Purity, Quality, and Sustainability
Not all medical cannabis is created equal. At our production facility, we cultivate, process, distribute, and dispense the highest quality medical cannabis.
The quality of a product is only as good as its source material, we grow cannabis with care and handling to make sure to deliver high quality products consistently.
Through a unique extraction process and distillation system, we produce the cleanest form of THC oil—nearly and tasteless. Our cannabis oils have a level of purity that makes them easier for patients to ingest and metabolize, so they can experience real relief.
We invest in rigorous testing and quality control procedures to ensure all of our products are free from contaminants or impurities, so Georgia patients can trust what they consume.

Specifically, it refers to a pain condition where the underlying cause can’t be remedied, and the application of comprehensive pain management strategies for a minimum period of six months has either failed to provide sufficient relief or has resulted in side effects that are too severe to tolerate.
