GB Sciences unit licenses IP to develop cannabis-based heart disease therapies

GB Sciences Inc. unit Growblox Life Sciences LLC has licensed intellectual property from Makai Biotechnology LLC.

The patent underlying the license was issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in July 2015 and claims therapeutic methods for the treatment of cardiac hypertrophy and associated pathologies through regulation of the cannabinoid receptor, TRPV1.

TRPV1 can be regulated therapeutically by plant-based cannabinoids, which creates potentially new therapeutic agents for the treatment of cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure.

Makai Biotechnology is a Hawaii-based cardiovascular therapy company developing novel therapies for the treatment of heart failure.
