|VANCOUVER, Jan. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ – Phivida Holdings Inc. (“C.VIDA” or “OTCMKTS.PHVAF”) announces the global launch of the latest CBD product innovation; Nano-CBD™ Iced Teas for gut health.
Phivida’s Nano-CBD™ Iced Tea blends are designed to treat the GI-tract, and maximize the body’s ability to absorb orally ingested cannabinoids and phyto-nutraceuticals. Phivida’s Nano-CBD™ potentiates enhanced bioavailability of cannabinoids (i.e. a faster acting, longer lasting, timed released) while preventing oxidation prior to absorption and protection from first-pass metabolism. Phivida uses Nano-CBD™ technology via polymeric nanoparticle carrier processes studied for enhanced drug delivery in nutraceutical applications.
Clinical studies show gut health plays as a critical role in modulating major physiological process in the body, just like the ECS.i CBD is widely studied on Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) a chronic inflammatory condition comprised of; Ulcerative Colitis (UC) and Crohn’s disease (CD), as illustrated on www.pubmed.gov.
A 2014 report from Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA) cited 1.6 million Americans have IBD, up 12.5% since 2011.ii,iii A recent study on IBD found cannabinoids effective for symptom relief and control. The majority of subject patients felt that cannabinoids were “very helpful” for relief of abdominal pain and nausea.iv In late 2017, a WHO report confirmed cannabidiol is “safe, non-toxic, non-psychoactive and medicinal”.v
Dr. Chris Meletis, Phivida Clinical Advisor states; “the global health care community is paying close attention to CBD and gut health. Phivida presented a lecture on the connection between cannabinoids and the gut-brain system at the Global A4M Conference and the response was very positive. The GI tract has endocannabinoid receptors for a reason as CBD studies show strong clinical outcomes in the treatment gut health.”
