TORONTO, Oct. 3, 2013 /CNW/ - MediJean is taking bold steps in favour of
building an industry-leading and new vision for what a medical
marijuana company stands for and how it should operate. The company is
putting research first, growing pharma-grade, quality-assured cannabis.
MediJean will ensure that people who need medical marijuana receive the
highest-quality medicine available on the market.
Earlier this week MediJean announced it had been approved by Health
Canada to become one of the first companies in Canada to legally be
allowed to grow medical marijuana for R&D purposes.
"We are going to focus on what's best for the people who need real
medicine," said Anton Mattadeen, Chief Strategy Officer for MediJean.
"Our R&D team will be drawing from more than 500 known strains of
cannabis to develop the highest-quality medical marijuana available.
This process, in combination with MediJean's 1,500 baseline quality
assurance checks will ensure the patient who needs medical marijuana
will receive a pharma-grade product that has gone through rigorous
testing before it is distributed."
As more Canadians require medical marijuana supplied by a licensed
producer, MediJean believes patients should look for a company that
actively conducts research and development and meets stringent quality
assurance protocols for their medicine. "It will be up to these people
to hold companies to account, but any company looking to achieve
credibility in this new industry should actively conduct R&D and ensure
they are adhering to Good Manufacturing Practices as defined in the
Food and Drug Act, as well as the guiding principles of Hazard Analysis
Critical Control Point, (HACCP)" said Mattadeen.
MediJean says quality needs to be the most important aspect for people
when they are looking for medical marijuana. They believe that many
people are completely unaware of what they are putting into their body
when they are using "street pot" as a substitute for medical cannabis.
"Every medical marijuana user should be wary of mold, bugs, carcinogens
and other harmful contaminants," said Mattadeen. "We have heard horror
stories of window cleaner and other chemicals being sprayed on
marijuana that is available on the street. Obtaining marijuana from
these sources means there's just simply no way to know the makeup of
what is being purchased." MediJean's interest is to develop the best
solutions for everybody who requires this medicine. "We believe that
people who require medical marijuana should have access to exactly what
they need, at the highest quality levels possible," said Mattadeen.
"This is why I am inviting anybody interested in learning more about
MediJean's plans for moving the industry forward to visit http://medijean.com."
MediJean is leading the rebirth of medical marijuana through a laser
focus on research, quality and patient experience by implementing best
practices here and around the world. Doctors and Nurse Practitioners
will understand and safely prescribe it within a clinical framework,
patients will have access to clean and affordable medicine, and
university research partners will help the company expand the frontiers
of medical marijuana in the years ahead.
