New product line provides patients with a familiar medicine format and precise dosing
MINNEAPOLIS – April 9, 2020 – Minnesota Medical Solutions (“MinnMed” or “the Company”), a physician-founded, science-focused medical cannabis company in the State of Minnesota, today announced that the Company has launched a new line of dosable medical cannabis tablets. MinnMed is the only medical cannabis company in Minnesota offering the familiar format of tablets to licensed patients.
MinnMed’s tablets are water soluble and have a faster absorption rate compared to other ingestible formats of medical cannabis. Tablets may be a desirable option for medical cannabis patients who prefer a traditional medication format that can be easily divided into smaller doses. The tablets provide numerous other benefits to patients including being longer acting and more discreet, while providing additional conveniences such as not requiring refrigeration.
“As a physician-led and patient-focused medical cannabis company, we strive to make medical cannabis more familiar and more accessible for our patients,” said MinnMed Founder, Kyle Kingsley, M.D. “Tablets offer another option for Minnesotans to access this vital medication while providing our patients another safe consumption method alternative to vaping.”
The new tablets contain 5 – 10 mgs of active cannabinoids and are now available in five of MinnMed’s most popular formulations – Red, Extra Strength Red, Yellow, Green, and Blue! The launch of MinnMed’s tablets comes following other recent announcements by MinnMed to make medical cannabis more accessible and affordable for patients. MinnMed recently announced the launch of the Company’s eCommerce shop and substantial price cuts on many medical cannabis products by as much as 30% for all patients.
In addition, MinnMed is focused on assisting new patients with access to the medical cannabis program by providing a 50% discount for all first-time patients on purchases up to $200 and other discounts for existing patients.
