Israeli And American Companies Create Marijuana Inhaler For Sleep

Insomnia sufferers often swear by a puff of marijuana before bed. Now an Israeli company is helping to medicalize the practice with an inhaler that delivers a stable and controlled dose of a cannabis formula that lasts through the night.

i.can.sleep is a joint venture of iCAN:Israel-Cannabis, a group building out the medical marijuana industry in Israel and CannRx, a U.S. corporation that develops medical applications for cannabis.

The joint venture was announced at CannaTech, a conference on medical marijuana happening in Tel Aviv from March 20-22.

“You take a puff or two depending on the dosage and in ten minutes you will be drowsy enough to sleep,” said William Levine of CannRx.

Israel is poised to give final approval to medical marijuana exports in the coming months. According to Kaye, Israel could reap $1 billion in the next two years.
