Helping Medical Marijuana Patients Get the Smokeless Option They’ve Been Asking For; The Capsule Consulting Group LLC is teaming with well-known industry expert, Cheryl Shuman to develop, broadcast and coordinate the program
NEW YORK, Dec. 22, 2015 /Weed Wire/ — The Capsule Consulting Group (TCCG), the full-service capsule manufacturer and consultancy serving the cannabis industry, and Cheryl Shuman, a specialist in lifestyle, entertainment and consumer marketing, are excited to announce that they will be working together on a new joint project. As the holidays rapidly approach us, TCCG wants to announce the inaugural Annual Holiday Capsule Giveaway. With the goal of ensuring that medical marijuana patients have access to premium capsules, the most common method of medication consumption, TCCG will be donating up to 2000 empty flavored capsules to organizations who service patients who can benefit from medical marijuana in capsule form.
“We realize,” states Jonathan Gilinski, TCCG’s CEO, “that many patients have a difficult time affording the medicine they need. In addition, we know that for many patients smoking cannabis is inadvisable or simply not possible. We want to make it easier for these people by providing everything they need to encapsulate their medication - except, of course, the cannabis itself.”
TCCG offers a full range of premium capsule products, specifically engineered for the cannabis industry. Pharm Labs, the first recipient of donated capsules from this program, recognizes that TCCG’s unique flavored capsules can be especially beneficial for increasing patient compliance with medical marijuana prescriptions.
“Pharm Labs is a San Diego, California-based organization that provides lab testing and analytical services for medical marijuana products,” explains Greg Magdoff, Founder. “We do a lot of testing for sick children with epilepsy. We utilize CBD oils and extractions, and often put them in capsule form. We felt that TCCG’s bubble gum flavored capsules would ease the pain of dosing kids who have this challenging disease.”
Without the use of capsules, medical marijuana is typically administered to children in the form of an oil that is placed under the tongue. Unsurprisingly, children often object to the oil’s bitter taste. Incorporating the oil into food products can also be problematic, as the intrinsic flavor of the food can be altered creating a negative association for the child. TCCG understands the value and importance of providing medication in a format that patients readily accept: capsules. In many cases, flavored capsules are particularly ideal for completing this cycle of getting medication into the hands of patients in need.
In this venture, TCCG and Cheryl Shuman have teamed up to work with some of the most respected names in the legalized cannabis industry. Known as the Martha Stewart of Cannabis, and as the Executive Director for Moms for Marijuana with over a million followers, Shuman states that “Hundreds of families will benefit from this program. TCCG is setting an excellent example of social corporate responsibility giving back to those in need.”
Business Organizations that can benefit from this new capsule donation program should contact Cheryl Shuman directly [email protected]. Patients interested in applying as a recipient of the program, call directly at 1-855-803-6896 for more details and to apply for the TCCG Annual Holiday Capsule Giveaway.
