Research & Development
From ancient time to us
The history of medicinal cannabis goes back to ancient times within different cultures including the Chinese, Indian, Islamic and others. The Egyptians, one of the most ancient but advanced civilization, was using the therapeutic effect of this unique plant for obstetric problems, migraine, against fever and as anti-bacterial therapy. From the 19th century, cannabis was introduced for therapeutic use in Western Medicine and used for the treatment of various conditions. Its medical use changed after being demonized for a politic reason after 7 July 1971 when President Richard Nixon declared what has come to be called the “war on drugs”. Even though legislations have slowed down medical research and innovation regarding medicinal cannabis, nowadays the health benefits of cannabinoids are recognized for more than 50 conditions. Governments are now understanding its powerful potential and the latest changes of the legislation around the world are the outcome. More than 30 countries have given the green light to cannabis for a variety of treatments.
Medical conditions and potential cannabinoids treatment:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
- Chronic pain
- Crohn’s disease
- Hepatitis C
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Multiple sclerosis
- Nervous system degeneration
- Opioids addiction
- Parkinson’s disease
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Therapies for such conditions use a combination of cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBC, CBDV, THCA, CBDA, CBCA) found at different ratios in a variety of medical cannabis strains. The cannabis therapeutic effect is so extensive because cannabis receptors (CB1, CB2) are located in large number throughout the human body controlling the functionality of many indispensable system. For this reason, a natural, potent and widespread effect is observed upon cannabis use. The latest research discovered the presence of a vast number of natural compounds with a powerful therapeutic effect in cannabis biology. In cannabis extracts, there are more than 140 cannabinoids, 150 terpenes and 50 flavonoids becoming the first reference for the medical use. The appropriate use of this unique plant content associated with advanced pharmaceutical administration technologies can face the health crisis occurring nowadays and change the lives of millions of people.
What We Do?
Using the latest analytical technologies, we screen the cannabis content to obtain a complete understanding of the profile of the therapeutic components associating the synergic effect with human biology. The assessment of in vitro analyses will determine the possible preventive and curative effects of cannabis compound to tailor it to the distinctive needs of the patients. Our research will contribute to the medical knowledge necessary to obtain a safe and accurate administration of these active ingredients to create new natural therapies.
Tailor products for all the needs
Using the most advanced pharmaceutical tools, a variety of systems can be targeted to avoid side effects and to obtain an accurate and precise delivery. By enhancing the potential of the optimal cannabis extract using innovative ideas and technologies, it is possible to obtain products never seen before in the market. Using our knowledge at ResearchCan, we are developing a variety of formulations for all the needs and necessity to bring this revolutionary medicine accessible to all the people suffering from chronic and degenerative diseases.
