First Nations

Aanni My Friends,

Welcome to our Canntab family!

We recently announced a historical agreement with First Nations Leaders to address the opiate and illicit drug crisis affecting indigenous peoples across Canada. Led by the Tabobondung family and Chief Adam Pawis of the Shawanaga First Nation , we have begun a collaborative effort to provide specific opiate alternatives and general wellness solutions for a number of health issues and ailments including pain, inflammation,anxiety, sleep and arthritis to name a few .

At the outset we respected and admired the life long effort and dedication by the Tabobondung family to contributing “ to the betterment of the Anishinaabe People”.

Quite apparent is this mantra to be consistent with Chief Pawis and many of his fellow Chiefs, council members and Health officials as we embark on our collective mission on initiatives for the betterment of your health. We strongly believe working together can continue the legacy of work for further generations and will include all four colours in the medicine wheel.

Our patented proprietary pharmaceutical grade of CBD and THC come in a solid exact dosage pill or caplet , like traditional pill formats that are easy to swallow. So many benefits over other formats including odour and taste free, vegan and gluten free, our product is made with the highest quality full spectrum plant that includes all the incipients to formulate an effective faster and sustaining therapeutic solution.

We are a Health Canada licensed producer, manufacturing in Markham Ontario with oversight of the highest standards of quality control. Our formulations include Instant Release and Timed Release for multiple or daily doses per day. We will soon introduce an innovative Oral Dissolvable Pill that will melt in seconds. All our formats have long shelf life, no leaky capsules or oils, no bad taste or odour, just like you would expect from any prescription or over the counter medications sold in Canadian pharmacies .
Think of our product as the “Tylenol” of Cannabis.

We have provided this special Web Portal for First Nations community members which will facilitate product information, easy registration and ordering, access to information about the development of strategies and solutions and what’s in the news.

We are pleased to provide a virtual on line clinic for on-line consultation and prescribing our medical cannabis with a licensed nurse practitioner who has had resident experience on a First Nation community in northern Ontario.

Indigenous Plant-Based Healing

Canada’s forests have long played an integral role in supporting the lives of Aboriginal people, meeting their physical, cultural, material, and spiritual needs. Traditional knowledge related to medicinal plants has been instrumental in the survival and wellbeing of Aboriginal people for thousands of years.

Through millennia of trial and error, indigenous peoples’ have gained substantial knowledge of plant-based medicines medicinal plant knowledge that has been transmitted from generation to generation as part of traditional Aboriginal peoples’ oral communications. Many today have a hard time understanding First Nations traditional healing and medicinal plants for natural health and better wellness. It is hard for many in the “western” world to understand the traditionally natural relationship that has developed and continues to grow today between mother earth, plant-based medicines and the Anishinaabe.

Indigenous Medicinal plants have been used in traditional health care systems since prehistoric times and are still an essential health care source for a vast majority of the population around the world. It is estimated that 70-80% of people worldwide rely on traditional plant and herbal medicines to meet their primary health care needs.

A Natural Way to Heal

Anishinaabe peoples’ believe plants have a living spirit, where the spirit of those plants stays in the medicine, where every individual is different, every remedy is different and because specific next generation alternative healthy solutions work for specific people with particular health ailments. Indigenous healing goes to the source of the problem, not to the symptoms.

Indigenous Holistic Health is a balance of four wellness elements, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. First Nation peoples’ have a long history of using indigenous or natural native plants for a wide variety of plant-based medicinal purposes. Medicinal
plants and their plant-based medicinal applications are as diverse as the indigenous peoples’ who use them.

Sometimes sickness can also be caused by an imbalance within a person.

Indigenous Healing ultimately comes from the Creator, with the lighting of smudge, the holding of the sacred eagle feather in prayer, with the added plant-based sacred medicines, sacred pipes, and everything the Anishinaabe carry in their bundles, that’s
where the strength of the medicines comes from, from those natural living plants, from Mother Earth, and the Creator combined.

We are all a part of creation, a part of everything where there is this interrelatedness of all things, of all creation, where everything has life. We are one and related to all living things, all beings, and all peoples’. It is the Anishinaabe way.

A subtle distinction between the terms ‘traditional healing’ compared to the actual use of traditionalplant-based medicines where the core of ‘traditional healing’ was said to be or attaining spiritual ‘connectedness’, in which there were many stated ways for
developing this to have a strong physical body and mind. In essence, this ‘connectedness’ could be with or without the actual use of what we would call a ‘medicine’ in Western terms, achieved instead through being in harmony with the natural environment, through fasting, prayer, and meditation, and with the use of actual ‘traditional medicines’ that often-included plant and herb-based natural medicines.

A Legacy of Wisdom

Canada is home to several hundred thousand Aboriginal peoples’ who have been using medicinal plants in traditional health care for thousands of years.

Traditional medicine among Aboriginal peoples’ is based on oral tradition transmitted through several generations. It is a cultural
phenomenon, dynamic and adaptive, like language and other cultural manifestations.

The holistic approach of Aboriginal healing systems involves spirituality and an intimate connection to Mother Earth, the natural
environment and the land that includes natural plant-based medicines. Aboriginal communities possess traditional knowledge that contributes to a broader understanding of native natural plant species, many of which have yet to be studied by “western” scientists.
