Lifestyle Delivery Systems (CSE:LDS; OTCQB:LDSYF) announced the company began the extraction and distillation of raw fresh frozen whole plant material for the purpose of conversion into medicinal cannabis products.
As quoted in the press release:
An independent third party laboratory tested the whole plant material prior to processing. The results showed no trace amounts of pesticides, fungicides, mold or infestation. The LDS Scientific team is using fresh frozen whole plant material in order to preserve the complex array of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids for inclusion into its medical cannabis products. The whole plant methodology may have additional benefits for patients if the entourage effect from combinations of plant chemicals described by some commentators results in enhanced benefits. There is no current clinical data developed in the U.S. to support these hypotheses, and the large majority of commentary is driven by anecdotal patient statements.
Brad Eckenweiler CEO of LDS stated, “The extraction and distillation of whole plant material began last week and medicinal cannabis product formulations and distillate processing is beginning today.
