  • Publication number: 20180228751
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the use of a therapeutically effective amount of cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) in the treatment of epilepsy. In one embodiment the CBDA is used in the treatment of generalised seizures, preferably tonic-clonic seizures. Preferably the CBDA used is in the form of a botanical drug substance in which the CBDA content is greater than 60%, and most preferably, it is a highly purified extract of cannabis such that the CBDA is present at greater than 95%, through 96% and 97% to most preferably, greater than 98% of the total extract (w/w) and the other components of the extract are characterised. In particular the cannabinoids tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or tetrahydrocannabinol acid (THCA) have been substantially removed. Alternatively, the CBDA may be synthetically produced.

  • Patent number: 10039724
    Abstract: The liver plays a key role in regulating total body energy homeostasis and its ability to do so is greatly affected by the occurrence of pathological conditions such as hepatosteatosis or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), which contributes to hepatic insulin resistance and potentially end-stage liver disease-related mortality. Triglyceride accumulation in hepatocytes of steatotic livers results from the incorporation of plasma free fatty acids as well as de novo fat synthesis. The present invention relates to the use of 7-hydroxy-cannabidiol (7-OH-CBD) in the treatment of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Treatment of NAFLD involves lowering the triglyceride levels in a patient's blood stream.

  • Patent number: 9962341
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) which comprises or consists essentially of cannabidiol (CBD) and one other cannabinoid selected from cannabigerol (CBG), cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) for use as a medicament, and more particularly, for use in the treatment of cancer. These combinations have shown themselves to be synergistic in treating one or more of: breast cancer; liver cancer; lung cancer; pancreatic cancer; melanoma; ovarian cancer; gastric cancer; renal cancer or bladder cancer. Two particularly favored API combinations are: cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabigerol (CBG); and cannabidiolic (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV).
