LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / April 8, 2015 / (VRCI) Verde Science, Inc., a Pharmaceutical Research and Development Company focused on developing a portfolio of cannabinoid based prescription medicines to meet patients needs for a wide range of medical conditions, is pleased to announce the execution of a definitive Research and Development Agreement with the Institute of Chemical Technology of Mumbai, India. Under the terms of the agreement Verde Science researchers and faculty and staff of the University will cooperate on original research with the goal of identifying and developing novel pharmaceutical formulations derived from the marijuana plant for the treatment of specific medical issues.
The Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT), established in 1933 was granted “deemed University status” in 2008 and offers undergraduate, masters, and Ph.D. degree programs in various Chemical Engineering disciplines including the Technology of Pharmaceutical and Fine Chemicals. ICT awards approximately 100 Ph.D. degrees annually.
“This relationship is a significant development for Verde and ICT that will fast track the startup of our initial R&D projects in conjunction with ICT’s prestigious faculty and within ICT’s scientific infrastructure. Our initial projects will focus on the development of efficacious formulations with specific application to the treatment of seizures and pain management, administered with the use of novel delivery systems. Further, this marks our initial step toward becoming a leader in scientific research for the development of advanced formulations of cannabis-based compounds for medical use,” according to Harp Sangha, CEO of Verde Science.
Louis Silver, Verde Science Director of Investor Relations, added, “Many in the medical community have conceded the effectiveness of medical marijuana for the treatment of certain medical issues. However, virtually every credible medical organization has stated that smoking marijuana is deleterious to health. The Verde Science pharmacological model mitigates the risks inherent in the traditional use of marijuana by isolating active ingredients in the marijuana plant and delivering them in safe, medically acceptable forms.”
