We stock a wide variety of pharmaceutical items, including injections, oral medications, generic medications, prescription medications, and vaccines.

Our team represents some of the top pharmaceutical manufacturers globally, such as Merck, Janssen Pfizer, and AstraZeneca, which we have partnered with and supplied to the Cayman Islands since 2003.  

We offer same-day delivery on stock items ordered in the morning and work closely with our customers to ensure personal delivery on items that are needed urgently or temperature-sensitive.

Now In The Cayman Islands

MEDICAL CANNABINOIDS

 

As of May 2017, medical cannabis is legal in the Cayman Islands. PDL has partnered with Canopy Growth, the only cannabis company to be a member of a major global stock market index, the S&P/TSX Composite index.


With its most common use of chronic pain control, cannabis' appeal is clearly safer than opiates (it is impossible to overdose on and is considered far less addictive). Cannabis can also take the place of NSAIDs such as Aleve or Advil if people can’t take them due to problems with their kidneys or ulcers.


Canopy Growth, together with PDL, commits to education and work together with local doctors offering Mainpro-M1 accredited continuing medical education programs.

Official Distributors

SPECTRUM THERAPEUTICS

 

As the official distributor of Spectrum Therapeutics in the Cayman Islands, we supply the medical field with medicinal cannabinoid oils and soft gel capsules. PDL has worked closely with the Cayman Government to import medical cannabis products to Cayman since 2019 legally. 

 

Spectrum Therapeutics is focused on developing and researching clinically-ready, whole-plant cannabis drug formulations, and dose delivery systems. Their research and development plan's foundation is to improve the quality of life and health of those suffering from acute and chronic illnesses. 


The proper formulation of cannabinoids means the opportunity to improve many common complaints and ailments, like pain, appetite stimulation, and sleep quality. Medical cannabis is also used to manage common diseases such as dementia and Alzheimer’s; and autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s disease and colitis and fibromyalgia.
 

RESOURCE CENTRE

 

CBD VS. THC

Around the world, CBD is widely available without a prescription, and its legalization is expanding' even in countries such as the US, where cannabis is still federally illegal. Similarly to the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Thailand, and many other nations have created federal frameworks to sell over the counter CBD products.

Whilst there are many contributing factors to the unique legalization of CBD in these regions, the delineating factor comes down to the source material's definition: either cannabis Sativa or hemp. 

THE THING ABOUT FASTING

Today, most of the first world population can and will eat at any time of the day, as food is readily accessible.

Depending on their lifestyles, many people will start their day with a meal within a few hours of waking up. We’ve all heard the phrase 'breakfast is the most important meal of the day'!

Nutrition aside, many believe that eating within the earlier hours of the day will provide the necessary energy needed to sustain them mentally and physically for their day's demands.

A BREAKDOWN OF DIABETES

According to the International Diabetes Association, approximately 463 million people have diabetes globally, and it is estimated that up to 14.2% of adults in the Cayman Islands have diabetes.

Diabetes remains a major public health challenge in the Caribbean, and education on the topic, and nutrition, in general, is necessary to help alleviate the stigma of this disease.

THE IMPORTANCE OF VITAMIN SUPPLEMENTS

As we know, vitamins form a vital part of our bodies' proper functioning and general good health.

With so many available sources such as diet, supplements, topical serums & sunshine, it is a challenge to know the best source for optimal health and performance.

Dietary supplements are the most controlled way to supplement micronutrient intake to reduce the risk of nutrient deficiencies.

In a world flooded with dietary supplements, how do we identify the cream of the crop?
