Synthetic CBD Analogs (SCAs)

Led by Professor Raphael Mechoulam, who discovered tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive component in cannabis, and the endocannabinoid system.

Arthritis, Pain and Inflammation

180 Life Sciences aims to develop SCAs 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. SCAs 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 SCA family 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 development targets are arthritis and chronic and recurrent pain, while our secondary development targets are diabetes/diabetic neuropathy, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, obesity and fatty liver disease. Our work on SCAs is currently in the preclinical development stage.
