Heather is our 1:1 formulation; combining THC and CBD in roughly equal amounts has shown to work well together for pain-related conditions.
This medication is dispensed in an easy-to-use bottle which includes a built-in applicator that provides a pre-measured dose with each pump. This product may be used independently or in combination with other LeafLine Labs products.
Your Needs Come First, Always.
Created to provide relief for localized pain, LeafLine Labs’ Heather Topical Gel Cream is the most cannabinoid-concentrated topical available to patients in Minnesota.
This product provides anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects while eliminating the psychoactive component often experienced when taking oral, inhaled, or centrally absorbed medical cannabis formats.
Topical formulations act on cannabinoid receptors without breaching the bloodstream, which allows for efficient pain relief while minimizing side effects.
Our topical gel cream is cannabis oil in a non-greasy oil-in-water formula, that combines the absorptive properties of a gel with the moisturizing richness of a cream. Formulated to penetrate deep into the skin and muscle tissue providing localized pain relief. Combination of natural and pharmaceutical ingredients for optimized function and wellness.
Because CBD is also known for its neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties, Cobalt products are also recommended for patients with chronic pain. Patients have reported that Cobalt products can help with anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions.
Medications in the Heather product family contain equal levels of THC and CBD. Combining THC and CBD in similar amounts reduces the sedating/psychoactive effects without diminishing the therapeutic effect of the medication.
Medications in the Cobalt product family contain high levels of CBD and low levels of THC. CBD is less sedating and has minimal psychoactive effects. CBD is well known for its anti-seizure properties and thus Cobalt is recommended for patients with epilepsy and other seizure disorders.
Our Vaporization Oils are 100% cannabis oil derived from plants grown on-site in pre-packaged vaporizer cartridges (CCELL). Medication used by inhalation. Therapeutic onset within minutes of use. Contains no diluting agents (PEG, MCT, propylene glycol or glycerine).
The cannabis plant extract is formulated into products with targeted cannabinoid ratios and into multiple pharmaceutical-based dosage forms to fill your needs as a medical cannabis patient. We strive to create the best functioning products on the market and use natural and plant-derived ingredients whenever possible.
Our pharmacists commonly advise this type of medication for painful muscle spasm disorders, neuropathic pain, select cancer related pain and other conditions.
“There’s been a lot of money invested and there hasn’t been a lot of money made in this market with less than 20,000 patients annually,” said Jay Westwater, CEO of Minnesota Medical Solutions. “There are some fundamental issues with the highly regulated program that the Legislature enacted.”
“The medications are awesome — they are just way too expensive,” McClellan said. “It’s just not possible for me to … use that alone.”

‘IT JUST WAS NEVER GOING TO WORK’
Patti McArdell needs medical marijuana to ease her aches and depression, but she has to pay $400 out of what little money she has each month to get it.
Dr. Adam Locketz of Timewise Medical has certified about 2,800 patients at his clinics in Lake Elmo and Hibbing. Hundreds of those patients have used medical marijuana to wean themselves off opioids and other drugs, he said.
The costs pile up before patients even enter the program.
