Montreal’s herb medicine chain Tatahanderia is one of the few to offer herbal medicine on its shelves.
The company offers its own brand of Herbal Tea, a tea made from ground herbs that have been diluted with water.
It also sells the Herbal Water, which is an extract of a root from a plant known as dandelion that is used to treat arthritis.
The product is available in both the regular and herbal versions.
But in an interview with the CBC, Tatahanderie co-owner Yves Despres told CBC News that her product is not for sale in Quebec.
“I cannot say, no, we can’t offer it here,” Despres said.
“It is an experimental product, we have to go through the process.”
The company’s co-founder, Jean-Marc Dejouin, said the company’s product is a natural product, but it has a medicinal use in addition to being used to relieve pain and inflammation.
“The idea of this product is to relieve chronic pain and arthritis, and to treat inflammation,” Dejoulin said.
The herbal tea has also been used to help treat headaches and irritable bowel syndrome.
Tatahande said it has not received any government regulatory approval.
“We have received no approval from any regulatory authority,” she said.
Despres also said the product is intended for use by people with chronic illnesses who may be taking prescription drugs, which may include painkillers.
She added that the company has no plans to change its products for people with allergies or asthma.
