LAS VEGAS, December 14, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Gb Sciences, Inc.

Gb Sciences recently completed a successful dose response study that supports Gb Sciences’ cannabinoid-based therapy for Parkinson’s disease. Dr. Andrea Small-Howard, Gb Sciences’ president and chief science officer, joins Worldwide Business with Kathy Ireland® to discuss Gb Sciences’ plant-inspired medicines including its cannabinoid-containing Parkinson’s disease medication.
"We are honored to share recent information about our first-in-class, cannabinoid-based treatment for the motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease on Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®," says Dr. Small-Howard. “Beyond that, Gb Sciences is reimagining traditional medicines by creating safe, effective, plant-inspired formulations to be sold as U.S. FDA-approved drugs. Gb Sciences is working towards the future of medicine, and we are thankful for the opportunity to share our mission on this platform.”
The cannabinoids in Gb Sciences’ Parkinson’s drugs are synthesized for Gb Sciences by Purisys, LLC, the global industry leader in ultra-high purity, pharmaceutical grade cannabinoid supply. To optimize the dosing of these active ingredients, Gb Sciences has selected Catalent Pharma’s Zydis® orally disintegrating tablets (ODT). Because greater than 50% of Parkinson’s patients have problems with swallowing, Zydis® ODT is an effective dosing solution for Gb Sciences’ formulations designed to treat Parkinson’s patients.
As early as next year, Gb Sciences plans on filing an Investigational New Drug Application to begin first-in-human clinical trials. As the second most common neurodegenerative disease, the market for Parkinson’s disease (PD) treatments is expected to grow to $12.8 billion by 2028.
