OneQor Pharmaceuticals Submits Patent Applications for Use of Hemp Extract in Treatment of Chronic Pain, Opioid Cessation and Menopausal Symptoms

PHOENIX, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / October 28, 2019 / OneQor Pharmaceuticals, a fully integrated developer and supplier of proprietary, plant-derived products to the pharmaceutical, health, beauty, fitness, and wellness industries, today announced that an Open Label study of the impact of broad spectrum hemp (BSH), added to existing treatments for chronic pain, opioid cessation, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and hot flashes has shown significant improvements in these conditions over several months of treatment. OneQor has filed patent applications with claims addressing each of these.

Dr. Vishal Khemlani, an anesthesiologist and pain medicine specialist, treated approximately 40 patients suffering from inadequate management of acute or chronic pain. Patients were treated with twice-daily BSH tincture added to their existing regimen. The quality, potency, and stability of the clinical supplies were assured by testing using validated analytical methods. The promising results from this study are statistically significant for the reduction of pain, stress, anxiety, improved sleep, and better overall quality of life. In addition, a number of patients were able to successfully withdraw from the use of opioids for pain management. Dose titration, selection of dose and dosing frequency were also part of the lead-in design for the clinical protocol.

“We are encouraged to swiftly move forward with additional studies to more fully define the best role of CBD and BSH in treating these conditions,” commented Dr. Joseph Fortunak, Chair of the Science Committee at OneQor.
