October 15, 2018 – Vancouver, BC – Isodiol International Inc. (CSE: ISOL) (OTCQB: ISOLF) (FSE: LB6A.F) (the “Company” or “Isodiol”) applauds the Government of the United Kingdom’s on its decision to legalize medical cannabis and allow expert doctors to have an option to prescribe cannabis-based medicines in England, Whales and Scotland. The new law will not limit the types of conditions that can be considered, and no longer will patients be required to seek approval from an expert panel.
“This is a historical change for the people of the United Kingdom,” said CEO of Isodiol, Marcos Agramont. “While this rescheduling of cannabis-based medicinal products doesn’t pave the path toward legalizing cannabis for recreational use, beginning November 1, thousands of patients with a wide range of medical conditions will now have a new option that may benefit their health.”
Isodiol’s wholly owned U.K. subsidiary, BSPG Laboratories, received approval from the MHRA in the U.K. to manufacture a pure, natural CBD molecule in April, 2018, as an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API). CBD derived from cannabis has been shown to be effective for a wide range of medical conditions including but not limited to Epilepsy, Cancer, Pain, Parkinson’s, and Fibromyalgia.
BSPG Laboratories operates a GMP-compliant facility and focuses on cannabinoids for scientific and pharmaceutical applications as well as research and clinical studies. The company also manufactures CBD-based Specials which are sold in the U.K., Brazil and various other markets. Specials are products which have been specially manufactured for the treatment of an individual patient after being ordered by a doctor.
“As governments across the globe continue to recognize the medicinal value of cannabis and the regulations change, the Company believes the acquisition of BSPG Labs will continue to be validated. BSPG Labs is positioned to supply the new demand that will be created for cannabis-based CBD medicines,” added Agramont.
