More clinical trials
AXIM Biotechnologies will be carrying out more clinical research next year. QPS, a medication research company based in Groningen (Netherlands), will conduct a study on chewing gum with synthetic dronabinol (THC). This gum should, among other things, prevent nausea and vomiting (chemotherapy) or stimulate the appetite (anorexia, AIDS). The University of British Columbia in Canada will carry out clinical trials for treating drug-related psychoses with cannabis chewing gum. A double-blind, randomised, phase 2 study with 30 RLS patients will start in Israel next year.
Restless Leg Syndrome
AXIM Biotechnologies developed a chewing gum containing CBD to help patients suffering from Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS). RLS patients suffer from muscle spasms in their lower legs, knees and sometimes arms during the night. This leads to sleep disorders and the condition is also often accompanied by excruciating pain. The gum contains 1,000 milligrams of CBD and gabapentin, an anticonvulsant.
