Yitzi: What is your background?
I saw so many of my patients suffer from oral pain and dental disease so I started researching new and innovative ways that could help those patients and then this is how Cannabite LifeLong started.
Cannabite LifeLong is one of the first startups to research and develop parts of the plant in the dental industry. Although this new application is still in its early stages, it’s designed to help relieve oral pain and heal dental diseases.
We recently registered the company in the United States but will keep our research and development center in Belgium.
