MedReleaf Corp. (TSX: LEAF) (OTCPK: MEDFF), Canada’s first and only ISO 9001 and ICH-GMP certified cannabis producer, today announced that it has received Health Canada approval for the sale of its cannabis oil softgel capsules, becoming the first licensed producer (“LP”) to bring color-coded and cannabis variety-specific softgel capsules to market and the only LP to manufacture softgel capsules from a certified ISO and GMP facility. Color coding ensures that patients will know the specific cultivar or type of oil product they are consuming.
“These products provide access to cannabis for an under-served patient community more comfortable taking their medication in a traditional capsule rather than by oil or through vapourizers,” said Robert Gora, Senior Director of Physician Outreach. The addition of softgel capsules to our product line will enhance our efforts to build physician support for medical cannabis and are more cost effective to produce, easier to swallow, and have a longer shelf-life than standard oil capsules,” added Neil Closner, CEO of MedReleaf.
