Pharmaceutical Company to Cash in on Medical Cannibis in Utah

Prescription bag medical cannabis

Utah hospital will use cannabis extract to treat kids with epilepsy :: The Salt Lake Tribune.

A potential new prescription medication to treat seizures in children, Epiliolex, manufactured by GW Pharmaceuticals, will cost parents upwards of $15,000.00 per year. Their competition, Realm of Caring, charges less than $200.00 per month for a product not made in a laboratory with higher success rates in controlling seizures.

Like it or not, medical cannabis is here. I attended a psychopharmacology conference in DC this month and one of the lectures was on medical cannabis. He said the industry is changing so rapidly it’s impossible for anyone to stay current on the subject.
