CREATING
QUALITY

Making high-quality medical-grade Cannabis Essences takes scientific precision combined with tireless dedication. We strive to set the standard for superior Cannabis products that give our patients the best possible outcomes at the greatest value for money.

Our oils are extracted using cooled glycerin over a period of one year, this allows for perfect absorption of the medical components of the Cannabis without leeching out the contaminants such as terpenes and chlorophylls.

Each and every batch is extensively tested for quality and consistency. We check for pesticide residues, known solvent impurities, bacterial sterility, and any cannabinoid breakdown products that could indicate a lack of stability.

This solution still contains unwanted waxes that can interfere with the absorption of the medical CBD/THC. To remove the waxes and any remaining contaminants the solution is fractionally distilled, a process where the oil is purified by being evaporated and concentrated using the different boiling points of the different substances.

MEDICAL ASPECTS
OF CANNABIS

CBD

Δ2-cannabidiol

THC

Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol

CBD is one of over 60 compounds found in cannabis that belong to a class of molecules called cannabinoids. Of these compounds, CBD and THC are usually present in the highest concentrations, and are therefore the most recognized and studied.

CBD and THC levels tend to vary among different plants. Marijuana grown for recreational purposes often contains more THC than CBD.

Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high. While this makes CBD a poor choice for recreational users, it gives the chemical a significant advantage as a medicine, since health professionals prefer treatments with minimal side effects.

A 2011 review published in Current Drug Safety concludes that CBD “does not interfere with several psychomotor and psychological functions.” The authors add that several studies suggest that CBD is “well tolerated and safe” even at high doses.

Although CBD and THC act on different pathways of the body, they seem to have many of the same medical benefits. According to a 2013 review published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, studies have found CBD to possess the following medical properties:

Medical Properties of CBD:Effects:
AntiemeticReduces nausea and vomiting
AnticonvulsantSuppresses seizure activity
