CannaQix – CBD Lozenges

About cannaQIX® 50 in medicinal cannabis

cannaQIX 50® is Creso's proprietary buccally formulated cannabidiol ("CBD") lozenge which is designed to support the management of chronic pain. Each cannaQIX 50® lozenge contains 50mg of CBD from full spectrum hemp plant extracts along with niacin, vitamins B6, B12, C, and zinc in a standardized pharma-grade formulation produced in Switzerland. cannaQIX 50® comes in packs of 30 lozenges in a proprietary delivery formulation designed for buccal absorption and to dissolve in the mouth. This method works faster and more efficiently than tablets or capsules which need to be swallowed and have a high percentage of their ingredients broken down when absorbed through the intestine and passed first through the liver. By being dissolved in the mouth, the active ingredients enter the blood stream directly, avoiding this first pass through the liver. cannaQIX 50® has been developed to Good Manufacturing Practice standards and is produced in Switzerland by Creso's partner Swiss-based food and pharma development company, Domaco, Dr. med Aufdermaur AG ("Domaco") to the highest Swiss quality with a "Swiss Made" label.
