Your guide to The Spectrum
The Spectrum is a straightforward colour-coding system that simplifies the understanding of medical cannabis. This helps healthcare professionals and patients communicate clearly about which treatment options may work best.
Each colour represents a category of products based on THC and CBD content. Depending on your needs, your healthcare professional may recommend that you take a product containing THC, CBD, or a mixture of both.
THC (Δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is one of the main cannabinoids in cannabis. It is responsible for many of the pharmacological effects of cannabis, including the psychoactive effect.
CBD (cannabidiol) is another of the major cannabinoids in cannabis. It does not cause the intoxicating, euphoric effects that can be associated with THC.
All of our medical cannabis products pass through a rigorous QA program that is regulated and inspected by government authorities. Our robust testing meets stringent criteria for product safety and reproducibility of the content of the key bioactive compounds, including THC and CBD.
We perform additional testing to provide healthcare providers and patients with extra information that can help them choose the products they require.
- Disintegration time testing for softgels to ensure they rapidly release their contents upon ingestion.
- Additional bacterial tests to ensure absence of Staphylococcus and Pseudomonas.
- Testing for over 68 pesticides, including myclobutanil.
