Sava Provider: Little Green Bee
Focused on quality medicine and the science of Cannabis
At Little Green Bee, we believe in the power of holistic herbal medicine. Using the whole plant, we create products that contain all of the plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes, and we blend these with other medicinal herbs chosen for their unique healing properties. Our Medicated Massage Oil is made with partially decarboxylated cannabis to get the analgesic, anti-Inflammatory, antioxidant and antispasmodic benefits of both tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA).
Our extraction method using high-quality ethanol leaves intact terpenes and other compounds that can be destroyed by more industrial extraction methods, and it avoids the use of toxic solvents. We use organic and locally-sourced material whenever possible.
Little Green Bee was started by a botanist and chemist, Bridget May. With a degree in botany, she worked in the pharmaceutical industry in both analytical chemistry and quality control labs. Over time, she has come to view the pharmaceutical industry’s focus on single-molecule drugs as at times short-sighted. The drugs coming out of the pharmaceutical industry have often delivered less than promised, had significant side effects, and the industry has consistently put commercial interests ahead of the needs of patients. Discovering that cannabis had real medicinal applications, she began working with the plant and has become a strong believer in the ability of cannabinoids to treat a range of ailments. Part of that belief came from her research of the growing body of scientific literature about medicinal cannabis, which has provided her with inspiration and technical guidance for extracting and blending cannabis’s active chemical compounds. She is continually amazed at the variety of therapeutic uses that cannabis, working with our body’s own endocannabinoid system, offers to us.
