One World Cannabis

One World Cannabis Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Israel’s OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. (OTCQB: OWCP) which develops cannabinoid-based therapies targeting a variety of different indications, is offering new and alternative hope to patients diagnosed with chronic pain.

The company has already filed two provisional patent applications with the USPTO related to the development of two unique formulations that include cannabis extracts and a new delivery system to treat fibromyalgia and migraines, and has begun researching and developing new cannabis-based therapies to help alleviate the suffering of patients experiencing enduring pain.

The news comes after the FDA recently announced that there is a greater risk of heart attacks and strokes from both over-the-counter and prescription non-aspirin nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which are typically used to treat chronic pain.

The company asserts that the cannabis-based novel treatment employed by One World Cannabis could be an alternative to NSAIDs to treat long-lasting pain and fever from many different long- and short-term medical conditions. In addition, the cannabis-based treatment will provide physicians, as well as patients, with the ability to control and administrate optimal dosage, thus offering an alternative to current delivery systems that are not acceptable to scientists and physicians, such as smoking marijuana, edibles and oil extracts with no substantial dosage control.

“Chronic pain represents an emerging public health issue of massive proportions, ” said Dr. Yehuda Baruch, Director of Research and Regulatory Affairs. “In light of the latest FDA calling on NSAIDs makers, One World Cannabis believes that our cannabis-based products and treatments will be an effective and safe alternative to acute and chronic treatment of pain.”

One World Cannabis also plans to start researching the relief of migraine attack symptoms, again by using a formulation comprising, inter alia, a therapeutically effective amount of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Cannabidiol (CBD). The clinical trial, as its protocol is written nowadays, will be conducted by the company in collaboration with another Israeli leading academic medical center.

  1. Medical Marijuana should immediately be legalized in all 50 states. Ask any American Cancer patient who’s gone through Chemotherapy and used it. Ask the parents of any American kid with a seizure disorder who’s life its saved. We need the President to cut through the red tape and take personal action on this issue right now. We need congress to pass the CARERS act too. Americans are suffering and dying — needlessly!  
    For Cancer patients, for kids suffering from Seizures, and for so many others, safe, legal, access to Medical Marijuana is a matter of life and death 
     
    Please call the whitehouse comment line at (202) 456-1111 and ask that the President have Marijuana removed from Schedule 1. Call your Senators and Representative as well and ask that they pass the CARERS act immediately. 
     
    Call every day, and ask everyone you know to call every day, and to keep calling, for however long it takes, until the President, Congress or both take action. Please do everything you can to get as many people as possible to call and keep on calling. 
     
    Please do everything you can to help with this effort. 
     
    With luck the effort will go viral. 
     
    The lives of countless Americans depend on it.

  2. There’s an excellent case to be made that with the publication of the JAMA meta-analysis, the benefit of using Medical Marijuana for pain management is now “accepted science” and therefore, it is no longer possible to leave it on schedule 1. In that case, it must be immediately de-scheduled or rescheduled. Once it is moved to a schedule where it can be prescribed by Physicians, they would then have the same right they have with every other medication to prescribe it for off-label applications. I hope NORML or some other group immediately files suit on that basis — it seems like an irrefutable legal argument.
