Reduction of Opioid Dependency Phase I/Phase II Clinical Trials

Icahn School of Medicine, Mt. Sinai New York

In response to the critical need for non-opioid interventions in addressing opioid addiction, ANANDA Scientific is conducting groundbreaking research on the potential of cannabidiol (CBD) as a viable treatment strategy. Preliminary findings from preclinical rat studies indicate that CBD has the capacity to reduce heroin-seeking behavior.


Led by Yasmin Hurd, PhD at Mt. Sinai, in first of a series of planned trials, a Phase I trial evaluating the pharmacokinetic profile, safety, and drug tolerability of Nantheia™ ATL5 Ananda’s investigational CBD drug utilizing it proprietary Liquid Structure ™ delivery technology, in comparison to Epidolex™ has been completed. This trial involves 24 subjects and focused on assessing plasma PK parameters, urinary excretion of CBD and metabolites, and various safety assessments in healthy subjects.
