NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AXIM® Biotechnologies, Inc. (AXIM® Biotech) (OTC:AXIM), a world leader in cannabinoid research and development, today announced that it has donated 3,200 pieces of its hemp-derived CBD functional chewing gum CanChew® to the U.S. Pain Foundation to support the organization’s dedication in empowering caregivers and those who suffer from chronic pain.
The U.S. Pain Foundation is a non-profit organization that educates, connects, informs and empowers those living with chronic pain, while also advocating on behalf of the pain community. While AXIM® Biotech makes no claims that its nutraceutical product CanChew® gum can treat any specific condition, the positive effects of cannabidiol (CBD) for chronic pain sufferers is well established by science today.
“We are honored to support an organization that dedicates itself to helping those with chronic pain, a national epidemic that affects nearly 100 million Americans,” said George E. Anastassov, MD, DDS, MBA and Chief Executive Officer of AXIM® Biotechnologies. “Like the U.S. Pain Foundation, AXIM also believes in making an impact on individuals’ well-being, which we do through products that treat conditions for which there is currently no effective remedy.”
CanChew® is the world’s first patented controlled-release cannabinoid chewing gum containing 50 mg of hemp oil and 10 mg of cannabidiol (CBD). AXIM® Biotech holds the exclusive rights to market and distribute CanChew® Gum globally. CanChew® is a hemp CBD chewing gum with a unique oral mucosal absorbance delivery system.
