Medipure’s research is focused on the body’s endocannabinoid system, a previously under-explored network of receptors throughout the body that plays a role in many biological and physiological functions. It’s focused on the development of a non-addictive prescription drug line to address chronic pain, anxiety and a variety of other conditions. The drug formulations could be an economical, non-addictive alternative to opioid and benzodiazepine-based prescription drugs that can be highly addictive with life-altering side effects.
