Premium wellness brand MADGE AND MERCER Modern apothecary shakes up the cannabis industry
FOUNDER SHAUNA LEVY MEETS MARKET NEEDS FOR APPROACH AND USEFUL CANNABIS PRODUCTS FOR WOMEN.
TORONTO, August 9, 2021 / CNW / – Canadian Wellness Brand, MADGE AND MERCER, was developed to solve a problem and treat a myriad of common issues that women face, such as stress, sleepless nights and brain fog. MADGE AND MERCER offers women personalized formulations with a high content of CBD and micro-dosed THC. MADGE ET MERCER products will be available in the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) on August 10, 2021, the face serum being available in September 2021, and at select cannabis retailers immediately following each of the OCS launch dates.
Founded by Shauna Levy, the private label uses vegan and natural ingredients for its intentionally designed consumables and topicals. Every ingredient that goes into a product works hard and serves a purpose, without unnecessary excess. Multitasking women who balance everything can identify with confidence.
Shauna Levy, founder and CEO, suffered from chronic pain and anxiety and, like many women, was reluctant to use cannabis. However, once she did, she immediately found that high CBD with a micro-dose of THC was the only thing that worked for her. This life-changing and career-changing discovery led her to develop a new line of products aimed at helping women. Fueled by her own success, she set out to break the stigma of cannabis for women over 40 – a demographic whose health concerns are often overlooked. Perimenopause and menopause remain taboo, with the 3 trillion US dollars The wellness industry largely ignores the needs of women facing these hormonal changes. So far, the nascent legal cannabis industry has followed suit: Women over 40 have missed out on the wellness benefits – like stress relief – of cannabis.
MADGE AND MERCER has created a series of thoughtful, research-backed products that will fit right into any woman’s wellness regimen. “I know what it’s like to live with chronic pain while still juggling a growing number of responsibilities and demands,” says Levy, a former CEO of the design industry with a strong professional background in predicting and responding to societal changes. She started the Interior Design Show at the same time as the condo boom of the 1990s, when home design was still largely relegated to the professionals. Likewise, through her leadership at the Design Exchange, she made design accessible to a wider audience by leading exhibitions with well-known designers such as Christian Louboutin and Pharrell williams.
Now, she applies that same forward-thinking passion to the well-being of women, questioning how major cannabis producers have overlooked this demographic:
“I want to use what I have learned on my personal wellness journey to help others like me. I’m a woman who personally knows how cannabis can help – and I’m doing something about it.“
Levy has assembled a team of leading health experts and research consultants to develop reliable products that meet the specific and unique needs of women. World renowned dermatologist Dr. Sandy Skotnicki consults on all current products and Toronto doctor Dr. Marni brooks, who focuses on cannabinoid medicine, serves as a medical consultant, while the acclaimed chef Ted corrado working on edible recipes. Supporting Madge and Mercer with regulatory and product development advice based on rigorous consumer-driven scientific innovation is the key Morris and Consulting Partners team led by Dr. Shane Morris, Ph.D. in Plant Science and Policy, which has helped bring innovative, high-income cannabis products to market. And finally, contemporary yet accessible design is led by Megan Oldfield, Field studies office, known for their work for global brands and creatives.
“From providing significant relief from chronic pain to alleviating symptoms of anxiety, safe cannabis use has many health benefits.“says Dr Brooks. “MADGE AND MERCER makes it much easier for women to reap these benefits and make wellness a part of their daily lives. “
