JUPITER, Fla., March 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today CBD Brands, a cutting-edge wellness brand dedicated to exploring the multiple therapeutic and medical uses of cannabidiol (CBD) via a multitude of convenient products, announced that it has appointed Dr. Glynn Wilson to its Board of Directors. Dr. Wilson, who previously served as the Chairman & CEO of TapImmune, Inc. prior to its merger with Marker Therapeutics, Inc., will draw from his more than 20 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry to help expand clinical trials and research into the effectiveness of cannabidiol in the treatment of cancer as well as in combination therapy with existing cancer treatments on the market.
"This represents a huge opportunity to provide new medical and therapeutic products for patients," said Wilson. "Studies have already shown that CBD may be successful in the treatment of common ailments like anxiety and joint pain, and–perhaps more notably–pre-clinical trials have shown significant promise for its use in the treatment of certain cancers. From my recent work in immunotherapy my goal has been to examine new ways of treating unmet medical needs and in to take exciting new approaches through clinical trials, so I am delighted to join the team at CBD Brands to be part of the emerging field of CBD and cannabinoid research and clinical evaluation."
Dr. Wilson brings an extensive background in corporate and product management in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries to his role with CBD Brands. He formerly served as Head of Drug Delivery at SmithKline Beecham Pharmaceuticals, Research Area Head in Advanced Drug Delivery at Ciba-Geigy Pharmaceuticals, and most recently as Chairman & CEO of TapImmune where he developed the clinical pipeline and up-listed the Company to the Nasdaq National Market. Through his expertise in taking lead product concepts and technologies from ideation to commercialization, his background is perfectly suited to help CBD Brands explore the targeted, transdermal absorption of CBD via the brand's initial products CaniSun and CaniSkin.
"Studies have already shown that the consistent application of CBD to the skin can help provide significant targeted pain relief and inflammation relief in arthritic joints," said Wilson. "That alone is immensely exciting, but to pair that potential with the dedication CBD Brands has to develop easy-to-use pharmaceutical quality CBD products provides many exciting opportunities."
"Dr. Wilson's background in the pharmaceutical industry is beyond reproach," Brian John, the CEO of CBD Brands, said about Dr. Wilson's appointment to the board. "We're fortunate to have his leadership as we continue to explore the relatively uncharted waters and possibilities for therapeutic applications of CBD. We know his guidance can help us in our pursuit to create life-changing products."
Dr. Wilson has a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and has conducted medical research at The Rockefeller University in New York. His initial responsibilities with the company will be in strategizing a roadmap for success in the rapidly growing hemp-derived CBD market, which is expect to exceed $20 billion within three years.
