SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Feb. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Veritas Pharma Puerto Rico LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Veritas Pharma, Inc. (CSE: VRT; OTC: VRTHF; and Frankfurt: 2VP) (“Veritas”), today announced the dosing of the first adult volunteer in its clinical trial of their lead cannabis product (“CTL-X”) for the treatment of acute pain. The randomized, double-blinded crossover trial will assess the safety, tolerability and efficacy of CTL-X as a single dose vaporized challenge in 16 healthy adults. CTL-X, supplied by one of Puerto Rico’s notable cannabis performers, the Institute for Medical Cannabis (“IMC”), will be evaluated on its analgesic properties on simulated pain using standardized pain scales. The clinical research organization, Fundación de Investigación (“FDI”), administered the trial drug in the phase II-III unit at their state-of-the-art facility. Veritas and FDI anticipate data from the clinical trial in May 2019.
