 “We have two businesses: continuing legacy operations and canna-pharmaceuticals. We have filed six cannabis-based patents addressing various ailments and expect to make our most advanced and promising formulation, Hyalolex for Alzheimer’s, available to patients in select U.S. states in the first two months of 2018. Roughly 5.3 million individuals in the U.S. and 44 million worldwide suffer from this debilitating disease. Our formulation, Hyalolex, has been shown to address the primary indicators of Alzheimer’s, plaques and tangles, as well as alleviate several end points of the disease like anxiety and sleep disorder.  Importantly, this is achieved without the patient getting high, or suffering long-term damage to neurons,” states Ram Mukunda, IGC CEO.
