Cannabis Therapeutics board of directors and upcoming new scientific advisory board intends to broaden the current operations of the Cannabis Therapeutics to include a variety of other products, solutions, laboratories and expertise, natural molecules, generic drugs, new compounds and new synthetic molecules, extraction and refinement of biomaterials, technologies and IP.

Cannabis Therapeutics, Inc will look to distinguish itself from many competing cannabinoid-focused biotechnology companies with its competent capital apportionment. While larger biotechnology companies spend millions and millions on clinical trials, Cannabis Therapeutics will look to very efficient with capital allocation in inventing & launching its Two (2) New Cannabinoid-based Pharmaceutical drugs which will be tested to treat roughly five (5) diseases with the help of its strategic partnerships.

Cannabis Therapeutics goal is to discover solutions for conditions for which there is presently no effective treatment as well as other medical disorders with the application of known and novel cannabis cannabinoid-based products. Some of the R&D that Cannabis Therapeutics will target will be treatments for the conditions and disorders of: Pain, Chronic Pain, PTSD, Breast Cancer, Brain Cancer, Anxiety, Depression, Glaucoma, Crohn’s disease, Fatty Liver Diseases, Diabetes, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Drug Addictions among other things.

ETST will be announcing its new joint venture partner in Canada by February 15, 2017, that will give Cannabis Therapeutics access to state of the art laboratory facilities to develop these World Class Cannabis Cannabinoid-based Pharmaceutical Drugs & CBD (Cannabidiol) health and wellness Nutraceuticals products to help alleviate certain conditions and disorders for people worldwide.

ETST has chosen to target diseases for which, the benefits of Cannabinoids and/or CBD (Cannabidiol) have already been demonstrated by different groups of researchers around the world. However, it is through ETST’s in vitro study with the University of Central Oklahoma and DV Biologics that results confirm the positive effectiveness of Earth Science Tech’s CBD (Canabidiol) on breast cancer, immune cell function, and human brain cells by acting as a neuroprotectant as shown in its International Application (PCT) for its Provisional Patent. Thus, as a result by mixing natural molecules and generic pharmaceutical drugs with Cannabinoids and/or CBD (Cannabidiol) we intend to increase the effectiveness of Cannabinoids and/or CBD (Cannabidiol) and improve the treatment of different diseases.

ETST’s CBD-Nutraceutical (functional food) products are designed to alleviate common symptoms and prevent illnesses. The products can improve the overall wellbeing of an individual such as; brain function, diabetes, inflammation, and immune cell functions.

ETST is targeting the above-mentioned conditions as Cannabinoids continuously proves to work against each of them at cellular level. Starting with our recent research in deciphering the molecular action of CBD, ETST has been carefully choosing natural molecules that compliment or support CBD as well as developing formulations that blend CBD with whole plant extracts and pure natural molecules that are natural antioxidants and/or flavonoids. Together these ingredients work synergistically with CBD to improve detoxification of the brain and the liver, while improving immune function and diabetes. ETST’s advanced products will deliver the Cannabinoid and/or CBD molecule at maximum efficiency and will be available to everyone to continue improving lives worldwide.

CEO of ETST and Cannabis Therapeutics, Dr. Michel Aubé states, “Our Cannabinoid-Pharmaceutical Drugs will be designed to help treat a variety of things including, but not limited to anxiety, depression, triple negative breast cancer, and fatty liver disease. Together, these diseases and disorders represent a massive market. Mental disorders are increasing worldwide. I look forward into soon discussing further details in regards to the R&D of our Cannabis Cannabinoid-Pharmaceutical Drug Pipeline. According to the World Health Organization, between 1990 and 2013 the number of people suffering from depression and/or anxiety increased by nearly 50%. Depression and anxiety disorders cost the global economy US$1 trillion each year. The substantial burden of anxiety-related disorders and the limitations of existing treatments give urgency to developing novel pharmaceutical treatments.”

CEO of ETST and Cannabis Therapeutics, Dr. Michel Aubé continues, “With my team of scientific researchers and laboratory resources in Canada, ETST and Cannabis Therapeutics now has the scientific expertise and the clinical support needed to develop these Cannabis Cannabinoid-based products for the health benefit of people worldwide. Having several additional unique, advanced CBD nutraceutical products on the market will grant ETST and Cannabis Therapeutics a competitive advantage, thus consequently solidifying its leadership position in that market. Our two planned Cannabinoid-based Pharmaceutical drugs will allow us to enter a new industry, making us one of the very few companies in this arena.

It has been shown both in vitro and in vivo that CBD can improve the efficiency of existing breast cancer chemotherapy either in an additive or synergetic manner. We already know that CBD modulates Id-1 gene expression, which is a partial explanation of the mechanism by which CBD acts on breast cancer. We will take advantage of this interaction between CBD and Id-1 expression to develop a drug against triple negative breast cancer (TNBC). There is currently no appropriate treatment for this disease. Many clinical trials with TNBC patients are comparing the effectiveness of various older and newer chemotherapy medications, used in different combinations. It will be very interesting to test the potential of CBD to improve old medicines.”

Hepatic (liver) endocannabinoid levels are similar to those in the brain and they are important in the regulation of hepatic hemodynamics, fibrogenesis, as well as lipid metabolism, and in the dysregulation of these functions in liver pathological states. CBD has been shown in vivo to be efficient in treating non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). NAFLD is the most common liver disease throughout the world. Several studies have demonstrated that oxidative stress is a major trigger of the progression of NAFLD to steato-hepatitis (non-alcoholic steato-hepatitis: NASH). NASH leads to exacerbation of inflammatory response and to liver cell dysfunction. A report, published by Allied Market Research, forecasts that the non-alcoholic steato-hepatitis market is expected to garner $1.6 billion by 2020 in North America alone. The high prevalence of Type II diabetes and obesity, which lead to NASH and NAFLD, will sustain that market’s growth. Type II diabetes shares many aspects of NAFLD, and other inflammatory processes in the adipose tissue and liver. Most non-alcoholic fatty liver disease patients are obese and at high risk of developing Type II diabetes. The number of patients living with diabetes worldwide is nearly 400 million and is expected to be more than 500 million by 2030.

[Quote from the PCT Application]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION: Cannabidiol (“CBD”) is one of at least 85 active cannabinoids identified in hemp. It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract. CBD is considered to have a wider scope of therapeutic applications than tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”). An orally-administered liquid containing CBD has recently been used to treat dravet syndrome, a rare type of epilepsy. CBD's strong anti-oxidant properties are believed to have neuroprotective and anti-ischemic effects. CBD is also believed to minimize or counteract some of the pyschotomimetic effects of THC. Due to the natural source of CBD, study of it has been limited until relatively recently and its medical benefits and effects have not been adequately studied.

U.S. Patent No. 6,630,507 titled "Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants," owned by the U.S. Department Of Health And Human Services, postulates that CBD may be an effective antiepileptic, may lower intraocular pressure in the treatment of glaucoma, demonstrates neuro-protective properties, attenuates glutamate toxicity, protects against cellular damage, protects the brain from ischemic damage, and exhibits superior antioxidant activity which can be used in the prophylaxis and treatment of oxidation associated diseases. The patent states “Oxidative associated diseases include, without limitation, free radical associated diseases, such as ischemia, ischemic reperfusion injury, inflammatory diseases, systemic lupus erythematosus, myocardial ischemia or infarction, cerebrovascular accidents (such as a thromboembolic or hemorrhagic stroke) that can lead to ischemia or an infarct in the brain, operative ischemia, traumatic hemorrhage (for example a hypovolemic stroke that can lead to CNS hypoxia or anoxia), spinal cord trauma, Down's syndrome, Crohn's disease, autoimmune diseases (e.g., rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes), cataract formation, uveitis, emphysema, gastric ulcers, oxygen toxicity, neoplasia, undesired cellular apoptosis, radiation sickness, and others. The embodiments described in U.S. Patent No. 6,630,507 are believed to be particularly beneficial in the treatment of oxidative associated diseases of the CNS, because of the ability of the cannabinoids to cross the blood brain barrier and exert their antioxidant effects in the brain. In particular embodiments of U.S. Patent No. 6,630,507, the pharmaceutical composition of the present invention is used for preventing, arresting, or treating neurological damage in Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and HIV dementia; autoimmune neurodegeneration of the type that can occur in encephalitis, and hypoxic or anoxic neuronal damage that can result from apnea, respiratory arrest or cardiac arrest, and anoxia caused by drowning, brain surgery or trauma (such as concussion or spinal cord shock)….
