NetworkNewsWire Editorial Coverage: As the marijuana market continues its widespread growth, researchers remain merely at the threshold of exploring the manifold potential medical applications of cannabis. At present, more than 90 individual cannabinoid compounds have been discovered within the cannabis plant—each one potentially possessing crucial disease-fighting properties either on its own or combined with other compounds. Historically, however, it has been incredibly difficult to extract most of these compounds from the marijuana plant in adequate quantities and purities to be tested pharmaceutically. Overcoming this stumbling block in medical cannabis advancement, Vancouver-based biopharmaceutical company InMed Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (CSE: IN) (OTCQB: IMLFF) (IMLFF Profile) has developed a pioneering, high-yield biosynthesis process that enables the manufacture of all 90+ naturally occurring cannabinoids. This groundbreaking development could have an enormous impact in forwarding the efforts of other companies within the cannabis sector, including GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: GWPH), Zynerba Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZYNE), Axim Biotechnologies, Inc. (OTCQB: AXIM)and 22nd Century Group, Inc. (NYSE: XXII).
InMed Pharmaceuticals, Inc.’s (CSE: IN) (OTCQB: IMLFF) novel approach to cannabinoid biosynthesis represents a potentially game-changing breakthrough in drug development. Many efforts by other companies to develop synthetic cannabis derivatives have failed. In comparison with other microbial platforms, InMed’s E. coli system has proven, through substantial experimentation, to be heartier and more efficient for the manufacturing of cannabinoids.
