"CBD helps reduce pain/inflammation," said Ashish Vora, pharmacist at Medicos Pharmacy. "It also aids patients to relieve anxiety and promote better sleep."

CBD is used primarily by Medicos Pharmacy patients as a natural alternative to pain and as a sleep aid.

Manufactured by Medterra, the company's CBD oil comes from the industrial hemp that its farm harvests annually. The CBD that is extracted is fully compliant and the CO2 is captured in a liquid state and is efficiently extracted from the plant material.
