Per the news release, this patent application, once converted into an international Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) application and pursued in key jurisdictions around the world, will offer significant commercial protections for InMed’s promising E. coli-based expression system, which enables the manufacture of any of the 90+ cannabinoid compounds found in the cannabis plant. “This novel approach to the biosynthesis of cannabinoids is a game-changer for drug development,” Dr. Vikramaditya Yadav, Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of British Columbia, stated in the news release. “The importance of producing cannabinoids that are identical to the naturally occurring compounds cannot be overstated.
