NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. George E. Anastassov, MD, DDS, MBA and Chief Executive Officer of AXIM® Biotechnologies, Inc. (OTC:AXIM) shares the hemp innovator’s vision and actions that position the Company as a cannabis industry leader in cannabinoid (i.e. THC, CBD, CBG, CBN, etc.) research and development, as explained in a recent interview by TheStockRadio.com.
In the interview, Dr. Anastassov shares AXIM® Biotech’s focus upon unique proprietary delivery mechanisms for the introduction of cannabinoids and finding solutions for conditions for which there is currently no effective treatment. These indications currently include: MS, spasticity, pain, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease/dementia, ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), psychosis, PTSD, autism, RLS (restless leg syndrome), glaucoma, IBD, IBS, and Crohn’s disease. AXIM® Biotech’s executive team and advisory board are composed of visionaries and world leaders with proven track records in all areas listed above.
An AXIM® Biotech breakthrough invention on pace to be fully registered by the EMA and FDA by the end of 2017 is the world’s first patented cannabinoid controlled-release chewing gum: MedChew Rx™. Recently featured by Reuters global news agency, MedChew Rx™ will change the way that medicine is delivered to patients worldwide. Directly compared to a sublingually delivered cannabis-based product currently on the market for multiple sclerosis (MS) in the Reuters article, the potential for MedChew Rx™ is estimated at $4.8 billion USD – for spasticity and pain associated with MS.
AXIM’s pipeline of intellectual property (IP) protected cannabinoid-based products include:
AXIM® plans to become the industry leader in cannabinoid R&D and help change the healthcare landscape by introducing their proprietary products made for both the pharmaceutical and retail consumer markets worldwide. In addition to their proprietary product lines, AXIM® has IPs related to extraction and purification of cannabinoids as well as conversion of oil-soluble (all cannabinoids are oil soluble) to water soluble forms, thus improving the bioavailability of these substances.
Dr. Anastassov states, “AXIM® is extremely fortunate to have attracted world leaders to our executive leadership team and Board of Advisors. All are contributing their energy, time and expertise to the development of AXIM’s unique cannabinoid-based solutions. AXIM® Biotech’s goal is to advance the healthcare industry and have a lasting impact on individuals’ well being.”
With what Dr. Anastassov refers to in the interview as the “stem cell” of cannabinoids that has unique biological properties – CBG – AXIM® will be introducing all-natural consumer product innovations including:
Once completed, the Company’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Almere, The Netherlands, will include manufacturing in the following product categories:
