United Patients Group Launches StateWide Collective’s “Dosing by the mg, Not the Gram!” Campaign
StateWide Collectives is debuting their new line of CBD-rich medicines on the go-to source for medical cannabis information, United Patients Group.
The beauty of this product line is in its consistency
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 28, 2014
Harnessing the popularity of the patient-focused online medical cannabis resource United Patients Group, StateWide Collective is launching a new line of laboratory-tested, CBD-rich medical cannabis extracts that allow cannabis patients to blend their medication so that it contains the right quantity and blend of CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydocannabinol) to optimally treat their medical condition.
“The beauty of this product line is in its consistency,” says John Malanca, founder of United Patients Group. “Each extract contains a carefully measured dosage of THC and CBD, which empowers patients and doctors with the ability to treat medical conditions effectively every time.”
All StateWide Collective extracts utilize super critical CO2-extracted cannabis to ensure pure and clean medicine without any residual elements or the use of harmful solvents. The extract is then combined with varied formulation products. All extracts are available in 5cc, 15cc and 30cc sizes.
Trial patients are raving about the effectiveness of the products.
“These are the best results I’ve gotten from anything in my battle with depression. I am not miraculously cured, but I am feeling back to my ‘old self’ again. I’ve been: singing in the shower, joking with my wife, listening to music, engaging acquaintances in conversation, laughing, and I’m back to my true love—drawing,” one patient has reported. “I now remember what it’s like to smile and feel again.”

How Did I Get Into This Crazy Business
I have practiced Internal Medicine in the Santa Monica area for 33 years. I was trained at UCLA and remained on their clinical faculty for 17 years until politics intervened.
Despite being raised in the 60’s in Northern California, I never actually tried cannabis personally until I became ill 10 years ago with a cardiomyopathy. My own patients for whom I had written some of the very early cannabis “prescriptions” came to my home and performed a “reverse intervention”. They stayed with me for some weeks, threw away some of my “heart meds” and started me on cannabis at very high doses.
Anyway, one year after being told I would need a heart transplant, I was feeling pretty much back to normal. Soon thereafter, I healed completely and my heart function is normal today. I am not saying the cannabis did this. I know it certainly didn’t hurt and it may very well have played a role in many ways; that is why we need to study it more.
While healing, I designed and built a software system, called ChartScape, that ran the UCLA Bowyer clinic chemotherapy ordering for 9 years. It was just replaced by EPOCH. Sixteen years ago, I designed E-‐Script, the e-‐prescription software that was used by many Kaiser hospitals and recently also replaced by EPOCH.
Back to Medical Cannabis: In mid 2005, I started reading about CBD/Cannabidiol, and that the Feds had patented it in 2003. I began attending conferences and reading what was available with regard to CBD. In 2006, I began working as an Internist who was very active in cannabis research and patient care. It was a 6 year process to come to the place where we are able to reasonably control CBD strains of cannabis and have been improving a CO2 extracted CBD rich Tincture and oral preparation.
These dosable cannabis medications are critical if cannabis is to be seriously considered by the mainstream healthcare system. Smoking and edibles are just a mess and inefficient and certainly not dosable nor particularly healthy. Vaporizing does clean up the tars, but is of no help with dosing and is very short lived.
Beginning 3 years ago, with the launch of http://projectCBD.org, the hunt for CBD genetics began in earnest. I have been involved since the start and have worked with the folks at “Project CBD” and continue to work with them on a daily basis.
My primary goal from 30,000 feet is for medical cannabis, in dosable forms, to be recommended by mainstream physicians. To this end, I have been very involved with a very small group of physicians approved to give physcian CME credits.
I have been a lecturing physician to other healthcare professionals teaching them that in fact dosable and CBD based cannabis medicines are available in the community. I support their giving out the paper “recommendations” and helping their patients obtain dosable medications. Without the dosed meds, the mainstream physicians will never come onboard. With CBD being so huge, this should/could happen sooner.
As the impetus intensified for http://statewidecollective.org, a group of us launched http://certifiedcannabismedicine.com. This site is a statement as to what the medicine is all about. It lays out the framework for what in fact medication certification should be. I talk a lot about these and other issues at https://greenbridgemed.com and while you are at it, check out http://CBD4me.com.
I am not certain that any of the current storefront dispensaries actually operate anything close to what the Compassionate Use Act intended. I am yet to see a collective who only distributes to it’s members’ cannabis products grown, transported and tested all within the collective. The storefronts are scary to many and rarely offer dosable cannabis medications.
So, to enable the legal purification of the cannabis products as well as making them all dosable, setting up a collective was mandatory. There are no “business to business” operations allowed in the Medical Cannabis world. We all elected to setup http://statewidecollectiv.org, as the nonprofit, mutual benefits corporate collective. In addition, we are wrapping a StateWide Community around the collective, which will allow membership, group health insurance, super pac, cannabis cruise lines, etc etc.
All growers inside SWC grow only for patients inside SWC. Period. There are some collectives, mid-‐teens, that are now joining SWC to enable the legal “barter” of excess tincture beyond what SWC requires for it’s own members.
I envision mainstream physicians coming onboard. In fact this is rapidly happening. Three such physicians are Dr. Christine Paoletti, my office associate, Dr. Sheldon Jordan, a nationally renown neurologist, Dr. Robert Gerner, an internationally reknown psycho-pharmacologist and many others. They all are happy to use their names openly and send me patients for trials on CBD.
I am expanding GreenBridge Medical to incorporate other offices in the state. We just completed this with four offices with more on the way. My main interest in this is to really help SWC expand and become both the protection and the provider that we all need now and may need a LOT MORE in the near future.
I see our certified site, clinical medical site, collective site and medicine site, all coming together to allow hundreds of thousands of California patients grow, share and process cannabis medicines in a professional and compassionate manner.

With COVID, we have never been more aware of critical shortages of masks, ventilators, hospital beds, etc., all leading to rationing. In this BLOG, Dr Frankel, examines how rationing in our medical care is a much bigger problem than just face masks.
There are “acid” and “neutral” forms of every cannabinoid molecule. Early man knew the difference and would either just eat the cannabis raw, or heat it to convert to the neutral or “active” forms of the cannabinoids.
Cookie Bekkar is a cancer survivor and patient of Dr Frankel’s. She has created a website to share her story, what worked well for her and as a resource help inspire/educate other patients.
Early studies in both Israel and Canada show findings consistent with CBD’s effect on COVID-19’s ability to take hold in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract. If the receptors are reduced, the viral infection and pulmonary toxicity should be reduced.
CBD has recently been studied to help with Graft Versus Host Disease which can occur after an organ transplant. Dr Frankel also highlights potential dosing with whole plant cannabis and why whole plant cannabis is more beneficial to single molecule CBD.
