OVERVIEW

The problem is that Mental Disorders are on the rise and there is limited science behind “medical” cannabinoid products.

Global cost – mental disorders will cost the global economy $16 trillion by 20301
Mental health ailments – 1 in 5 North Americans has some type of mental health condition2,3,4
Limited science-backed cannabinoid natural plant solutions – to treat mental Illnesses (alternative to opioids)
Cannabinoid medicine – physicians have a difficult time prescribing precise doses
Neurological treatment limitations – cannabidiol (CBD) by itself does not effectively cross the blood-brain barrier
Only one CBD pharmaceutical drug on the market – approved by the US-FDA – to treat epileptic neurological conditions – Epidiolex®, developed by former GW Pharma

CanaQuest has a solution.

Game Changing Formulations – IP protected, International Patents Filed

  • Drug candidate, Rx CQ-001, supported by (CBD molecules + formula) – molecules bond and synergistically attach to PPAR receptor allowing Rx CQ-001 to cross the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to target the central nervous system (the brain) with amplified effects and efficacy. CBD by itself does not do this.

Pre-clinical trial results – published in peer-reviewed European Journal of Neuroscience. Oct. 2020. 

  • Drug candidate, Rx CQ-002, supported by (THC molecules + formula) – is a safer alternative to all other THC products. Pre-clinical trials demonstrated reversal of depression-like and schizophrenia related symptoms, complete blockage of memory impairment, hyperactive activity, and gene vulnerability.

Pre-clinical trial results – published in peer-reviewed European Journal of Neuroscience Oct. 2020 & International Journal of Molecular Sciences July 2021.

STRATEGY

strategy

CanaQuest’s strategy is to:

  • Continue developing scientific-backed proprietary formulations with its scientific partners, backed by pre-clinical trial results.
  • Conduct clinical trials for drug candidates with universities and institutions (pre-approved & funded, and pending clinical trials)
  • Partner with a global pharmaceutical organization.

 Pre-approved and Pending Clinical Trials

  • University of Montreal (Phase II)………pre-approved and funded
  • McMaster University (Phase II)…………pre-approved and funded
  • Ontario Brain Institute (Phase II/III)….clinical study funded & a pending clinical trial
