Cardiol Therapeutics Cortalex 100 CBD Oil
Cardiol Therapeutics Cortalex 100 CBD Oil
Cortalex™ Extra-Strength 100 CBD Oil is the first pharmaceutically produced cannabidiol (CBD) specifically formulated for people who should not take tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Cortalex™ is suitable for patients seeking a THC-free* treatment option that avoids the side-effects sometimes associated with THC-containing medications.
Similar to other prescription medications, dosing of CBD should be done under the careful supervision of your primary healthcare provider. Shoppers supports the Health Canada-recommended “start low and go slow” approach. Effects may vary from individual to individual.
Each bottle comes with its own oral syringe marked with dose amounts in millilitres (ml). Squeeze the measured amount under your tongue and let the oil rest there for 30 – 60 seconds before swallowing.
There are a number of claimed benefits of CBD including the alleviation of anxiety, PTSD, sleep disorders, chronic pain, and seizure syndromes associated with certain pediatric epilepsies. For a more comprehensive list of potential uses for CBD, please view Health Canada’s Information for Healthcare Professionals guide.
Cortalex™ extra-strength 100 CBD oil is produced in a Health Canada-approved pharmaceutical facility that is fully cGMP compliant.
