- Provisional patent application protects unique process yielding pharmaceutical grade, bio-identical cannabinoids
- Proprietary research allows production of synthetic cannabinoids for therapeutic use with certain diseases
- Early stage clinical trials are expected to begin in 2018 for a drug targeting a rare children’s skin disorder
Imagine having a painful disease that causes your skin to blister at the slightest minor injury. Even just scratching an itch or accidentally rubbing against a rough object could cause peeling blisters and acute suffering. Epidermolysis bullosa, a genetic connective tissue disorder that affects roughly one out of every 20,000 births in the United States, currently has no approved treatments, according to the Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Association of America.
