DALLAS, June 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rapid Therapeutic Science Laboratories, Inc. (OTC: RTSL) (the "Company" or “RTSL”), a fully-reporting company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, is an innovative biotech company specializing in aerosol delivery of cannabinoids to the systemic blood stream though the pulmonary route of administration. RTSL manufacturers white label products as well as its own branded metered dose inhalers (MDI) under the RxoidTM name using proprietary blends of pure cannabinoids such as CBD and/or CBG. CBD is legal for human consumption in Texas and many other states and foreign countries. RTSL is also testing CBN blends and psilocybin where legal. RTSL is unique in the MDI industry in that they do not use “full spectrum” oil or any other excipient not approved for human inhalation. RTSL’s MDI are made using FDA listed cans, valves, actuators, propellant and excipients.1 RTSL uses no tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in its products. RTSL is certified by CMDICB with respect to manufacturing of their MDI.

Everyday life involves dealing with anxiety. However, recent events have increased anxiety in the general population. For instance, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) the current coronavirus outbreak is triggering increased general anxiety disorder (GAD). https://adaa.org/finding-help/coronavirus-anxiety-helpful-resources.

Although RTSL makes no therapeutic claims about any of its proprietary blends of cannabinoids, a 2015 analysis of multiple studies concluded that cannabinoids including CBD is a promising treatment for numerous forms of anxiety, including social anxiety disorder (SAD), panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, GAD, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). (RTSL notes these studies although promising generally relied upon preclinical studies and not controlled clinical trials).

A National Center for Biotechnology Information published article stated – “Cannabinoids induce diverse responses on anxiety- and fear-related behaviors. Generally, low doses tend to induce anxiolytic-like effects, whereas high doses often cause the opposite. Inhibition of endocannabinoid degradation seems to circumvent these biphasic effects by enhancing CB1 receptor signaling in a temporarily and spatially restricted manner, thus reducing anxiety-like behaviors.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21309120. However, this article references THC which is anxiogenic and therefore not a good candidate for potential anxiety treatment modalities.

In contrast, “CBD given alone has anxiolytic properties, particularly under circumstances or in response to stimuli which normally provoke anxiety.” This makes cannabidiol (CBD) an attractive candidate for therapeutic treatment of anxiety and fear-related disorders.

Although much additional research is needed, some clinical studies with humans have been promising in reduction of anxiety. Such studies clearly need additional testing related to dosing which involves pharmacokinetic oversight and control.
