wasn’t like anything she could have gotten from a potentially addictive prescription drug. She wasn’t waking up groggy. She felt like herself every morning – clear headed and ready to face the challenges ahead.

That knowledge was so powerful that it led Dot to quit her job in pursuit of making the natural benefits of cannabis more available to more people – and hopefully more moms facing challenges of their own. She joined her close friends and colleagues, Marc Graboyes and Paul Johnson, and began working to formulate revolutionary cannabis products.
