Emerald Health launches SYNC 15 THC spray

2020-08-31 07:46 ET - News Release

Mr. Riaz Bandali reports


Emerald Health Therapeutics Inc. has launched the first product in its adult-use SYNC nano fast-acting cannabis spray product line. SYNC 15 nano THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) fast action spray allows consumers to choose ingestion over inhalation of cannabis while achieving a much more rapid, predictable onset and shorter controlled duration of effects compared with edibles and oils. The sublingual spray's effects can start in 10 to 20 minutes and last two to four hours. Emerald has made the first product shipment to Alberta and Saskatchewan, with availability for purchase by consumers expected early this week.

SYNC 15 nano THC fast action spray contains 15 milligrams per millilitre of THC and all-natural citrus flavouring and limonene terpene that provide an enjoyable flavour. The terpene has also been scientifically demonstrated to impart a mellowing (anxiolytic) yet uplifting (anti-depressive) effect. The discreet, convenient and mess-free spray bottle allows for a high degree of control over the dosage, with approximately 1.5 mg of THC per activation, as well as easy storage and portability. The nanoemulsion product also requires a lower dose to achieve cannabis effects and can be a more economical product choice. Emerald is preparing for the launch of its second product, SYNC 15 nano CBD (cannabidiol) fast action spray, containing 15 mg/ml of CBD with natural lemon flavouring and limonene terpene.

"We looked carefully at unmet needs in the cannabis marketplace and applied our product development capabilities to create a product line with multiple points of consumer appeal," said Riaz Bandali, president and chief executive officer of Emerald. "With an emphasis on science-based innovation, we created this product line using proven nanoemulsion technology and are pleased to offer the benefits of this high performing technology to the cannabis industry."

The SYNC Nano products are formulated by Emerald using a proprietary process to achieve nano-sized droplets that bypass the digestive system due to their tiny size. This result significantly multiplies bioavailability and absorption of cannabinoids in the body compared with the normal path of ingestion of cannabis edibles and oils -- and also compared with conventional emulsion approaches. Nanoemulsions are currently being used safely in the drug delivery, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food industries to improve the delivery and stability of ingredients.
