NEW YORK and LEAMINGTON, Ontario, Dec 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) --
NEW YORK and LEAMINGTON, Ontario, Dec. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tilray, Inc. ("Tilray") (nasdaq | tsx:TLRY), a global pioneer in cannabis research, cultivation, production, and distribution, today announced that its medical subsidiary, Aphria, has launched medical cannabis oral strips in THC and CBD-rich varieties. Powered by QuickStrip's(TM) proprietary technology, each Aphria medical strip contains a thin, edible film that contains rapidly dissolving, micronized cannabinoids that absorb directly into the bloodstream, providing patients with a fast-acting, convenient, and precise dosing experience for relief from a range of conditions.
Irwin D. Simon, Tilray's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Tilray's medical brands, Aphria, Symbios, and Tilray, are relentlessly committed to investing in patient wellness through a portfolio of new innovative product offerings, GMP-certified cultivation, and the earned trust of the medical community. The launch of the Aphria-branded medical strips is a compelling proof point in this regard, and, given the growing expansion of medical cannabis across the globe, we believe we are exceptionally well-positioned in this high-growth, high-margin market moving forward. We look forward to extending our leadership in medical cannabis and to delivering value for patients and shareholders alike."
Blair MacNeil, President at Tilray Canada, added, "At Aphria Medical, our goal is to be the trusted partner for patients by providing them with high-quality, precise, and efficacious medical cannabis treatment. Delivering on this mission means meeting patients 'where they are,' including those who are unable or reluctant to swallow medication or do not prefer the taste of cannabis oil. To address this need, Aphria has pioneered a superior, non-combustible, discreet, and easy-to-use method of consumption that utilizes micronized cannabinoids for rapid absorption and relief from a range of conditions."
The strips, which are now available throughout Canada, are available in three different cannabis ratios: THC 10, CBD 20:1, and THC:CBD 10:10 (coming soon). Each pack of Aphria oral strips comes with 30 individually wrapped strips for precise, single-dose delivery.
