Cannabis is the genus name given to one of the oldest families of flowering plants. Cannabis has been further distinguished into: Cannabis sativa L., Cannabis indica and Cannabis ruderalis. Cannabis sativa L. has become the most popular of the strains due to higher cannabinoid content when compared to the other strains. Cannabis sativa L. can be further classified as medical Cannabis and hemp Cannabis each with a different cannabinoid composition. Medical Cannabis is known for its high THC content while hemp Cannabis is known for its high CBD content.

Given the numerous medical benefits of THC and CBD, LiveWell plans to combine research developed at The Research and Innovation Centre to develop unique products with the medical benefits of THC and CBD.
