DALLAS, Jan. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Kali-Extracts, Inc. (Kali, Inc. dba/Kali-Extracts, Inc.) (USOTC: KALY) ("KALY") management today commented on the potential benefit the company could enjoy from the upcoming session in March of the United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs. The session will include a vote on removing cannabis and cannabis resin from Schedule IV of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs (1961). The result would be the recognition of cannabis and cannabis resin having medical value. KALY management indicated this would have a very positive impact on the company's ongoing research and development surrounding its U.S. Patented Cannabis Extraction Process and associated pharmaceutical formulations.
KALY's cannabis biopharmaceutical technology intellectual property portfolio contains a deep pipeline of cannabinoid product candidates including four distinct compounds listed here:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) - The market for COPD treatment is anticipated to reach $14 billion by 2025;
- Type 2 Diabetes - The market for Type 2 Diabetes is expected to be a $64 billion market by 2026;
- Cancer Pain Management - The overall pain management treatment market is anticipated to reach $83 billion by 2024, and
- Epilepsy - The market for epilepsy treatment is anticipated to reach $9 billion by 2022.
In conjunction with the research already conducted and the next phase of research now moving forward, KALY recently filed for a new patent application specifically on its formulation for symptoms associated with COPD and other similar respiratory conditions. KALY also filed for a trademark on the name RespRx as the brand name for its CBD formulation to treat the symptoms associated with COPD and other similar respiratory conditions. The market for COPD treatment is anticipated to reach $14 billion by 2025.
In addition to KALY's ongoing efforts to develop prescription therapies, KALY has initiated a program to certify its proprietary CBD extracts derived from KALY's U.S. Patented Extraction Process as an Over-The-Counter (OTC) drug under the requirements prescribed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
