OXNARD, Calif., May 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CURE Pharmaceutical (OTC:CURR), an innovative drug delivery and development company, today announced it received an investment of $500,000 from a strategic partner to advance its cannabinoid-based drug delivery product line. This investment comes from a pharmaceutical partner in the form of a convertible loan.
“This is an important step in building out our cannabinoid program, which targets therapies in a wide range of disease indications,” said Rob Davidson, CEO of CURE Pharmaceutical. “Our goal is to expedite our first cannabinoid-based drug delivery treatment using our patented, CUREfilm™.”
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in plants, such as cannabis (phytocannabinoids), synthesized by cells of the human body (endocannabinoids) or synthesized in a laboratory (biosynthetic cannabinoids) that interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is recognized as an important modulatory system in the function of the brain, endocrine, and immune tissues. Cannabinoids, and other molecules that interact with the endocannabinoid system, have shown promise for treating a broad array of indications, such as pain, nausea, anxiety, inflammation and other central nervous system disorders.
