Choosing the right product for you

Softgels

Softgels are filled with extracted cannabis resin dissolved in coconut-derived, non-GMO, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil in a dosed form. They offer you a convenient and discreet option for your medication.

 

Available in Red, Blue, and Yellow.

Oil

Cannabis resin, containing cannabinoids and other active compounds, is extracted from cannabis flowers that have undergone thermal decarboxylation, then diluted with coconut-derived, non-GMO, medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil to make an ingestible product. This allows you to know exactly how much THC and CBD you are taking in each dose.

Dried flowers

Whole flowers from female cannabis plants are harvested, the stems and leaves are trimmed, and the flowers are dried to a specific moisture content. Milled cannabis contains the same active ingredients as dried whole flowers and is ready for use in a vapourizer.

What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are the main active ingredients in medical cannabis. They are produced by the human body, found in plants, or can be manufactured in a laboratory for use in prescription medications. THC and CBD are the two most commonly discussed cannabinoids.

THC

THC (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is responsible for many of the pharmacological effects of medical cannabis, and may be helpful to relieve pain and nausea, help with sleep disorders, and improve appetite. It can cause euphoria.

CBD

CBD (cannabidiol) may be helpful for reducing inflammation, seizures, and anxiety and to improve sleep. It is not known to cause the intoxicating, euphoric effects that THC does. In fact, it may help reduce these effects.
