Transforming cannabis into scientifically proven and clinically approved medical solutions
OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. aspires to realize the potential of medical cannabis research and develops medicinal products, specifically designed to improve the lives of millions.
We fuse the freshness and the visionary approach of an innovative company with the wisdom and the knowledge of experienced players in the pharmaceutical industry and in cannabis-based treatment, by incorporating cutting-edge research, proven global experience and unprecedented professionalism of our people.
TOPICAL OINTMENT FOR SKIN DISEASES
Whilst potentially suitable for multiple skin conditions, the initial indication for OWC’s topical ointment is for Psoriasis. In pre-clinical studies, our cannabinoid-based topical ointment demonstrated up to a 70 percent reduction in Psoriasis-related biomarkers, including keratinocyte proliferation and inflammatory cytokine expression.
SUBLINGUAL DISINTEGRATING TABLET
OWC has developed a cannabinoid-enriched sublingual disintegrating tablet that will offer an alternative to smoking and inhalation, allowing for controlled, consistent dosing and diligent compliance to medical regimens. It will potentially offer quick pain and other symptomatic relief, as sublingual absorption provides a direct route for cannabis to enter more rapidly into the blood system through the oral mucosal tissue.
Research and Development
Headquartered in Israel, OWC R&D is focused on discovering and developing cannabis-based novel products and therapies, designed for treating specific medical conditions and alleviating certain disease-associated symptoms.
OWC leverages its extensive network, comprising some of Israel’s leading researchers, scientists, academic and medical centers, as well as cannabis breeders and extractors, to unlock the potential of cannabis for diverse therapeutic applications. OWC research is dedicated to provide patients with the assurance that they are using products that are chemically characterized, clinically tested, safe to use and efficient. Product development and manufacturing are conducted according to the Israeli Ministry of Health and quality regulations (such as: GAP, GLP GMP and GCP).
