GB Sciences Inc (OTCMKTS:GBLX) Submits Its Patent Application For Cannabis-Based Chronic Pain Treatments

GB Sciences Inc (OTCMKTS:GBLX) announced on Wednesday that its subsidiary GBS Global Biopharma, Inc. filed a patent application for its chronic pain formulations made using cannabis extracts.

The newly filed patent covers the proprietary cannabis-based formulations that are designed using functional assay data and molecular docking simulations. A lot of research and development is currently being poured into the pursuit of new pain treatments which might help curb opioids addiction and opioid-related deaths. 

Opioids are currently used to treat chronic pain but their major disadvantage is that they are highly addictive. More than 1.7 Million Americans are affected by opioid addiction and about 50,000 people die annually from opioid-related causes such as overdose. GB Sciences’ new patent for cannabis-based chronic pain treatment presents a chance to reduce and possibly eliminate the need for opioids.

“Unlike others who are narrowly focused on using a very limited number of cannabinoids for the treatment of pain, we embraced the complexity of whole-plant cannabis extracts,” stated Dr. Andrea Small-Howard, the Chief Science Officer at GBS.

GB Sciences’ patent promises to deliver pain relief alternatives without toxicity drawbacks

Dr. Andrea also noted that GBS developed complex combinations of TRP ligands that are based on Cannabis and can desensitize numerous TRP channels at the same time. The complex compounds are also designed to perform effectively while at the same time avoiding the numbness and neural toxicity that results from capsaicin-based pain relievers applied topically.

GBS has been working on the project together with its research partners from Chaminade University. They are the first to model the cannabidiol and myrcene putative TRPV1-binding sites. Cannabidiol and Myrcene are among the active ingredients that GBS includes in the chronic pain-targeting complex mixtures.

The development team also leveraged the information that they secured from the TRPV1-binding pockets to identify the pain-relieving advantages of the compounds. GB Sciences is one of the companies that have been carrying out cannabis-related research to solve some of the common health conditions. The recently filed patent therefore represents significant progress not only for the company but also for the cannabis industry and also the health sector.

GB Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB:GBLX) Initiates A New Next Level Drug Discovery Project With The University Of Athens

GB Sciences, Inc. (OTCQB:GBLX) is continually widening its potential. The diverse cannabis company has a new project, which involves exploring different varieties of the cannabis plant. The aim is to identify a therapeutic potential of the chemical diversity in the plant. The company will team up with the Department of Pharmacognosy and Natural Products Chemistry. It is located at the National Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece.

According to the Chief Science Officer of GB Sciences, Dr. Andrea Small-Howard, the primary goal is to make better medicines. Their target is in creating medicines, which will make the most of out of the diversity of the biology of the plant.

Small-Howard adds, “In addition, we will look for disease-modifying compounds in other Cannabis genotypes using both functional assays and full metabolomic studies performed in parallel between GB Sciences and the University of Athens, respectively.”

The collaboration will benefit Greece’s emerging cannabis industry

The cannabis industry is one of the hundreds of industries, which have experienced massive expansion in the recent past. Apparently, cannabis does not have legalization in some regions while in others it has the limitation for medical use only. However, collaboration is important. It will not only benefit the medical cannabis research but it will also support Greece’s emerging cannabis industry.

The co-founder of the Athens-based cannabis consultancy Medicanna, Annie Camarioti has echoed the collaboration. She acknowledges that it will help the University of Athens in tapping into GB Sciences’ unparalleled cannabinoid expertise.

This is likely to be the most appropriate time in history to develop cannabis-based medicines

GBLX has a bigger vision; that of developing cannabinoid therapies, which target a wide range of medical conditions. However, there are other companies pursuing the creating of cannabis-based medicines through the use of certified medical and clinical strategies. It is also worth noting that there has been a great success in the commercialization of cannabis-based therapeutics across the globe.

On the other hand, many companies are also developing FDA-regulated products. This will result in an expanded recreational market, which will in return command higher prices while driving strong adoption. Meanwhile, the US has remained top of the list as one of the regions, which is so negative about cannabis-based drugs.
