TORONTO, Dec. 5, 2018 /CNW/ – HydRx Farms Ltd. (o/a Scientus Pharma) (“Scientus” or the “Company”), a biopharmaceutical company conducting research and product development for extracts and formulations related to medical cannabinoids and their derivatives, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) has issued U.S. Patent Number 10,143,706, entitled “Decarboxylated Cannabis Resins, Uses Thereof and Methods of Making Same.”
The patent provides intellectual property protection for Scientus’ decarboxylation method for extraction and activation of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (“API”) from natural cannabis plant materials.
“First mover advantage only matters if one can protect it. The granting of this patent is an important step to protect Scientus Pharma’s competitive advantage through product innovation,” said Har Grover, Chairman and CEO of Scientus. “Our method for extracting and activating cannabis API is unique in the industry and fundamental to our growth strategy. Our method provides intermediary resin that is more than 99% activated for THC and CBD, which maximizes the potency and bioavailability of the API. Our process also yields batches with consistent product profiles, enabling cannabinoid products to reach pharmaceutical-grade standards, rather than just medical-grade.”
Scientus has several additional patent applications pending that, if granted, will provide protection for its formulation and processing technologies.
