Charlotte's Web announced a collaboration between its CW Labs science division and the University at Buffalo's Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences to advance hemp cannabinoid science through a research program that provides a better understanding of the therapeutic uses and safety of cannabinoids. The new partnership includes collaboration on a global program to advance cannabinoid sciences implementation research and safety for both supplement and biomedical use of cannabinoids with the coordination center at Buffalo, NY. Its purpose is to identify optimal approaches to advance the safe use of cannabinoid-containing products and identify the gaps in current knowledge. The program will include the design and implementation of novel population-based clinical informatics analysis using large databases, pilot projects that facilitate better understanding of pre-clinical and clinical pharmacology, and drug interactions to develop safe approaches to cannabinoid therapy. "We realize the value of partnering our established cannabinoid product business models with an internationally recognized leader in clinical research to address the growing field of cannabinoid health and wellness products," says Tim Orr, senior vice president of innovation at CW Labs. "This collaboration will oversee multidisciplinary teams conducting cutting edge research in new areas of implementation to expand the database of evidence that can guide future therapeutics development in the field. We are pleased to have established this working relationship with UB's Center for Integrated Global Biomedical Sciences and the opportunity that this new alliance creates."
