Innocan Pharma's Relief & Go Pain Relief Spray is a patent pending Over-The-Counter solution designed to relieve pain by combing three different mechanisms in one product: Menthol and Methyl salicylate with CBD and Magnesium.
Dr. Josef Geldwert stated, "I have been following up with patients who I have been seeing for foot and ankle related problems that have been using Relief and Go Pain Relief Spray, and their responses have been positive. I am impressed by how well patients have been doing with a non-prescriptive OTC pain relief spray."
"We are thrilled that our clinical test yielded such promising results," says Ms. Iris Bincovich, Chief Executive Officer of Innocan, "Our unique approach and deep experience is exemplified in these impressive results that I'm certain are only the beginning."
Innocan Israel, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, is a pharmaceutical tech company that focuses on the development of several drug delivery platforms containing CBD. Innocan Israel and Ramot at Tel Aviv University, are collaborating on a new, revolutionary exosome-based technology that targets both central nervous system (CNS) indications and the Covid-19 Corona Virus using CBD. CBD-loaded exosomes hold the potential to help in the recovery of infected lung cells. This product, which is expected to be administrated by inhalation, will be tested against a variety of lung infections.
Innocan Israel signed a worldwide exclusive license agreement with Yissum, the commercial arm of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, to develop a CBD drug delivery platform based on a unique-controlled release liposome to be administrated by injection. Innocan Israel plans, together with Professor Berenholtz Head of the Laboratory of Membrane and Liposome Research of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, to test the liposome platform on several potential indications. Innocan Israel is also working on a dermal product that integrates CBD with other pharmaceutical ingredients as well as the development and sale of CBD-integrated pharmaceuticals, including, but not limited to, topical treatments for the relief of psoriasis symptoms as well as the treatment of muscle pain and rheumatic pain. The founders and officers of Innocan Israel each have commercially successful track records in the pharmaceutical and technology sectors in Israel and globally.
