Industry’s first clinically validated cannabinoid-based insomnia medication will launch globally

PHILADELPHIA, April 7, 2020 /AxisWire/ Zelira Therapeutics Ltd (ASX: ZLD,OTCQB: ZLDAF), a global leader in the development of clinically validated cannabis medicines based in both Perth, Australia and Philadelphia, is pleased to announce it has received the final report for its ZTL-101 medicinal cannabis trial for insomnia. Its findings represent a world-first clinical

validation demonstrating that ZTL-101 cannabis treatment is safe and effective for chronic insomnia. These results open prospects to launch and distribute this product in global markets including the USA in the second half of 2020.

The trial was undertaken at the world-class University of Western Australia (UWA) Centre for Sleep Science and was led by principal investigator Professor Peter Eastwood, and used a randomized, double-blind, cross-over design to evaluate the efficacy of Zelira’s proprietary

cannabis formulation (ZTL-101) to treat patients diagnosed with chronic insomnia. Twenty three patients were treated for 14 nights with ZTL-101 and 14 nights with placebo, separated by a one-week washout period. After dosing commenced, each participant was able to take a single (0.5ml of 11.5mg total cannabinoids) or double (1 ml of 23mg total cannabinoids) their dose of the medication, delivered sublingually, according to their symptoms.

Dr. Oludare Odumosu, Managing Director Zelira USA said, “We are pleased with the results of the study. This trial has yielded a comprehensive data-pack that supports our plans to launch 

the world’s first clinically validated cannabinoid-based insomnia medicine into global markets this year.”

Odumosu continues, “We acknowledge the dedicated team at the UWA Centre for Sleep Science and we thank the patients and supporting investigators who participated in the study.”

An estimated 70 million Americans have insomnia where the market for prescription and over the-counter medications is forecast to be worth over US$4 billion in annual revenue by 2022. Zelira is leading the development of clinically validated full spectrum cannabis medicines to access global markets for insomnia medications. 

Professor Peter Eastwood, Principal Investigator for the study, and Director at the Centre for Sleep Science at the University of Western Australia said, “This study represents the most rigorous clinical trial ever undertaken to assess the therapeutic potential of medicinal cannabis to treat the symptoms of chronic insomnia. The fact that ZLT-101 treatment achieved statistically significant, dose responsive improvements across a broad range of key insomnia indices is impressive, particularly given the relatively short two-week dosing window.” 

Analysis showed treated patients slept significantly longer, went to sleep faster and went back to sleep sooner after waking. Patients also reported significant improvement in quality of life measures including feeling rested after sleep, feeling less stressed, less fatigued and improved overall functioning.

Insomnia is a large unmet medical need. It affects -30% of the US population and is a major risk factor for patients suffering chronic pain, neurological disorders (Parkinson’s, dementia), mental disorders (anxiety, depression, anorexia) and cardiovascular disease. 

The market for prescription and over-the-counter medications to treat the condition in the US generates more than US$2 billion (A$3.3 billion) in annual revenue. As well as the US, Zelira will also aim to supply its insomnia formula in other markets where medicinal cannabis has been legalized including the US, Australia, Germany and the UK.

These positive results add ZLT-101 to the portfolio of Zelira products being commercialized including the recently launched HOPET range, in global markets including the US, Australia, Germany and the UK. The company is also undertaking further human clinical trials for autism and opioid reduction and is on-track to bring additional products for aged care and oral healthcare to market later in 2020. 

Osagie Imasogie, Chairman of Zelira, commented, “The positive outcome to this trial represents an important milestone for Zelira and its commitment to address the unmet need for clinically validated cannabis medicines and offer more treatment options to physicians and patients. Zelira’s clinically validated products, such as ZLT-101, continue to play a disruptive role in the traditional pharmaceutical industry.”

LOS ANGELES, CA, March 31, 2020 /AxisWire/ — Driven Deliveries Inc.(the “Company” or Driven) (OTC: DRVD), California’s fastest growing online cannabis retailer and direct-to-consumer delivery company announced today, that over the last 10 days the company has experienced record growth and demand with a greater than 100% increase in sales. Following California’s decision to deem Cannabis deliveries an “essential business,” Driven is increasing infrastructure to provide California customers safe access to legal cannabis through the government mandated quarantine.

“Driven Deliveries was founded on the bedrock principle of enabling universal access to cannabis to California’s population,” said Driven Deliveries’ CEO Christian Schenk. “Driven is the only service that provides deliveries to 92% of California’s population, giving millions of people access to on-demand legal cannabis from the security and safety of their own home during this very difficult time”.

Driven Deliveries’ proprietary logistics system, acquired from Budee Inc, designed to expand efficiently based on demand in a given area, performed flawlessly during the surge in demand. “Our major launch came earlier than expected,” said Sal Villanueva, President Driven Deliveries. “The operations team has done an amazing job integrating Driven’s 3 brands on a unified platform giving Driven the ability to rapidly support the additional demand,” he added.

The impact of coronavirus has required Driven to scale its driver network to meet the increase in demand. In an effort to comply with Government orders to stay home, Driven expects further growth as people continue to incorporate delivery services into their new routines.

Finally, Driven continues to innovate in ways to make delivery both easier and safer. Driven’s delivery system allows consumers to leverage electronic payment methods as well as cash, making it significantly more convenient than other options. In addition to the extra steps being taken to ensure safe deliveries through the use of protective disposable gloves and continuous sanitization, Driven is also exploring new ways that technology can be used for a contact free delivery while still meeting the ID verification requirements.

Driven Deliveries understands that anxiety and stress are increased around the country, and that both medical and recreational customers want access to cannabis without the risk of exposure associated with visiting a dispensary.

About Driven:

Driven Deliveries, Inc., is the first publicly traded cannabis delivery service operating within the United States. Founded by experienced technology and cannabis executives, the company provides e-commerce solutions, online sales, and on-demand cannabis delivery, in select cities where allowed by law. Driven offers legal cannabis consumers the ability to purchase and receive their marijuana in a fast and convenient manner. By 2020, legitimate cannabis revenue in the U.S. market is projected to hit $23 billion. By leveraging consumer trends, and offering a proprietary, turnkey delivery system to its customers, management believes it is uniquely positioned to best serve the needs of the emerging cannabis industry and capture notable market share within the sector.

Patient and Business Cannabis Conference Highlights the Lifestyle Brands Driving the Emerging Cannabis and Hemp Marketplaces + Elevates Cannabis and Hemp Industry Opportunities at Cox Convention Center  3.22-24.2020

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – March 4, 2020 /AxisWire/ Oklahoma Cannabis Expo [OCE] is the most exclusive and inclusive hemp, CBD and medical marijuana expo in America. The OCE is not only priceless to patients, but ‘inner circle’ industry exposure for professionals, and education for all. OCE showcases a goldmine of the most knowledgeable and successful professionals in the hemp and cannabis industries— all focused on elevating the industries, and furthering access, education and opportunities. A disruptive force in the 72B American cannabis and hemp markets, OCE aims to serve as a blueprint for the future of hemp and medical marijuana conferences — and conferences in general, as legalization marches across the United States. 

The Founder: Amy Dawn Bourlon-Hilterbran, the owner of Millennium Grown, an event production company that specializes in the hemp and cannabis arenas, and as well, is the founder of OCE. She created the expo because she saw a need to incorporate education around the plant with tremendous professional opportunities. The Mission: to elevate the B2B experience with decision-makers, while also having B2C elements for those wanting to enter the industry, with a focus on the patient. The OCE will feature emerging and sophisticated cannabis brands and experts who will explore ways that people can incorporate hemp and medical cannabis into their lifestyles, their business, their investments. The OCE will also showcase companies and service providers who capitalize on opportunities for hemp entrepreneurs, elevate the cannabis experience for patients, and provide inner circle networking for the ambitious cannabis professional. Additionally, attendees can expect live music, entertainment and concessions. 

The Next: Over 200,000 people, and 8% of Oklahoma citizens, are now medical marijuana patients after only one year since legalization, and that means “Patient Purchasing Power” [PPP]. PPP — to those who are ahead of the game and innovative within the hemp and medical cannabis industries — means massive opportunity. Knowing where to be involved, when, with who is now the inspiration for those taking the long view in their cannabis career. For patients, it’s critical to know which expo or conference to attend to get up-to-date medical information from the leading licensed medical professionals can mean success or failure in their goals to improve their health and wellness.

Tommy Chong, comedian, actor, director, activist states: Being a part of the OCE and bringing education, information and some laughs to people about the potentials of hemp and cannabis is an honor. Oklahoma has embraced the plant, patients have legal access and industry opportunities are everywhere.  It’s a great example of citizens legalizing and capitalizing on many levels. Laws are changing and minds are changing and we are all learning that this is a very important medical option, but it is also an incredible opportunity for farmers, small business owners, and investors. Totally the green rush, with silver linings: changing laws, saving lives and preventing incarcerations over a plant.

Carolyn Gerin, Author, Activist, Founder: Cannawise.co; Co-author: Road Map for Revolutionaries: Cannabis is an economic, cultural, and healing force in America, and shows no signs of stopping as long as citizens, lawmakers, policymakers, and businesses demand and fight for legalization. State by state, we see the country opening hearts and minds to the plant as legalization marches forward, and all the way to the polls. Cannawise.co is proud to co-lead the National Cannabis Industry Associations Marketing and Advertising Committee MAC2020 (Election 2020) team — we promote change through activations, campaigns, media, strategic partnerships, and data capture to move our message into action to inspire people to show up at the polls (and run for office). The upcoming presidential election will be a game-changer for our industry: by pulling together as a community and industry — as activists and change agents — we can flip the script of what we are experiencing now. My agency, Cannawise.co is proud to have branded yet another great cannabis industry thought leader and community builder: the OCE. We are thrilled to support the great state of Oklahoma and the OCE for their tireless work in bringing cannabis awareness to the heartland, and bringing forward abundance, prosperity, healing, and market leadership.

Amy Dawn Bourlon-Hilterbran, owner of Millennium Grown and Founder of the Oklahoma Cannabis Expo states: Tackling issues of stigma and legalization in our home state, the Oklahoma Cannabis Expo [OCE] is educating patients while showcasing tangible market opportunities for businesses and entrepreneurs to create prosperity and job creation. We aim to create a next-level conference: where top, legitimate, hemp and cannabis brands percolate in one curated eco-system. When people know where to go, who to work with, what to buy, and how to responsibly serve and dose cannabis, the industry (local and national) becomes coaligned with patient needs and everyone wins.

New York City – March 3, 2020 /AxisWire/ The Green Market Report (GMR), the cannabis industry’s leading financial news outlet, releases its first Psychedelic Trend Report.  This nine-page, 3500-word report was created as a result GMR’s first ground-breaking, sold-out event on the emerging psychedelic market it held in NYC in January. This original report looks at the trends and companies that are paving the way for new looks at old treatments. You can download the report at greenmarketreport.com/reports.

As more municipalities and states begin to decriminalize various psychedelic products for medical treatments, the investment world has taken an interest in the emerging industry. Many cannabis industry leaders and investors have begun crossing over into the psychedelic world to start new companies and pursue new medical treatments.It was the interest in this evolving industry that caused the Green Market Report to host its first Psychedelic Investing Summit in New York City.

We have heard from our readers at Green Market Report that there is a great deal of interest in this emerging field of psychedelics and the companies that are leading the way. We’re also seeing that some cannabis investors are adding psychedelic investments to their portfolios. As we tried to research this industry, we found that information was lacking and that is what prompted us to hold our Summit and write this report.” Debra Borchardt, Co-founder & CEO of Green Market Media

This report gives a brief introduction to the uses of psychedelic treatments, the potential patient populations and the legal landscape for these compounds. It also highlights companies like Mind Medicine Inc., Atai Life Sciences, Field Trip Health and Eleusis Ltd., which are each pursuing different paths for treating patients. The report also covers the research being performed by companies like Back of the Yards Algae Sciences and the investment goals of companies Green Sky Strategies that is putting money into these endeavors.

Green Market Report will be hosting its next conference The Economics of 2020 Cannabis on April 3, in New York City featuring one panel on psychedelics and following that it will host another Psychedelic Investing Summit on July 30, in San Francisco. The report is available now on the Green Market Report website.

Papa & Barkley’s “Declaration of Clean Cannabis” defines what consumers should look for in its cannabis and CBD products and invites the industry to join the movement for transparency and clean standards 

EUREKA, Calif. – Jan. 8, 2020 /AxisWire/ Papa & Barkley, the #1 California cannabis wellness company best known for its award-winning topicals and tinctures, released its Declaration of Clean Cannabisa set of principles that define the rigorous steps that their products undergo from soil to shelf in order to produce clean cannabis wellness products with premium ingredients. As the cannabis industry is still evolving at the national level, Papa & Barkley has the opportunity to lead the industry by example, while also educating consumers on what to look for when researching and purchasing cannabis and CBD products.  

We believe in clean cannabis as being at the core of what we do,” said Adam Grossman, Founder and CEO of Papa & Barkley. Our mission is to unlock the potential of cannabis to improve people’s lives, and we are committed to sourcing clean cannabis and making great products using best-in-class production methods.  

The Declaration of Clean Cannabis includes five key principles: 

  1. Organic and regenerative farming practices – Choose trusted farm partners in the U.S. who use native soil, organic and regenerative farming practices when growing both cannabis and hemp plants.   
  2. Solventless Avoid solvents and chemical extraction methods that yield isolates or distillates; employ a solventless whole plant infusion process that maintains the integrity of the plant and creates more effective products.  
  3. Whole plant infusion – By infusing the whole plant, it maintains the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, chlorophyll and valuable phytonutrients; naturally infused into products without the use of chemicals or adding terpenes.
  4. Clean ingredients – Supporting ingredients such as carrier oils, essential oils and beeswax are clean, conscientiously sourced and made with no residual chemicals. 
  5. Triple-tested by third-party – To ensure the product is clean throughout the process from soil to shelf, its crucial to test the product at three stages – the input cannabis plant material, the infused oil and the final blended product. 

“We applaud Papa & Barkley for challenging others in the cannabis industry to assess their supply chain, self-regulate and triple test to provide clean cannabis products,” said Aaron Riley, President of CannaSafe. “Their principles for clean cannabis ensure product efficacy, and we’re proud to work with Papa & Barkley and be a part of the movement for leading the standard of clean in the cannabis industry.”

New York City – January 7, 2010 /AxisWire/ The Green Market Summit is introducing a half-day event hosted by the industry’s premier financial news organization, the Green Market Report, on the emerging trend of psychedelics and the opportunities available to investors. The Economics of Psychedelics Investing will offer a program on the opportunities in Alternative Plant Investments, the quickly emerging industry of psychedelic medicines and the companies looking to capitalize on it. The event will take place on January 24, 2020 from 1pm to 5pm located at 54 West 40th St., New York ,NY.
