ALT’s proprietary, fast-acting medical cannabis product is neutral in flavor, zero-calorie, sugar-free, vegan, keto, and paleo-friendly and are designed to allow for more effective delivery in comparison to other products such as tinctures and sprays.
Medical cannabis patients will reportedly benefit from a more rapid onset time of between 5-15 minutes and more efficient absorption. ALT’s water-compatible products are made using kinetically stabilized nanoemulsions which allow cannabinoids to be effectively absorbed by the body.
ALT offers precise dosing of cannabinoids, allowing patients and clinicians to tailor treatment based on individual needs and requirements for a range of health conditions.
“We are [honored] to partner with GROW in bringing ALT’s completely differentiated brand and liquid medical cannabis technologies to the European medical markets,” said ALT CEO Robert Davis.
“After successfully launching ALT into California in December 2020, we are excited to expand internationally, our first step towards becoming a global brand. ALT’s mission is to Enhance Human Potential and we will do so, one patient at a time, through the power of our liquid cannabis platform.”
Through its new partnership with Grow Group Plc, ALT aims to have a range of EU GMP-certified medical cannabis products available to European patients through prescription by early 2022.
Grow GroupPlc CEO, Ben Langley stated: “Grow’s mission is to bring medical cannabis products to all patients who need them.
“We strive to constantly improve and innovate on our product offering. With our leading position and unique experience we are very confident that with ALT’s new mode of administration, using liquid medical cannabis, we are going to make another leap forward in providing patients with the best products and solutions for their symptom management.”

Legal marijuana sales in multiple states reached record highs in mid-2020 as coronavirus spread across the nation, according a new study. To date, sales in the four states examined in the analysis—Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington—”have increased more during the COVID-19 pandemic than in the previous two years.”
The study, authored by a group of health researchers, gathered pre-tax cannabis sales data from state regulatory agencies and compared those numbers over time. It found that even amid stay-at-home orders that dealt hard hits to other economic sectors, cannabis sales picked up speed.
“Findings show a general increase in cannabis sales following stay-at-home orders issued in AK, CO, OR, and WA in late March 2020,” the report, published last week in the International Journal of Drug Policy, says. “In all four states, those increases were greater than the percent increases observed in the preceding two years.”
Authors include researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the University of Washington’s Drug and Alcohol Institute and health and regulatory agencies in several states. While official data releases and news articles documented the spike in marijuana sales as it occurred, the new report calls itself “the first study in the academic literature to document changes in U.S. cannabis sales data during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
While the authors didn’t attempt to determine the causes behind the increased sales, they speculated the boost might be related to a number of different factors: increased cannabis use among individuals coping with stress, stay-at-home orders pushing consumers from the illicit market to licensed stores, possible price increases due to rising demand and/or purchasing of more expensive cannabis products, such as concentrates and oils.
Holistic health is frequently identified as a way of healing that looks at the complete person: body, mind, and spirit. This type of holistic healing often includes various complimentary treatments and alternative healthcare practices that can correspond with modern-day western medicine but will go beyond the singular treatment of symptoms to help more than just the body.
Several alternative healthcare practices that frequently are located within the scope of holistic health are:
Energy work (reiki)
When all of these coinciding therapies unite collectively for holistic healing, a person is much more likely to feel wellness on a deeper level that allows for a more pleasant and genuinely healthy way of living.
Believers of holistic health consider that its importance branches from its philosophy of treating the body as a whole system in order to really attain top wellness in mind, body and spirit, rather than focusing on particular symptoms and just the part of the body affected.
The Importance Of Holistic Health
In today’s fast-paced society, people are often thought to be impaired by a nutrient-deficient diet of convenience foods, and the chemicals we might be exposed to within our environment. Modern healthcare might not be able to offer much in the way of treatment for ailments caused by our modern lifestyles, and therefore so many people are turning to holistic approaches to help us cope.
THE 5 ASPECTS OF HOLISTIC HEALTH: PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, SOCIAL, SPIRITUAL, AND MENTAL
Our physical health is what most people think about when they think of health. This is mostly because it is the physical body that often shows us physical signs and symptoms of either optimal or sub-optimal health. These physical signs and symptoms are also more easy to track and measure, versus other non-physical signs and symptoms that can feel more abstract.
When it comes to supporting your physical health there are few key practices that everyone can benefit from and can make a huge difference on your overall well-being:
Sleep for 8 hours each night. This will allow your body to truly rest and repair from the day.
Eat a nutrient dense diet that is high in plant-based foods and organic/pastured animal products.
Maintain a balanced blood sugar by eating meals and snacks that contain fat, carbohydrates, and protein every 3-4 hours.
Move your body for 30 minutes each day. While every person’s exercise routine will be different, everyone can benefit from at least 30 minutes of movement each day.
Limit processed foods and hydrogenated oils which are highly inflammatory and can increase risk of chronic disease.
Our emotional health is just as important as our physical health — especially because our emotional health can affect our physical health if it is not prioritized.
Ways you can support your emotional health:
Seek out therapy when needed. Therapy is an essential part of supporting our emotional health and should be utilized whenever necessary.
Practice mindfulness and stress reduction habits that can help you better manage life’s daily stressors.
Keep a journal to record your thoughts. Use your journal to record what you are grateful for as it can help bring positivity into times of stress.
Research has shown that the happiest people on earth have deep connections with their friends, family, and community. Relationships with others can provide a deep sense of community and encouragement.
Ways that you can support your social health:
Make time for in-person connection. While technology has allowed for us to feel connected more, research has shown that virtual connection still does not provide us with the same level of happiness as in-person connection does.
Get participating in your local community. This is one of the best ways you can support your social health and improve happiness.
Set boundaries with people in your life that may increase stress or bring about toxic energy. Also do not be afraid to walk away from friendships and relationships that are negatively affecting your health.
Spiritual wellness does not necessarily mean that you need to become religious. Instead your spiritual health should focus on how you are connecting with your inner self, and the greater world around you.
Ways you can support your spiritual health:
Spend time in nature
Spend a few minutes each day meditating
The big difference between our mental and emotional health though is that while our emotional health refers mostly to our daily mood and emotions, our mental health refers to our cognitive abilities that affect how our brain functions.
Ways that you can support your mental health:
Always keep your mind active by seeking out learning opportunities and problem solving practices that challenge your brain.
Consume nutrient dense foods that are high in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids that will help reduce overall inflammation and support cognitive function.
Improve gut health with gut healing foods like bone broth and prebiotic and probiotic rich foods. Since the brain is directly connected to the gut a healthy gut is essential for a healthy mind.
Holistic Health Is Relevant to Your Finances
To achieve financial wellness, you need to focus on the big picture. There are debts to pay off, big purchases (such as a home) to save for, an exhilarating retirement to plan, children and aging parents to assistance, and beyond. Creating a holistic financial plan helps you to combine multiple financial strategies to help you live your best life while still planning for the inevitabilities of the future.
Often, like in holistic medicine, it can be helpful to find a professional who specializes in this type of planning. You want to work with someone who acts as a partner in your financial health, someone who helps you to take a step back and see the big picture.
