San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 02, 2015 -- United Patients Group, the leading medical cannabis information and educational site, is proud to recognize Auntie Dolores for exhibiting leadership in initiatives that promote and enable responsible consumption of cannabis-infused edibles. New enhanced product labeling and lower dosages per unit aim to reduce incidents of over medicating.
Oakland California - based Auntie Dolores has stepped up efforts to create safety standards for the cannabis edibles industry in California. The early adopter of testing to ensure products do not contain unsafe levels of contaminants like heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, and mold, is now focused on helping patients avoid consuming more than their recommended dose of cannabinoids and experiencing unpleasant feelings.
“While cannabinoids are neither toxic nor chemically dangerous, certain ones can alter perceptions when consumed in large doses,” said Lauren Fraser, President of Auntie Dolores. “Our current goal is to help inexperienced consumers and low-THC-tolerant patients by offering less potent products and education.”
Auntie Dolores’s standard dosages and potency cap of 200 mg of delta-9-THC are reflected in the cannabis-infused edibles maker’s enhanced packaging, which clearly quantifies the product’s potency and conveys dosage information.
“Cannabis is a Godsend to many patients who do not respond or cannot tolerate the side-effects of pharmaceuticals, and a bad first experience can be devastating to their recovery,” said United Patients Group founder John Malanca. “It’s a pleasure to be able to depend on a professional organization like Auntie Dolores that takes patient care seriously.”
Responding to patient needs is nothing new for the cannabis-infused edibles maker. Since 2008, Auntie Dolores has created specialty lines of cannabis edibles for patients who avoid processed sugar, gluten, and products produced from animals. The company’s new line of vegan brownies, for instance, do not contain eggs or dairy products, and pass on the refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup.
