IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - November 16, 2016) - Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTC PINK: CBIS), a U.S. company specializing in the development of cannabis-based medicines, is pleased to announce that plans to initiate a long awaited medication study for Pulmonary Patients suffering from varying failing lung functions stemming from Cancers to Bronchitis and all in between respiratory ailments. "We expect it will begin as soon as the First Lab and Extraction site is completed and we think this will take place in this month of November," stated CEO and Co-founder Raymond C. Dabney.
One of Cannabis Science's goals along with medications are the delivery systems required and deemed to be the most beneficial to the patient. While medications in pill form and/or inhaled medications serve well for maintenance purposes and long term regimens, often times much of a medication's healing benefit is lost through the delivery method. While this does not diminish the need for these maintenance type and quick relief medications, a targeted method for more serious times of the targeted disease is not only required but a necessity.
When you introduce something into your body through an IV, whether it be a certain medication, blood or, in this case, CBD/THC extract, the item goes directly to the right side of the heart, from there it is pushed within a beat or two straight to the lungs then your blood distributes the item throughout the body. However, when this process is tweaked slightly, National Institutes of Health (NIH) researchers have found that IV medications go through this same process, but get trapped when they arrive in the lungs. This may not be good news for someone who wishes to see those medications move on throughout the body, but for those looking to arrest or slow down the progression of the lung disease, it's a happy occurrence.
For sufferers of chronic lung disease, the lungs slowly function less and less efficiently and eventually stop working all together. It's the unfortunate truth that most lung diseases like COPD, interstitial lung disease and pneumoconiosis as well as lung cancers are not just chronic and progressive, but are likely terminal. With lung disease now established as the third leading cause of death in the United States, more people are looking for treatment options other than the traditional avenues of supplemental oxygen and known bronchodilators.
CBD/THC therapy by IV, while not a cure for lung disease, is one of the only methods that seeks to go directly to the problem area without potency loss to treat the disease itself. When CBD/THC is introduced directly and gets trapped in the lungs, the data suggests it goes to work immediately making healthy lung tissue work more efficiently and some studies show improvement in damaged tissue as well.
"While we here at Cannabis Science are committed to the development of cannabinoid cased medications in this relatively new modern time of medical marijuana applications for health benefits, we also realize the importance of method of delivery and the ability to target these medications to the problem areas," stated Mr. Dabney.
Cannabis Science is dedicated to being at the forefront of full service exploration of all uses of Cannabis Medications and the best delivery methods for those medications. There are years of exciting times ahead of Cannabis Science in this newly opening area of medications and the company is positioning itself and taking the necessary steps required to meet the ever growing demands and patient base that is building across our great nation.
While growth can be painfully slow at times the company urges investors and interested patients to research and educate themselves to Cannabis medications and the history that time after time has proven its medical use as a great tool in the battle against disease and pain.
