Growblox Sciences, Inc. (GBLX), a biopharmaceutical research and development company, is focused on creating safe, standardized pharmaceutical-grade cannabis-based therapies for various medical conditions. The company is pioneering technology, industry-leading processes, and a big data-driven clinical research and development algorithm to bring relief to patients in communities across the country.

The company’s GrowBLOX technology suite includes the TissueBLOX, GrowBLOX, and CureBLOX equipment. Together, these components provide unparalleled control and monitoring of cannabis cultivation throughout the plant's life-cycle. These patent pending processes were designed to produce a safe and consistent cannabis product under cGMP guidelines. Utilizing a computer-regulated system that optimizes the nutrients, water, temperature, and gas levels, the GrowBLOX suite produces cannabis with more active ingredients per pound than traditional cultivation methods.

Also, based on an analysis of preclinical and clinical data from thousands of peer-reviewed studies, Growblox Sciences has identified the most effective profiles of cannabinoids and terpenes for the treatment of conditions within seven therapeutic categories. As a result of this extensive research and the analysis of the active ingredient profiles of 30,000 cannabis strains in conjunction with a major testing lab, the company will be able to provide patients with natural cannabis strains containing the ideal ratios for treating specific diseases or symptoms.

Another significant advantage held by the company stems from an accelerated drug development program to finish in 3-5 years instead of the 15-20 years typically seen in traditional pharmaceutical development programs. Armed with an intellectual property strategy that takes full advantage of the design of the GrowBLOX technology suite and protects the valuable foundation laid, Growblox Sciences has positioned itself well for long-term success in the burgeoning cannabis space.

Technology Suite

The GrowBLOX technology suite provides unparalleled control and monitoring of cannabis cultivation throughout the plant's life-cycle. These patent pending processes were designed to produce a safe and consistent cannabis product under cGMP (current good manufacturing practice) guidelines.

TissueBLOX™

GBLX’s innovative TissueBLOX system is designed to ensure genetic uniformity of GB Sciences’ proprietary strains. The tissue culture incubator is programmed to regulate lighting, temperature, and humidity to facilitate cell multiplication and the formation of embryos and shoots from the sterile explants. After roots form, the plantlets are transferred to another module where the roots are placed into aeroponic media blocks and the plant adapts for life in a GrowBLOX chamber.

 

GrowBLOX™

After transfer from the tissue culture box, the plantlets are grown in a completely controlled environment. Temperature, humidity, lighting, CO2 and nutrition are programmed to meet the specific needs of the cannabis strain that is grown throughout the grow cycle. The plants are protected from any outside pollutants or germs. The only time the chambers are opened is for trimming.

Years of development under the direction of GBLX’s Chief Engineer Wayne Love were necessary to create the GrowBLOX. Using the most advanced and reliable components on the market, every GrowBLOX can be remotely monitored and programmed from mobile devices or from the company’s central grow facility.

CureBLOX™

The CureBLOX drying system matches plant strains to an optimal temperature, pressure, and humidity algorithm to ensure perfectly cured, pathogen-free medicine. CureBLOX cabinets adjust the ambient humidity, temperature, and air pressure inside the chamber to regulate the movement of moisture inside the plant material. This preserves the medicinal cannabinoids and terpenes while removing any potential molds or contaminants. This curing process usually takes between eight and 12 days

 


GB Sciences – From Plant to Medicine

Product Claims * Medical Research * Lab Testing * Clinical Trials * FDA Compliance * Data Analytics

GB Sciences has developed its proprietary GrowBLOX technology suite to control the growth of cannabis and other plants with high medicinal value to a pharmaceutical-industry quality standard. The GrowBLOX system allows the company to create “GBLX” branded, patented and certified therapeutic mixtures of raw plant ingredients through a comprehensive GBLX Quality Management Program. GB Sciences then acts as the central hub for testing the GBLX-certified materials in a technologically data-driven biopharmaceutical innovation system that aims to create and validate novel cannabis-based therapies for patients with clinically unmet needs.

In order to treat specific disease categories with cannabis-based products, the company must correlate the profiles of active ingredients with symptom and disease-specific improvements. These active ingredients include both cannabinoids and terpenes, which have been shown to be effective in the treatment of conditions including pain management, mood, metabolism, inflammation, cancer, neural and immune disorders.

Targeted Treatment Categories

Based on an analysis of preclinical and clinical data from 1000s of peer-reviewed studies, GBLX has identified the most effective profiles of cannabinoids and terpenes for the treatment of conditions within seven GBLX targeted therapeutic categories. The company then classified natural cannabis strains containing the ideal ratios for treating specific diseases, or symptoms within these GBLX targeted treatment categories by performing a preliminary cluster analysis of the active ingredient profiles of 30,000 cannabis strains in conjunction with a major testing lab.

  • Cancer Treatments - $114 billion (2018)
    • nausea, appetite, cancer growth

    Cardioprotection - $187 billion (2018)
    • ischemi, inflammation, circulation

    Metabolic Syndrome - $139.5 billion (2017)
    • blood sugar, appetite

    Pain Management - $29.47 billion (2018)
    • acute pain, inflammation pain, chronic pain

    Neurological Disorders - $952 billion (2018)
    • insomnia, anxiety, spasms, epileptic seizures, psychosis, depression, protect nerves

    Inflammation - $85.9 billion (2017)
    • Gastritis, psoriasis

    Compromised Immune System - $38 billion (2018)
    • Immunostimulant, nausea, wasting syndrome

 

5 GB Sciences Drug Discovery Advantages

The GBLX Drug Discovery Program has 5 strategic advantages that allow the company to patent protect the GBLX Accelerated Drug Development Program to finish in 3-5 years instead of the 15-20 years required in the traditional pharmaceutical development program.

  1. Certified Cannabis Extracts = Clinical Testing Materials
    Phase IV Human Trials > Medical Cannabis Dispensaries
    GBLX-PRO APP = Drug Discovery Engine
    Accelerated Regulatory Strategy > Fast Track Approvals
    GBLX Research Partners GBLX Drug Development Ecosystem

How the Accelerated Development Program Works

How do you get from phase I to phase IV human trials in less than 15 years and for less than $1 billion? Start with phase IV. Under state-regulated medical marijuana programs, GB Sciences can validate the effectiveness of its cannabis-based therapies in human phase IV clinical trials (1) that are coordinated through the GBLX-PRO smartphone app (2). The GBLX-PRO app coordinates strain profile information with symptom relief as a part of the GBLX Drug Discovery Program. The GBLX Accelerated Regulatory Strategy leverages established cannabis safety profiles as well as fast-track approvals or orphan drug designations to reduce clinical trial times and expenses (3). GBLX is also able to earn revenue from sales of the certified raw materials through dispensaries sales during the drug discovery process (4).

GB Products – Locking in Industry Standards

Product Design * Compound Formulations * Packaging * Branding * Marketing * Distribution

GB Sciences is developing a comprehensive line of highly effective cannabis-based therapies ranging from custom medical compounds to consumer health & beauty products. The GB Sciences cultivation methodology ensures a consistent ratio of the plant’s medicinal properties for each and every harvest. This is a critical factor when creating formulations for standardized therapeutic products.

GB Sciences' Product Development Approach relies on:

  1. Creation of cGMP-certified raw cannabis materials in the GrowBLOX
    Isolation of active cannabinoid and terpenoid ingredients from the raw materials in post-processing procedures.

The key factors to transforming plants into true medicine involves consistency in dosing, quality and efficacy. In order to accomplish these goals, the company first process the whole plant and measure the individual cannabinoid and terpenoid profiles within different cannabis strains. GBLX tests these natural combinations of active ingredients for effectiveness in human phase IV trials. Then the company can isolate individual active ingredients from the cannabis plant and compound the ideal ratios based on the desired effect for specific treatments. This ensures that the appropriate combinations of active cannabis-based ingredients are consistently produced and can be properly dosed within an effective treatment plan.

GBLX Series Product Line

The GBLX line of products is the signature collection of cannabinoid therapies developed and produced by GB Sciences. Infused with certified-active ingredients derived from cannabis plants grown using the GrowBLOX system. This line of product features proprietary cannabinoid and terpenoid blends that are being extensively studied for optimal efficacy. The GBLX line will be medically dosed and prepackaged in order to give patients the same assurance of quality that they expect from all other medicines sold on the market.

IP & Regulatory Strategy

The ability to patent protect processes and formulations is central to value creation at GB Sciences. GBLX’s intellectual property strategy takes full advantage of the design and utility of its GrowBLOX technology suite; as well as, the processes for creating certified raw cannabis materials and pharmaceutical compositions. Cannabis-based products have an advantage in regulated industries because of the current separation of state and federal guidance.

GB Sciences' product development pathway is divided based on its core operations: Cultivation, Post-Processing, and Manufacturing. Cultivation and Certified Materials are regulated by state medical marijuana laws, whereas GBLX Proprietary Blends and Manufacturing are regulated by Federal Agencies, such as the DEA, NIDA and the U.S. FDA.
