Island Mist CBD

Emerald Health Therapeutics Inc. (Therapeutics) (TSX-V:EMH) (OCTQX:EMHTF) has released Island Mist, its proprietary high cannabidiol (CBD) and high CBD to THC ratio dried flower product. This Indica-dominant strain, which came out of Emerald’s broad seed bank through extensive screening and characterization, contains 15.9% CBD and just 0.4% THC, a ratio of 40:1. This product can be purchased by holders of a medical license registered with Emerald Health Botanicals (Botanicals), Therapeutics’ wholly owned subsidiary and a Licensed Producer under Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR).

Botanicals currently sells a line of six dried flower products, including four strains with THC levels ranging from 16.3% to 21.5%; a high CBD strain; and a strain containing both THC and CBD.

Botanicals now offers eight oils with varying levels of THC, THCA, CBD, and THC to CBD ratios. This product line includes the company’s recently launched CBD-25 and CBD-50 medical cannabis oils containing approximately 25 milligrams and 50 mg of CBD per milliliter. Management believes CBD-50 contains the highest amount of CBD per milliliter on the ACMPR market today. CBD-50 provides a unique option to doctors and patients seeking high CBD potency with minimal THC.

"Island Mist offers patients who prefer dried flower with significant CBD and minute amounts of THC and thus little to no psychoactive effects," said Dr. Bin Huang, President and CEO of Emerald. "We have built a balanced product line that we will add to with our continuing pursuit of distinct products to meet different needs and expectations in the ACMPR marketplace and the anticipated legal Canadian recreational market in 2018.”
