Changing public opinion and regulations in recent years have led to an unprecedented growth in the market for cannabinoid-based products. As the prevalence of cannabinoids such as CBD increases, the pharmaceutical industry has only just begun to explore their therapeutic value.  

A handful of cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical products are on the market today, and an ever-growing number are in the global development pipeline. Cannabinoids are being explored as a treatment for several indications. However, formulating effective pharmaceutical products with CBD and other cannabinoids introduces scientific, regulatory, and even legal challenges.

  • The history of medicinal cannabis
  • An overview of global pharmaceutical cannabinoid usage today
  • Common challenges formulating with CBD and other cannabinoids
  • A deep dive into cannabinoid formulation and stability-enhancement techniques
  • How to navigate the volatile regulatory and legal landscape surrounding cannabinoid-based drug products
