Big Pharma Will Sell Weed Gum to Medical Marijuana Patients

BY MIKE ADAMS · MON DEC 08, 2014

While medical marijuana remains illegal in the eyes of the United States government, one pharmaceutical company claims it has developed a cannabis-based chewing gum that will have the support of the Federal Drug Administration within the next few years.

Axim Biotechnologies, which has offices in New York and the Netherlands, and has already manufactured a high-CBD gum called CanChew, recently told in-PharmaTechnologist.com that they are in the process of conducting clinical trials on a new product called MedChew, a THC chewing gum, for patients suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, Irritable Bowel Disease and Crohn’s Disease.

Although the concept of marijuana-infused gum does not sound like a new discovery, Axim says their product is different because it is time released so that the distribution of http://www.hightimes.com/read/scientists-produce-thc-yeastcannabinoids to the gastrointestinal tract happens gradually over a period of around thirty minutes — a process, the company claims, is similar to the technology behind nicotine gum.
