The synergy between the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) in the capsules does not produce the ‘stoned’ effect patients feel when they smoke or vaporize medical cannabis
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 28, 2011
San Francisco Bay Area cannabis capsule company God Med is pushing the envelope of potency, with its latest batch of medical marijuana capsules (batch #2217) surpassing the 50 mg THC level. Each capsule of these medical cannabis pills contains 50.80 mg of THC and .83 mg of CBD, verified by testing from CW Analytical—an East Bay marijuana laboratory that ensures the quality and safety of medical marijuana products sold in dispensaries.
Steve Casebeer, founder of God Med, says his capsule’s potency levels are on the rise with 60 mg and 70 mg THC capsules expected in batches 2218 and 2219, respectively. These THC levels are twice as high as the level of THC in most competitors’ medical marijuana capsules.
God Med medicinal cannabis capsules are made from California Emerald Triangle outdoor-grown organic flowers, kief and non-genetically modified soy lecithin activated/decarboxylated in a near infrared (NIR) system. The vegan cannabis salad capsule’s benefits are enhanced by the addition of the soy emulsifier.
“The synergy between the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) in the capsules does not produce the ‘stoned’ effect patients feel when they smoke or vaporize medical cannabis,” said Casebeer. “The whole plant in capsule form simply promotes an increased state of well-being as the natural medication improves the patient’s health.”
Scientific research has found THC to be an effective treatment for a wide range of ailments, including Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, dystonia (a neurological movement disorder that causes sustained muscle contractions, twisting and repetitive movements or abnormal postures), fibromyalgia, gliomas (brain tumors), incontinence, sleep apnea, and Tourette’s syndrome, among others.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a cannabinoid that can increase alertness and has been shown to relieve inflammation, anxiety, nausea and convulsions in patients. Research has shown CBD can be effective at inhibiting cancer cell growth, including breast cancer and gliomas. It has also been shown to reduce symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, dystonia, and schizophrenia. CBD also decreases the rate of clearance of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) from the body, so that the effects last longer.
But it is the combination of THC and CBD, along with cannabinol (CBN) and the over 200 other medicinal compounds naturally occurring in the marijuana plant that has the greatest medical effect, with studies demonstrating effectiveness in treating chronic pain, HIV, incontinence, multiple sclerosis, pruritus (itching associated with various skin diseases), and rheumatoid arthritis.
“God Med capsules contain the whole cannabis trichome, including the full spectrum of Phytocannabinoids, Terpenoids, Flavonoids, and Phytosteral components. They provide relief for a multitude of illnesses by becoming medicine the body needs,” Casebeer explained.
God Med Cannabis Capsules are available at various locations, including San Francisco Bay Area medical marijuana dispensaries in the North Bay, South Bay and East Bay. For more information about Cannabis Capsules or any of God Med’s services, view them on the web at http://godmed.com/.
