NEW HOPE, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–VerdePharmHealth, the nation’s fastest growing medical cannabis group purchasing and solutions organization, today announced the signing of a partnership agreement with Element Apothec, a purpose-driven, hemp-derived phytocannabinoid wellness brand, for its proprietary portfolio of CBD+CBG+CBN products. This collaboration will bring Element Apothec’s premier wellness products to multi-specialty practices nationwide in 2021.
In addition to the partnership agreement, both companies have committed to educating healthcare providers and patients on the benefits of CBD, CBG, CBN, terpenes and other natural medicinal compounds, and how they can be used as a supplemental benefit for different ailments. The program will be designed to improve physician and patient perspectives on the use of cannabinoids for discomfort, mood support, and more.
“Beyond the well-known cannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD), Element Apothec uses state-of-the art formulation chemistry to precisely blend other minor cannabinoids into the mix, such as cannabigerol (CBG) and cannabinol (CBN). Instead of using the one-size-fits-all model, Element Apothec’s products leverage unique terpene blends and proprietary formulations for very specific-use cases. The resulting entourage effect is well-documented in the medical world and used to describe the phenomenon of chemicals’ effects becoming synergistic when paired with other chemicals,” said Dr. Ralph Boccia, Advisory Board Medical Chair for VerdePharmHealth. “The addition of Element Apothec’s products to our formulary will provide healthcare providers more alternative therapeutics for addressing specific patient needs.”
“Producing an effective cannabinoid product formulation for a targeted patient population is a closely orchestrated process, requiring a strong clinical pedigree and scientific insights to optimize the clinical improvement goals in patients. All Element Apothec products benefit from non-detectable levels of THC, high purity CBD, custom minor cannabinoid ratios and organic extraction,” said Dr. Swathi Varanasi, chief scientific officer at Element Apothec.
“Doctors around the globe are realizing the medicinal benefits of cannabinoid-infused wellness products and are recommending their use to patients without having a product in hand that they can confidently supply,” said Davina Kaonohi, co-Founder & chief executive officer at Element Apothec. “Teaming with VerdePharmHealth allows us to benefit from their unique business model to fill this void by providing practitioners with cannabinoid-infused products formulated with medical oversight and produced to the highest standards.”
“The highly synergistic partnership will accelerate Element Apothec’s commercial strategy to educate healthcare providers and patients on its customized CBD+CBG+CBN product portfolio designed specifically for our patient populations and will provide market access to VerdePharmHealth’s end-to-end technology platform, decision-support, patient engagement tools, and clinical trials,” said Nikko Khazana, chief commercial officer, VerdePharmHealth.
Element Apothec demonstrates its commitment to patient safety and doctor peace of mind through its rigorous in-house research & development, third-party lab testing & COAs, GMP manufacturing compliance, and other self-regulating actions that are critical to keeping patients safe and ensuring trust in the medical industry.
