Whether or not you use cannabis, you probably know that the plant has medicinal properties that give it much more than recreational value. What you might not know is that the use of cannabis to treat physical ailments has been well documented for at least 5,000 years. A Chinese medical text from 2737 BCE includes the benefits of cannabis, and the Egyptian Ebers Papyrus (ca. 1550 BCE) includes a prescription for the herb to be used externally for pain.
Here at The Green Solution®, we have a deep understanding and appreciation of the outstanding benefits of medical cannabis. That’s why we’ve partnered with Dr. Laszlo L. Mechtler, the Director of the DENT Cannabis Clinic in Amherst, New York, to develop a new medical product line called MEND (Medicinal Excellence for Neurologic Disorders). Dr. Mechtler thinks of it as the Tylenol or Aleve of cannabis.
Because of New York’s very strict laws governing the cultivation and use of cannabis, Dr. Mechtler has had a difficult time conducting the necessary research to perfect his product. That’s where the partnership with TGS comes in. Colorado offers a larger patient pool and less restrictive laws, enabling the research that the product – and patients suffering from chronic pain – so deserve. And who better to assist in MEND’s development than the leaders of Colorado’s booming cannabis industry? No body better than The Green Solution®.
We look forward to the continued collaboration with Dr. Mechtler, and most importantly, to being instrumental in helping patients around the world manage their chronic pain with cannabis.
