Through the development of the Medical Cannabis CME program (see AMM), Alternate Health recognized the need for a more efficient method to deploy Medical Cannabis than the traditional smoking method. This lead Alternate Health’s clinicians to research, isolate and license better-quality delivery methods that do not include smoking or unregulated dosed edibles.
Through its wholly owned subsidiary, Alternate Rx, Alternate Health is currently investigating the commercial rights to a series of patents that include the rights to create, manufacture, and distribute dissolvable pills that include CBDs and/or THC. The advantage of dissolvable pills is the rapid absorption rate into the body (less than 3 minutes).
Alternate Rx is also investigating a complimentary delivery system for Medical Cannabis treatments that include transdermal delivery methods that transfer either CBD’s and/or THC as an active ingredient directly through the skin into the body for a controlled release into the body over a longer period of time.
Often both the dissolvable pills (quick release) and the transdermal delivery method (slow, controlled release) are used in combination in order to get maximum results from medications.
Organic, High-Quality CBD’s From Whole Hemp Plant Extracts
Alternate Rx is investigating an established nutraceutical manufacturing facility in order to create, manufacture and sell sublingual dissolvable pills with a proprietary CBD (non-THC) based dissolvable oral nutraceutical product designed for a quick release into the body.
"Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis and hemp. It is a major phytocannabinoid accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract. CBD is considered to have a wide scope of potential medical applications – due to clinical reports showing the lack of side effects, particularly a lack of psychoactivity (as is typically associated with THC), and non-interference with several psychomotor learning and psychological functions." - Wikipedia
In order to control the quality of the key CBD ingredient, Alternate Rx have identified a unique, strategic solution to produce an organic, high quality CBD’s made from whole hemp plant extracts and processed through a proprietary extraction process that is far superior to C02 extractions and does not alter or remove any of the CBD’s that are key ingredients to health and healing.
The outcome of the process is a more potent product at higher yield rates and of superior quality compared to competition.
