AMMD’s Medical Products:
Ready Dose Infusions (RDI): Concentrated extract will be formulated with an approved excipient, such as glycerin or vegetable oil (typically olive oil, coconut oil, or hemp seed oil), and packaged into an oral syringe which has graduated markings. This type of formulation has proven to be very beneficial for young children, where the graduated markings on the syringe facilitate dosing titration, and allow the medication to be administered either directly (orally) or mixed into food products. The oral syringe format facilitates routine adjustment of the doses in small increments, which is critical for younger children.
Tinctures: Extract will be formulated as above, with an approved excipient such as glycerin, and filled into a glass bottle with a dropper for dosing. Like all formulations, various cannabinoid profiles and potencies can be prepared to meet specific patient needs.
Capsules/Gel-Caps: Extract will be formulated as above, with approved excipients such as raw coconut oil as the carrier, and filled into a gelatin capsule. Like all formulations, various cannabinoid profiles and potencies can be prepared to meet specific patient needs.
Tablets: Our advanced tableting technology will bring innovative relief through the use of enzymatically controlled formulations specific to certain diseases and conditions targeting specific places in the digestive tract to release medicine into the body.

Like all formulations, various cannabinoid profiles and potencies can be prepared to meet specific patient needs. This is a unique product exclusive to AMMD which we will be bringing to the Maryland marketplace.
