Scientific Research

The scientific research in Cannabics begins with a dedicated and experienced team of agronomists who are constantly working on breeding and developing unique strains of cannabis plants, especially tailored and designed to enhance the therapeutic properties they posses. The company has developed a unique and valuable knowledge base regarding the medical capabilities of each strain, and the various indications that are most suitable for it. By carefully breeding their strains, they constantly develop new medical cannabis plants tailored to the exact needs of various patient populations.

In addition, the team of pharmacists in these working laboratories are constantly developing new formulations of medical cannabis that will suit the exact needs of their patients. By using only food-grade organic components, they have developed a line of easy-to-administer and standardized products that revolutionize the use of medical cannabis. Thus, by combining comprehensive knowledge of the medical qualities of different strains of cannabis and unique natural formulations, exact healing solutions and the natural therapeutic power of cannabis can be provided to patients of multiple illnesses. 

Cannabics laboratories have developed a wide range of solutions for standardized, reproducible and easy administration of medical cannabis products which avoid the common unhealthy and unstandardized method of smoking the raw flowers of the plant, in order to achieve the desired therapeutic effects of the active cannabinoids that are contained within it.

As it's nearly impossible to perform clinical research on marijuana in the United States since the Controlled Substances Act has upheld marijuana as one of the most "dangerous drugs" available, Cannabics' research and development laboratories are located in Israel. Marijuana is illegal in Israel but medical use has been permitted since the early 1990s for cancer patients and those with pain-related illnesses such as Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, and even post-traumatic stress disorder. Patients can smoke the drug, ingest it in liquid form, or apply it to the skin as a balm. Noted by a story in USA Today, the medical cannabis industry is expanding fueled by Israel's strong research sector in medicine and technology - and notably, by government encouragement. The story also brings into light that unlike in the United States and much of Europe, the issue inspires almost no controversy among the government and the country's leadership.
