Cannabinoids in Development
We are researching the therapeutic benefits of several rare cannabinoids and have
produced a growing library of rare cannabinoid analogs for development.
InMed is a leader in the therapeutic development of cannabinol (CBN)
InMed is the first company to advance CBN into a clinical trial. CBN is the active pharmaceutical ingredient in two of our pharmaceutical development programs – INM-755 cannabinol cream, in Phase 2 clinical development for epidermolysis bullosa, and INM-088 CBN eye drops in preclinical development for glaucoma.
CBN is one of several rare cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant at significantly lower levels relative to the more commonly THC and CBD. InMed is exploring the unique physiological effects of CBN, as well as other rare cannabinoids, and their therapeutic potential to treat disease.
A growing library of new cannabinoid analogs
InMed’s division, BayMedica, has produced an extensive library of cannabinoid new chemical entities for pharmaceutical development, aimed at targeting diverse clinical indications. Years of cannabinoid research and knowledge has led to a myriad of patentable cannabinoid analogs. Its analog patents offer broad protection through its unique molecular components, such as side-chain structures. These cannabinoid analogs are suitable for pharmaceutical development.
The therapeutic potential of rare cannabinoids
Each cannabinoid has a specific chemical structure that confers unique physiological properties in humans. Evidence demonstrates that even slight differences in the structure of these compounds can result in profound differences in biological activity, safety and potential therapeutic effect in the human body.
InMed is researching and developing rare cannabinoids as potential therapeutics for unmet medical needs. While the most prevalent cannabinoids, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), are widely used for a variety of reasons, evidence suggests there may be greater therapeutic potential in rare cannabinoids that are found in very small traces in the Cannabis plant.
