Terpenes

The cannabis plant consists of a wide variety of chemicals and compounds. About 140 of these belong to a large class of aromatic organic hydrocarbons known as terpenes (pronounced tur-peens).

Terpenes have been found to be essential building blocks of complex plant hormones and molecules, pigments, sterols, and cannabinoids. Terpenes are responsible for the pleasant, or not so pleasant, aromas of cannabis and the physiological effects associated with them. Although not permitted in Pennsylvania, patients will often ask to smell the cannabis when selecting their medicine. The idea is that certain aromas help identify different strains and their effects. Strains with relatively high concentrations of specific terpenes are easier to identify by their smell.

For example, the smell of musk or of clove is detected when there is a high level of the terpene myrcene. A piney smell is usually indicative of a high level of the terpene pinene and a lemony smell indicates a high level of the terpene limonene. Our online menu provides the terpene content, if available, of each product which may vary by batch and grower even for the same strain.

ORGANIC REMEDIES RECEIVES OPERATIONAL APPROVAL FOR CLINICAL REGISTRANT LICENSE

To our valued patients and caregivers,

We are pleased to announce that we have converted our Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Dispensary license to a Clinical Registrant license. While this designation does not change our patient services or products, it allows us to partner with Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) in conducting long-term research in the study of therapeutic applications of medical marijuana.

Initially, this research will focus on chronic pain and opioid management, the drug’s impact on behavioral health and quality of life, and trends in usage. We believe this is an important step toward defining the medicinal value of this plant-based therapy to enrich the lives of Pennsylvanians and humanity as a whole.

As a state-approved clinical registrant, Organic Remedies is now licensed to grow and process medical marijuana and open three additional medical marijuana dispensaries. Our current medical marijuana dispensaries in Enola, Chambersburg and York have now been converted to clinical registrant dispensaries.

We are looking forward to expanding our footprint in Pennsylvania to serve more patients through our personal, high-touch, clinical approach and developing our own line of medical marijuana products. We anticipate launching our own Organic Remedies product line later this year.

As a clinical registrant, there may be an opportunity for our current patients to participate in our upcoming clinical research if they meet specific criteria established for the clinical trials. We will keep you informed of the next step in the patient selection process as more information becomes available.

We thank you for your support as we continue to work together to more fully understand medical marijuana’s therapeutic applications and improve patients’ lives.

Sincerely, Organic Remedies Leadership Team

Medical marijuana brings southcentral Pa. man more relief than any pill or treatment

ONE YEAR SINCE MEDICAL MARIJUANA SALES STARTED IN PENNSYLVANIA, PATIENTS AND ADVOCATES SAY IT HAS CHANGED LIVES AND OPENED EYES.

By Ashley Books, Chambersburg Public Opinion
Published 6:00 a.m. ET Feb. 21, 2019

Peter DeVitis spent years relying on Big Pharma and acupuncture before finding a remedy that eased his chronic pain.

After struggling for more than a decade with what he claimed was an undiagnosed case of diabetes that later caused nerve damage, the Chambersburg acupuncturist first turned to his own profession for help.

But, it didn't make any difference.

"I treat other people and they get good results, but working on me it was just getting progressively worse," he continued.
