Atlanta, GA, February 17, 2021 --(PR.com
)-- The Georgia Hope Act which allows access to medical cannabis, has expanded to low dose THC for seventeen approved conditions including cancer, post-traumatic stress, Autism and more.
Request for license applications has generated substantial anticipation and interest among potential licensees and Fytiko Farms Georgia, co-owned by former Atlanta Braves’ player Andruw Jones, is positioned to provide the highest quality low THC oil to Georgia residents. Fytiko’s facility will be located in Turner County, GA.
“We are really looking forward to bringing high paying jobs to Turner County, with hopes of raising the standard of living for all Georgians living in Turner County, a Tier 1 county. We are ready to get to work growing, harvesting, processing and manufacturing high quality medical low THC oil and we will be honored to help extend medical cannabis in Georgia, and to do so as Georgians on behalf of Georgia,” explains Andruw Jones, widely acclaimed former Atlanta Braves player.
Georgia’s medical marijuana law allows certain qualified persons to legally possess up to 20 fluid ounces of “low THC oil,” which is derived from the marijuana plant. It authorizes the Georgia Department of Public Health to issue a “Low THC Oil Registry Card” to qualified persons.
The benefits of low THC oil are undisputed and has been proven to kill cancer cells, act as a chronic pain & inflammation reliver, reduce & eliminates nausea and vomiting, act as an appetite stimulant, treat mental-health conditions, serve as an anti-spasmodic, provide relief for digestive health problems and more.
Fytiko Farms Georgia is a 100% Georgia owned and 50% minority owned company, has assembled the most talented cultivator (3rd generation horticulturist), international award winning extractors/processors, and laboratory that is the only FDA lab with a schedule one drug waiver to become a leader in this emerging category.
