“RDT is pleased to be partnering with Chemesis to provide California’s consumers with a delivery method they can count on that begins the move away from inhalation for dosing therapeutic products,” explains Mark Upsdell, CEO of RDT.  “Chemesis has developed strategies, partnerships, quality oil production, and distribution channels that will allow QuickStrip to expand rapidly into the California market.
