As quoted in the press release:


Pivot Pharmaceuticals is pleased to announce that it has signed a Definitive Agreement with Israeli-based SoluBest Ltd. to acquire the worldwide rights for the use, development and commercialization of its patented Solumer™ Oral Drug Delivery Technology (“Solumer™”) for the improved bioavailability, delivery and commercialization of Cannabidiol (CBD), Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other biocannabis-based products.

patented and versatile technology, Solumer™ was developed by SoluBest Ltd. to maximize the solubility, bioavailability and physical stability of drug substances utilizing submicron particle engineering.
