Cannabics Pharmaceuticals Announced the Launch of WanaCaps XR in Colorado

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwired - Jun 22, 2015) - Cannabics Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTC PINK: CNBX) is proud to announce that its strategic partner Wana Products has this week formally launched "WannaCaps xr," a series of extended release cannabis capsules that provide beneficial effects for up to multiple hours per dose.

Cannabics Pharmaceuticals Inc., a U.S. based Bio Tech Development Company with R&D in Israel, developed the unique proprietary technology behind the extended release formulation and licenses this technology to Wana. Cannabics chose Wana over all other licensed Colorado Medicinal Edible manufacturers due to their high quality control standards and professionalism in their business ethics.

WanaCapsxr will be offered in three different formulations: capsules with a 10:1 CBD to THC ratio (WanaCapsxr High CBD Capsules), a 10:1 THC to CBD ratio (WanaCapsxr High THC Capsules), and a balanced formulation with 1:1 THC:CBD ratio (WanaCapsxr THC/CBD Balanced Capsules). Each package of WanaCapsxr contains ten 10 mg capsules, allowing for precise dosing based on the patient's individual needs and tolerance.

"The extended release formulation enables patients to dose once or twice daily so they can get on with their lives without the constant need to be thinking about re-dosing," said Nancy Whiteman, co-owner of Wana Products. "Additionally the new capsules also address one of the major concerns of cannabis patients, which is that the initial high peak of cannabinoid activity soon after administration which can cause uncomfortable side effects such as disorientation and dizziness," Whiteman added. "Instead, with WanaCapsxr, patients experience a long-lasting, stable effect without the ups and downs."

"Cannabics researchers are making breakthroughs in the medical evolution of cannabis, and WanaCapsxr is on the leading edge of those advancements," said Dr. Eyal Ballan, Chief Scientist of Cannabics Pharmaceuticals. "Wana's new XR product will help legal medical marijuana states approach the roll out of medical cannabis in a new, controlled, stable and effective way."

Because all of Cannabics Pharmaceuticals R&D is in Israel, we can progress further and faster than possible right now in the US. In fact, within the Ministry of Health, there is a stand-alone division -- the "Israeli Medical Cannabis Agency" (IMCA). In October 2014, IMCA through the Israeli Ministry of Health granted Cannabics Pharmaceuticals an exclusive government license to research in the field of cannabinoid science.

Cannabics Pharmaceuticals is now undertaking a comprehensive clinical trial in partnership with the Oncology Department of Rambam Hospital in Haifa, Israel. Further, Cannabics Pharmaceuticals is currently in a collaborative research project with the Technion Institute on cannabinoids and cancer cell biology.

Cannabics Pharmaceuticals exclusively licenses its patented IP technology to Wanna for its production of the capsules. The innovative venture between Wana Products and Cannabics Pharmaceuticals offers an amazing window into the nexus between Biotechnology and the need for a more scientific standardized approach in states where such products are now legal.
