AXIM Biotech Begins PK/PD Studies With CanChew Plus CBD Gum for IBS Symptoms in Suffering Patients

New York, New York, UNITED STATES

NEW YORK, Nov. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AXIM® Biotechnologies, Inc. (AXIM® Biotech) (OTC:AXIM), a world leader in cannabinoid research and development, today announced that it has begun pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) studies with its CanChew Plus® Gum, the first CBD hemp oil chewing gum, to determine a reduction of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms in patients.

The PK/PD studies are being conducted at the Wageningen University in the Netherlands, the only university in the Country to focus specifically on the theme ‘healthy food and living environment.’  The single dose study on 10 mg of cannabidiol (CBD) and 30 mg of CBD will determine the concentration of CBD in the blood after chewing one CanChew Plus® Gum for thirty minutes, which will determine the administered patient dose for Phase II trials.  

“This is another step forward for AXIM in using cannabinoid-based drugs to find answers for health conditions with currently no known sustainable answers,” states George E. Anastassov, MD, DDS, MBA and Chief Executive Officer of AXIM® Biotech. “IBS is the most common functional gastrointestinal disorder in the world, and it currently has no cure. Our goal is to help people suffering from not only IBS, but a range of disorders that affect people’s gastro-intestinal disorders with no effective remedies such as IBS, IBD and Crohn’ disease.”  

The founders and managers of AXIM® Biotech are the inventors of CanChew® which is the world’s first patented controlled-release cannabinoid chewing gum containing 10 mg of CBD procured from the industrial hemp plant.  AXIM Biotech holds the exclusive rights to market and distribute CanChew® Gum and CanChew Plus® globally.

CanChew® is a unique hemp-derived CBD functional chewing gum that is distinctly different than any other brands of gum on the market. Features listed on the CanChew® website include:

  • Non-habit forming
  • No prescription needed
  • Available in all 50 states
  • Great-tasting mint gum has no artificial sweeteners or preservatives
  • Non-GMO, gluten free, vegan and kosher

CanChew Plus® is a vastly improved delivery system than the alpha version of CanChewÒ Gum.  It is produced by a leading European functional gum manufacturer.

Featured in Healthy Living Magazine, CanChew® was also recognized by the HealthyLivinG Foundation and honored with its Triple Leaf Award.
