Arthritis, Pain and Inflammation

180 Life Sciences aims to develop synthetic cannabinoid analogs that are safe, non-psychoactive and formulated to improve efficacy and bioavailability – a real alternative to unregulated cannabidiol (CBD).

We believe that there are unmet needs for orally available, relatively safe anti-inflammatory drugs, especially those with analgesic properties. Synthetic cannabinoid analogs have the potential to fulfill these needs and we have started to develop novel, orally available and patentable drug candidates to treat certain diseases or conditions. Our synthetic cannabinoid program focuses on the development of synthetic pharmaceutical grade molecules close or distant analogs of non-psychoactive cannabinoids such as CBD for the treatment of inflammatory diseases and pain. Our primary synthetic cannabinoid program targets are arthritis and chronic and recurrent pain, while our secondary program targets are diabetes/diabetic neuropathy, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, obesity and fatty liver disease. Our work on synthetic cannabinoid analogs is currently in the preclinical development stage.
