Tetra Bio-Pharma (TSXV:TBP; OTCQB:TBPMF) announced it obtained Health Canada approval for their phase 2 clinical trial investigating the safety and efficacy of different “doses and ratios” of medical cannabis oil treating chronic pain.
As quoted in the press release:
“To our knowledge, this is the first Health Canada-approved phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial using encapsulated medical cannabis oil in Canada,” said Bernard Fortier, Tetra Bio-Pharma’s CEO. According to an Eight Capital analysis1, the cannabis oil market is expected to reach 1.5B$ in 2024.
“This is a significant milestone in our mission to become a global bio-pharmaceutical leader in cannabinoids-based drug development. We currently have a strong pipeline of five cannabinoid-based products, all launched last year and using different delivery systems, in various stages towards Health Canada and FDA approval.”
The Phase 2 trial will be conducted with Montreal-based Santé Cannabis, Quebec’s first medical clinic and resource centre specializing in cannabis and cannabinoids for medical purposes.
