Company to focus on benefits of CBD for non-addictive pain management
and opioid, alcohol addiction recovery
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/CBD?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#CBDlt;/agt;–Vivera
Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a pharmaceutical company focused on
non-addictive pain management, today announces the debut of TABMELT®, a
sublingual drug delivery system that Vivera has exclusively licensed for
the specific use for pharmaceutical cannabinoids, including cannabidiol
(CBD), a non-psychoactive compound derived from hemp, and other
hemp-derived and biosynthetic cannabinoid compounds.
“According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, on
average, 130 Americans die every single day from an opioid overdose,”
said Dr. Jon Norman, Chief Scientific Officer at Vivera. “We believe CBD
has several important roles to play in this national crisis. It may
offer a non-addictive way to manage pain and may create an alternative
to starting patients on opioids in the first place. In addition, it may
hold promise as a way to ease the detox process for patients in drug or
Internationally patented and U.S. patent-pending TABMELT® may optimize
the pharmaceutical delivery of CBD by offering a sublingual, set-dose
system, which may enhance bioavailability by largely avoiding first-pass
metabolism through the liver.
“Vivera’s commitment to innovative research, product development, and
providing non-addictive therapies and treatments to patients is the
foundation of our work,” said Olivia Karpinski, Co-founder and Executive
Vice President of Vivera. “Our goal is to provide a non-addictive
solution to patients nationwide who seek to manage pain and opioid
cessation and deterrence in a safer way.”
Vivera is headquartered in Newport Beach, California.
