Minnesota Company Announces New Cannabis Spray

Minnesota Medical Solutions, also known as “MinnMed,” recently launched a new line of flavored oral cannabis sprays. The announcement comes as the company, which is a licensed producer of cannabis based in Minneapolis, is ramping up production to serve patients in the best way possible.

The new sprays were announced Thursday, Jan. 30. Dr. Kyle Kingsley, founder and CEO of MinnMed said the sprays offer an alternative to other oral medicines, like capsules or vapors.

“This type of medication is going to be helpful for those that can’t swallow pills and any patient with any condition will probably benefit or could benefit from these sprays,” Kingsley said. “There’s an array of different formulations.”

Kingsley said the different formulations can be used to treat different conditions including epilepsy and ulcerative colitis. Pain relief is another major reason many people use cannabis.

“Pretty much anybody that uses cannabis as medicine may want to use these sprays instead of what they’re currently using,” Kingsley said. “Any patient that uses cannabis as medicine can use these.”

MinnMed will be introducing new products frequently moving forward. Kingsley said the company recently transitioned to a new line of distillate products.

“Distillation, basically, is an extra purification step so that the oils have nothing but the best parts of the plant for the patients,” Kingsley said. “The harsh stuff has been removed. That’s pretty important. It’s been very well received. The majority of patients that are using cannabis as medicine via the vaporization route prefer the distillation method. It’s the only distillate in the State of Minnesota. So, that’s resulted in a lot of volume coming to our dispensaries.”

MinnMed has dispensaries in Minneapolis, Rochester, Bloomington, and Moorhead. Kingsley said patients must get certified to use cannabis, and if they need help, MinnMed is happy to direct people to referring physicians.

“If you have pain more days than not, you may qualify under Minnesota law for medical cannabis,” Kingsley said. “It’s much better for many patients than opioids or other treatments. So, I encourage folks to go towww.minnmed.com and we’re happy to answer any questions that they may have about the program in Minnesota and how to get help being certified.”

MinnMed was awarded its license in December of 2014 and has been producing cannabis-based products since. Kingsley said the announcements of the flavored sprays is the newest in what he said will be a steady stream in the near future.

“This is just an exciting new line of medications for folks,” Kingsley said. “Yet another way that people can use cannabis to treat their symptoms, like pain. We have a substantial new product pipeline, so you can anticipate new products likely on a monthly basis in our dispensaries. There will be a drumbeat of new products; I would say close to monthly.”

According to MinnMed’s website, Dr. Kingsley is a board-certified emergency medicine physician, serial entrepreneur, and inventor. He was inspired to launch MinnMed after encountering numerous patients who successfully used cannabis to effectively alleviate their pain and suffering.
