Licensed Canadian cannabis cultivation company Emblem Corp. (TSX.V: EMC) (OTC: EMMBF) recently entered into a collaboration and licensing agreement with Canntab Therapeutics Limited to collaborate on the preclinical formulation, clinical development, regulatory approval, manufacturing and commercialization of Canntab’s patent-pending oral sustained release cannabinoid formulation. The agreement grants Emblem the exclusive right to Canntab’s patents and expertise in Canada to develop, commercialize, use, sell and offer—but not import or export—the product, which will be sold under the Emblem brand. An article discussing this reads: “For pharmaceutical ingredients that are typically short-acting, like cannabinoids, sustained release formulations enable dosage schedules that are more convenient, offer longer action duration and are better accepted by health care professionals and patients. The patent-pending extended release formulation being collaboratively developed by Emblem and Canntab will enable medical professionals, for the first time, to establish proper dosages for patients and will, for the patients, make it easier to take medical cannabis. Emblem believes the development of advanced dosage forms, and the pharmacokinetic and clinical research associated with this development, will effectively advance cannabinoid therapy. The company also anticipates that introducing sustained release cannabinoid formulations that are easily titratable will significantly increase the market for cannabinoid-based medications—especially for the treatment of conditions like chronic neuropathic pain.”
