substrate, "Melts" also avoids some issues created by oral cannabis
dosing, such as delayed onset, which can lead to users taking too much
cannabis. "Melts" will allow consumers to more easily self-regulate
their dose. "Melts" will be available as both a microdose and a higher
THC dose, with varying ratios of THC, CBD and terpene profiles for
consumer needs.

for easier consumption throughout the day. MedPharm plans to begin
production of Melts in Q3 2019, sold in both a single pack and a
