• About Cannabis Science

Cannabis Science, Inc. takes advantage of its unique understanding of metabolic processes to provide innovative treatment options for unmet medical needs.

Cannabis use has an extensive history dating back thousands of years, and currently there are thousands of peer-reviewed scientific publications that document the underlying biochemical pathways that cannabinoids modulate.

At Cannabis Science, we use an inquiring approach to discover and develop novel cannabinoid-based therapies to improve patients’ lives. From the initiation, our founders have been committed to fostering and maintaining a bold, pioneering spirit fostering the true nature of innovation from which cutting edge ideas flourish and translate into evidence-based solutions.

We are dedicated to working closely with local, national and international regulatory agencies to provide access to high quality, first class cannabinoid pharmaceuticals to those critically in need of new treatments for life threatening and debilitating conditions. Cannabis Science’s clinical trial material comes from the cultivation and production facilities that are GMP compliant, surpassing high quality standard industrial and food processing requirements.

The Company works with leading experts in drug development, medicinal characterization, and clinical research to develop, produce, and commercialize novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of multiple critical ailments from cancer and infections to age-related illnesses.

Our products, broadly described, are medical cannabinoid formulations developed from one or more of the cannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis plant. Our immediate focus is to treat one of the most important diseases in the world, cancer.

CS-S/BCC1 is in preparation to enter phase I clinical trials within one to two year. This product is formulated for topical administration to be tested in phase I study, with an indication for skin cancer.

CS-TATI1 is in preclinical development with the indication for infectious disease. Consistent with data published in March by researchers at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine found that cannabinoids inhibit TAT induced migration to TAT via cannabinoid 2 receptors (CB2) which has potential applications in HIV and other infectious diseases.

In 2013, Cannabis Science submitted patent application N2010968 in Europe entitled "Composition for the Treatment of Neurobehavioral Disorders." The subject of the patent is development of cannabinoid-based formulations to treat a variety of neurobehavioral disorders, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and anxiety. The first formulation in the series of neurobehavioral disorder-targeted products is the pre-clinical development and use of the invention in food products through a licensing agreement with partner company, ENDOCAN Corporation, Inc. And Cannabis Science will move forward at the same time with pharmaceutical grade development.

 

Basis & Philosophy

Cannabis plants have extensive history of medical and agricultural use dating back thousands of years.

To date hundreds of natural constituents covering several chemical classes have been isolated and identified from the Cannabis plant.

Some key phytocannabinoids are:

  • tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
  • cannabidiol (CBD)
  • cannabigerol (CBG)
  • cannabichromene (CBC)
  • cannabinol (CBN)

These cannabinoids belong to the chemical class of terpenophenolics, of which 85 have been uniquely identified in cannabis, including the most psychoactive cannabinoid, THC. Some applications of cannabinoids have been well established in peer-reviewed literature such as for alleviating nausea and stimulating the appetite for people with AIDS and cancer. Other well-known uses include easing chronic pain and reducing muscle spasms associated with multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injuries.

The pharmacology of THC has been widely studied, while many other identified cannabinoids are still poorly characterized pharmacologically and biologically, with new activities for cannabinoids consistently being discovered.

Cannabis Science is developing novel cannabis based approaches to treat the world’s most deadly illnesses. We learn from patients about the healing properties of cannabis medicines. Our immediate focus is the development of cutting edge cancer treatments.

The Company’s future endeavors include infectious illnesses, neurobehavioral disorders including attention deficit disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder; and an application of the anti-inflammatory activities of cannabis in the management of age-related illnesses.

The endocannabinoid system possessed by all vertebrates regulates all body systems and maintains homeostasis. As such, the mechanisms of phytocannabinoids’ biological impact are multidimensional.

While concentrating on our core activities of discovering and developing treatments that will make a meaningful difference in patients’ lives, we remain mindful that we have other responsibilities to the clinicians who utilize our drugs, health authorities around the world, our shareholders, our employees, and the communities in which we live and work. We continually strive to improve our corporate responsibility standards and activities, implementing comprehensive ethical standards and undertaking patient and community progressive initiatives.

These principles reflect the mission of Cannabis Science to provide innovative therapeutics for unmet medical needs.

As the industry leader, Cannabis Science consults and leads other emerging businesses that Cannabis Science believes has a preferred business model, one which will mature into a key business model in the future. Our consulting is on the entire "seed to sale" process with a focus on bio-pharmaceutical development.

Cannabis Science is one of the longest standing companies in the cannabis business.

We feel that the correct way is to look at the industry from a bio-pharmaceutical standpoint, in a manner that allows cannabinoid-based products to modulate the endocannabinoid system to treat multiple conditions. Scientifically, we know this is the beginning of one of the greatest expansions of medicine and industry we will ever experience in our lifetime.
