Flora Growth Corp. (NASDAQ: FLGC), a leading all-outdoor cultivator and manufacturer of global cannabis products and brands, has announced its entry into an agreement to begin scientific clinical trials globally. According to the update, the focus of this study will be on the use of cannabinoids in patients suffering from fibromyalgia or chronic pain, with primary research sites located in the United States and the United Kingdom. By running phase trials in parallel (in vitro, in vivo, pilot in human, safety/efficacy, etc.), Flora Pharma expects to fast track traditional FDA and NHS timelines. “A paradigm shift is upon us where health care practitioners, researchers, patients and adult-use consumers are starting to understand, accept and embrace the therapeutic potential offered by phytocannabinoid-based medicine. As such, there is an urgent need for more research to better understand the molecular and biochemical effects of cannabis at the cellular level, to begin to apply its implications as a pharmaceutical drug,” said Dr. Annabelle Manalo-Morgan, director and lead scientific advisor of Flora Growth. “I’m extremely pleased that our team recognizes the importance and necessity of this research, not only to create and bring to market novel pharmaceutical cannabis products for patients around the world that are more efficacious and have a superior safety profile compared to traditional and incumbent pharmaceutical treatment options, but to also enhance long-term shareholder value. While this may seem like an ambitious and costly endeavor, we will be able to leverage our seed-to-sale platform to supply products for research and commercialization at incredibly favorable and competitive price points, while partnering with established organizations and institutions where additional funding subsidies are available.”
