Washington, DC cultivator Alternative Solutions is partnering with Israel-based Tikun Olam to grow, manufacture, and distribute Tikun-branded products at its five DC dispensaries. Upcoming products include flower, vape, topicals, and tinctures.
Tikun strains won first place in three categories at the 2017 Canadian Cannabis Awards, including Eran Almog for best high-THC flower and Avidekel, which won best high-CBD flower and high-CBD concentrate. The company’s Midnight strain placed second in the hybrid flower category.
In September, Tikun Olam and MariMed Inc. announced they have expanded their partnership beyond Delaware into Rhode Island, Maryland, Massachusetts, and Illinois. The company launched its products in adult-use markets Nevada and Washington state earlier this year.
“Alternative Solutions is thrilled to be Tikun Olam’s exclusive partner in DC. We look forward to making Tikun’s products available at all DC dispensaries, giving access to these clinically proven strains to the more than 5,600 registered MMJ patients in Washington DC.” – Matt Lawson-Baker, COO of Alternative Solutions
Tikum operates similar partnerships in Canada, Australia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. The company has been running clinical trials on its products in Israel since 2010 focused on cancer, post-traumatic stress disorder, AIDS, epilepsy, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, chronic pain, and neuropathy.
