What Makes Us Different
In several markets around the world we are now licensed, (meaning legally able) to, manufacture and supply specialist products to healthcare professionals. This is in addition CBD products in markets where they are permitted.
To best understand why our operations are focused on creating specialist products from cannabis plants a little historical context helps. The cannabis plant is historically often associated with recreational use. But it also has a lesser known, and more sobering, parallel history that stretches back thousands of years. There are texts inscribed on ancient Egyptian papyrus describing how cannabis plant materials have been used as a remedy for a variety of ailments. Similar documents can be found in China, India and Greece over previous millennia and yet today, cannabis derived products are infrequently used in conventional medicine.
At Columbia Care International, our entire philosophy is patient-centred. And it is our ambition to help solve some of the world’s most challenging and currently unmet healthcare needs through cannabis-derived therapies.
We are one of the largest and most experienced operators in our specialist industry. Building from our US medicinal cannabis heritage, our product portfolio is complemented by selected wellness products. Our cannabis derived products are formulated with only carefully sourced, high-quality cannabis plants.
With more than thirty million sales transactions since 2012, we are setting the standard for professionalism, quality, care, compassion and innovation in our field. We are also working in collaboration with some of the world’s most renowned and innovative teaching hospitals and medical centres. We’re committed to providing the type of insight, transparency and quality of products that the healthcare community need and expect.
By providing a portfolio of high-quality cannabis-plant-derived products, we aim to become industry leaders in Europe and beyond – building on our US heritage and leveraging our patient-registry data to overcome the limits of available data to further develop our healthcare products.
We’ve collected longitudinal data from over 11,000,000 episodes of use and compiled it in a database: The IMPACT Registry™. This database dates back to 2013 and tracks each use including the full period of supply, noting demographics, and details of each product used in every case. With this data we provide information to healthcare professionals to help them become better able to understand outcomes of use.
This is just one of the many ways in which we ensure our specialist products work with the needs of healthcare professionals.
Fact is, there’s probably nothing more boring than Columbia Care.
But there’s probably nothing more dependable either.
