Emerald Health Pharmaceuticals is a science-based company that uses the unique convergence of science, biology, and cannabis molecules like Cannabidiol (CBD) and Cannabigerol (CBG) to create new molecules – which can elicit beneficial effects (that CBD doesn’t) to potentially treat so-far incurable diseases.
This company is distinct from the public company we have interviewed before: Emerald Health Therapeutics Inc. (CVE:EMH) (OTCMKTS:EMHTF) (FRA:TBD) – the Canadian company involved in the CBD based technology of growing and extracting. Both of these companies are partially owned by Emerald Health Sciences (hence the name).
EHP is a private company based in the U.S. that creates unique compounds using CBD and CBG, which are scientifically and chemically manipulated to affect certain biologic pathways and receptors in the human body. The new molecules are validated to stop the progression, reverse and even cure a number of targeted, rare and incurable diseases.
The company has Stage II human clinical trials underway involving serious diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, Systemic Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease. EHP’s two molecules, EHP-101 and EHP-102, have composition patents and have been granted designations.
“CBD has known health benefits, anti-inflammation benefits but won’t change the course of progression of these rare diseases. Because [Emerald Health Pharmaceutical’s] molecules have been changed specifically to affect pathways in the body that are specific for treating Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, etc. This will stop the progression of the disease and can also reverse the disease.” – Jim DeMesa MD, MBA – Emerald Health Pharmaceuticals CEO
The company currently has Regulation A financing underway which gives people the opportunity to invest in the private company. EHP has announced the final closing date for this offering of March 28 by midnight. To date, EHP has received investment commitments of approximately $56.0 million from over 8,000 investors.
