Saskatchewan based CanniMed Therapeutics Inc. has been granted a license for medical cannabis capsules production by Health Canada, according to their press release from earlier this morning.
CanniMed is a Canadian-based biopharmaceutical company in the international medical cannabis industry, with over 15 years of experience in pharmaceutical cannabis cultivation.
They also have a state-of-the-art production process as well as a very active biotechnology research and product development program, which is to blame for the development of this capsule.
CanniMed has been working together with Health Canada for over 13 years in the effort of bringing cannabis closer to the regular folk, as well as pointing out its medical benefits.
This company was the first company ever to get a medical cannabis license from Health Canada, 13 years ago under the legal precursor to the current medicinal cannabis system.
In fact, CanniMed was the only supplier of medical cannabis over the course of those 13 years, producing regulated and safe-to-consume cannabis year in and year out without a single product recall.
CanniMed officials have said that they anticipate these capsules should be available for patient order by the end of this calendar year. It is safe to say that you can expect them on the shelves by early December.
The facilities in which CanniMed will be making these capsules are fully operational and able to produce up to 11,000 capsules per hour. This means that once the moment for product placement comes, CanniMed will immediately have a product in place.
Another important thing to note is that CanniMed capsules are completely vegan, meaning that they will be available to all those with certain dietary needs, such as vegans and vegetarians.
