    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=”” 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
    alcohol recovery.”

    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.
