October 20, 2023 08:48:46

IGC Pharma (NYSE American: IGC), a visionary clinical-stage pharmaceutical company, has achieved a significant milestone; the company has received notice from the European Patent Office that the patent for its proprietary “Cannabinoid Composition and Method for Treating Pain” has been granted. According to the announcement, the patent covers IGC Pharma’s pioneering method for treating pain in humans, which uses a topical cream base infused with a unique blend of cannabinoids, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Designed for transdermal absorption, the topical cream interacts with the peripheral nervous and immune systems to deliver effective pain relief without psychotropic or adverse side effects. The market for an effective pain-relief treatment is significant. In America alone, more than 56 million individuals struggle with debilitating arthritis, while 10% to 30% of total joint arthroplasty patients experience persistent pain. IGC Pharma is at the forefront of innovation, dedicated to enhancing the quality of life and well-being of those in pain.

“IGC Pharma is committed to advancing pain-relief therapies rooted in decades of rigorous scientific research,” said IGC Pharma CEO Ram Mukunda in the press release. “We aspire to redefine the standard for pain management, providing healthier alternatives to traditional medications. Our portfolio now boasts an impressive 35 patent filings in various countries, including the U.S. and Canada. We are proud to have achieved this milestone as we work to expand our roster of pain management formulations, and we will continue to innovate and develop new solutions to address this issue. I believe that our innovative approach to pain relief has the potential to disrupt the industry, providing investors with a unique chance to be part of a transformative journey.”
