GATINEAU, QB--(Marketwired - August 11, 2015) - Quebec-based medical marijuana producer, Hydropothecary, today became the first licensed cannabis oil producer to set a price for its new oil products.

Hydropothecary will sell cannabis oil for $75 for a 60ml (2oz) jar for most oil bases. In addition, the company will provide patients with customized products, upon request, based on their preferred food oil base and required strength of the medication.

“Hydropothecary is determined to show leadership in this new and evolving industry by setting a benchmark for price and customer service,” says co-founder and CEO, Sebastien St-Louis.

About Hydropothecary's New Cannabis Oil Products:

1. How long does one 60ml jar last ?

The number of treatments is based on prescriptions, but typically, a jar lasts for 12 treatments. If a patient who consumes 0.5g of Hydropothecary's dried product wishes to substitute it with an oil, they would take a teaspoon of oil. Of course, the comparison is based on the amount of THC present in the product (capped at 30mg/ml by Health Canada), and does not take into consideration the bioavailability of the THC or other factors.

2. How does cannabis oil and dried medical marijuana compare in terms of content?

It varies. For example, one teaspoon (5ml) of oil has about the same amount of THC as 0.5g of dried Bedtime. For other equivalencies, there are slight differences. Patients are encouraged to work with their doctor to find the dose that works for them.

3. How is the oil used?

Clients can ingest the oil by consuming it by mouth on its own or by including it with foods, such as salad, baked goods or other consumables, such as drinks. It is recommended that the oil is not heated above 130 ℃ in order to preserve the active ingredients.

4. Isn’t it illegal to put cannabis oil in food made at home?

No. If you have a valid medical document, you can legally prepare food with cannabis oil for your own use.

5. Is it illegal to sell edible products like baked goods that contain cannabis oil?

Yes. It is currently illegal to sell edible products made with cannabis oil.

6. Can oil be consumed any way other than by mouth?

No. Cannabis oil is a medicated food product and should be consumed by mouth for best results.

7. Is cannabis oil safe for everyone, including children, the elderly and those with compromised or depressed immune systems?

Cannabis oil is only recommended for use by those with a valid prescription who are under the care of a medical practitioner. Although Hydropothecary products are made in a peanut-free facility, it is important to indicate if you are allergic to any base oils, such as olive oil, coconut oil or walnut oil.

8. What does cannabis oil look and taste like?

Hydropothecary's oil looks and tastes like premium oil you would purchase at your grocery store.

9. What oil base does cannabis oil come in?

Hydropothecary offers custom oils to our clients. A prescription can be custom created by combining extracted cannabis oil from our premium marijuana varieties with most any food oil, such as olive oil, coconut oil and walnut oil.

10. Where is it manufactured?

Hydropothecary manufactures cannabis oil on the Hydropothecary’s Gatineau campus in our state-of-the-art lab, under the guidance of Dr. Shane Morris.

11. How is the cannabis oil manufactured?

Hydropothecary produces cannabis oil using dried premium medical marijuana product. We extract the active compounds using a clean, green mechanical process. No solvents or additives are used. Once the process is complete, the extracted compounds are then added to your favorite food oil.

12. How is it shipped?

Hydropothecary stores its oils in 60ml (2oz) child resistant glass jars. From there, the products are shipped in the same luxurious and discreet packaging that our customers love for our line of dried products. Hydropothecary offers clients free overnight and weekend shipping, in addition to delivery during regular business hours.

13. How does Hydropothecary ensure quality assurance standards are met?

All our batches of oil are third party tested by Health Canada-approved laboratories to ensure consistent THC and CBD content and safety. We ensure the same high standards met with our dried product are also met with oil products, as well.
