"Together with our academic research partners, we are defining cannabinoid-containing complex mixtures ("CCCM™") that target specific diseases using a natural-products approach to drug discovery," explains Dr. Small-Howard. "Our lead compounds address Parkinson's disease by leveraging natural molecular synergies among the molecules in our proprietary CCCM™ to increase the net effectiveness of these complex API relative to single compound therapies."

In recognition of GB Sciences' commitment to university research partnerships, Dr. Small-Howard has also been asked to join the Welcome Panel: Bringing Together Industry and Academia. GB Sciences has assembled an exceptional international team of cannabinoid-based researchers from Chaminade University, Michigan State University, Louisiana State University AgCenter, University of Hawai'i, University of Athens in Greece, Universidad de Sevilla in Spain, Universidad de Cadiz in Spain, and the National Research Council of Canada.
