  1. Several pharmaceutical drugs have been developed which either contain or have similar chemicals as those found in the cannabis plant. CBD has been explored from many angles but very few scientists are conducting a possibility to develop a safe formulation using Nanotechnology.

    We have been investigating the possibility of less dose same efficacy with low side effects.

    Our formulations are ready for clinical trials. Any collaboration is well comes.
