Inergetics Successfully Completes Phase I Development of its CBD-Based Product Line

Today, Inergetics, Inc. announced that it has successfully completed its first phase towards formulating its proprietary line of natural cannabidiol CBD-based nutritional supplements that the company is developing in partnership with Terra Tech Corp.

“This is a critical milestone for us in our quest to enter the marketplace as the gold standard of cannabinoid supplements,” said Carol Germano, RD, CNS, CDN, Chief Scientific Officer, Inergetics. “Innovation in cannabinoid extraction from food sources other than cannabis and hemp as well as leading technology to enhance bioavailability was our number one goal in this important phase of the initiative and we achieved it.”

Research has shown that cannabinoids have medical application for various conditions including epilepsy, glaucoma, osteoporosis, anorexia, Alzheimer’s disease and pain treatment. Following a successful CBD Medical Advisory Board meeting, led by Germano, Inergetics has successfully procured targeted cannabinoids from industrial hemp, cannabis and other unique dietary sources.

According to Inergetics, its CBD-based supplements are expected to be distributed through medical marijuana dispensaries in 2015.

“Our considerable momentum completing Phase I of our CBD product development is timely with growing validation in the marketplace as a major national news organization like The New York Times takes a position as it did this Sunday, July 27th in its editorial section calling for the national legalization of cannabis,” said Inergetics’ CEO Mike James.

On Sunday, The New York Times made history by publishing an editorial calling for an end to marijuana prohibition. The editorial compared marijuana prohibition to the failed alcohol prohibition policy of the 1930’s, and claimed that marijuana is less dangerous than alcohol and tobacco.

“In addition, it is important to note that the medical applications of cannabis and CBD are varied with the greatest opportunity in the broader consumer marketplace. Our progress is significant and puts Inergetics on the leading edge of this business,” said James.
