Emblem Corp. Launches Leading Line of Cannabis Oils to Meet Growing Demand and Drive Patient Acquisition
TORONTO, Dec. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Emblem Corp. (TSXV:EMC) (EMC.WT) (“Emblem” or the “Company”), one of the country’s leading licensed producers, is pleased to announce the launch today of four cannabis oils that can now be ordered online or by phone from its award-winning customer service team.
The four oils being launched are: 20:0 THC Indica, 20:0 THC Sativa, 12:20 THC/CBD, 0:20 THC/CBD (the numbers representing the milligrams per milliliter of THC and CBD, two of the primary cannabinoids in the cannabis plant). Each are packaged with an oral syringe to ensure consistency and accuracy in measuring exactly how much oil is ingested, allowing patients to better titrate and administer each dose the exact same way.
Today is an important milestone for Emblem. With sales of cannabis oil now growing at a faster rate than dried flower in Canada, patients are clearly demonstrating a preference to move away from vapor or smoke. It also makes dosing more accessible and allows for a consistent delivery system.
Nick Dean, CEO of Emblem Corp.
Used to treat a variety of conditions and ailments, cannabis oils help with a broad spectrum of health problems and allows for consistent, standardized dosing that produces a specific effect each time.
“We are particularly excited by our CBD oils,” says Dean. “CBD is not psychoactive, and a recent report from the World Health Organization suggests CBD to be an effective treatment for epileptic seizures, amongst a number of other medical conditions. Physicians are increasingly turning to CBD-rich strains for their patients.”
Emblem Corp. is already a leader on the medical side with its patient and physician vertical known as GrowWise Health. With 14 education centres in Canada and plans to expand in the coming months, the GrowWise brand is already synonymous with patient and physician education.
“Patients and healthcare professionals will turn to Emblem as a reliable source for medication. The availability of Emblem oils will help to drive our medical strategy and allow us to onboard patients at a more rapid pace and see strong top-line growth. We continue to invest in pharmaceutical research and development, and will be bringing more medically-focused products to market in the coming year,” says Dean.
Patients registered with Emblem will be entitled to 10% off their first oil purchase.
Emblem Corp. is a fully integrated licensed producer and distributor of medical cannabis and cannabis derivatives in Canada under the ACMPR (Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations). Led by a team of cannabis experts and former health care and pharma executives, it has three distinct verticals – cannabis production, patient education centers, and pharmaceutical dosage form development.
