Dr. Chuanhai Cao, Associate Professor of Pharmacy at the University of South Florida is a renowned Alzheimer’s researcher. He discovered that THC, the psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, in combination with other formulations, helps slow down the build-up of plaque in the brain that is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. Hyalolex is based on Dr. Cao’s and other independent research.
In November 2018 we were awarded a patent for a phytocannabinoid formulation for pain. We have filed seven patents with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) for indications of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, seizures, and eating disorders.
