IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 6, 2016) - Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTC PINK: CBIS), a U.S. company specializing in the development of cannabis-based medicines, is excited to announce they have received their initial batch of nebulizers for their cannabinoid-based MDI rescue inhalers, which targets asthma/COPD for legal self-medicating patients. Previous third-party studies using cannabis-based treatments for asthma/COPD have shown positive results with fewer side effects, and that has spurred the company to move to market as quickly as possible to capitalize on the infancy of the market.
In addition to select dispensaries in California, the company will be testing the initial batch out with 20-25 legal self-medicating candidates suffering from asthma/COPD and other respiratory ailments in the State of California. The observational study will allow the company to confirm observation efficacy, develop additional marketing materials, and improve product design while building a wider spread release.
"We are upgrading the website now to accept patient data and tracking. We are excited to start with patients in the Los Angeles area who have previously had limited access to cannabis-based asthma/COPD targeting treatments," said Director, President, CEO & Co-Founder, Raymond C. Dabney, "We believe patients in legal states will benefit greatly from the addition of an effective, alternative treatment with seemingly less prevalent side effects."
