Surterra Wellness Launches Its First Medical Cannabis Product for Texas Patients – PRNewswire

AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Surterra Wellness (Surterra), one of the fastest growing health and wellness companies in the United States, today announced the Texas launch of Tranquil™, a high-CBD, low-THC medical cannabis tincture for patients living with intractable epilepsy.
