Based on evidence that cannabinoids and opioids can work in synergy to moderate pain, Veritas Pharma (CSE: VRT) (OTC: VRTHF) (FRT: 2VP) and its research arm, Cannevert Therapeutics Ltd., intend to boost actions of opioid analgesics with a specific strain of cannabis. A recent article highlights the company’s approach in developing quality strains, stating, “Veritas Pharma employs a scientific approach to support medical cannabis claims and is intent on developing and commercializing the most effective strains of cannabis for medical use. The company is concerned that, with the rapid growth of the medical cannabis industry, product quality is inconsistent and scientific proof of effectiveness is lacking. By forming strategic alliances and partnerships within the industry, the company intends to address this issue. Its approach to research and development is aimed firstly at chemically profiling the various cultivars of cannabis. As a second step, each cultivar is pharmacologically profiled to identify strains for specific diseases before clinical trials are undertaken to establish each cultivar’s utility and efficacy. By using this approach, Veritas will provide physicians and patients the scientific evidence necessary to enable them to use its products with confidence.”
