This pure CBD product is a first for Organigram, complementing the company’s existing line of medical cannabis oil products.
Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds unique to cannabis that act upon the human body’s cannabinoid receptors. There are over 80 known cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant, each with varying effects. CBD (or Cannabidiol) is the second most prevalent cannabinoid in cannabis. Research has shown that CBD provides a therapeutic or calming effect without contributing to the “high” associated with Tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC), the psychoactive compound in cannabis.
“Patients are unique and require different products that help in different ways” says Greg Engel, CEO, Organigram. “As a result, we recognize the need to continually innovate and enhance both our processes and products. Today we are proud to extend our product offering and introduce Shubie Cannabis Oil as an option for patients who will benefit from its pure CBD formulation.”
