VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 25, 2020 / Ovation Science Inc. (CSE:OVAT) (“Ovation” or the “Company”), a personal care and topical cannabis product development company with a patented skin delivery technology, today announced that it has filed a provisional patent with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its highly effective transdermal delivery of cannabinoids CBD and THC; titled “Composition and Method for Transdermal Delivery of Cannabidiol (CBD) and D9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).”
Ovation is focused on developing exceptional topical and transdermal products for the global marketplace. Ovation’s provisional patent application sets a priority date and protects the Company’s invention of a novel and improved composition and method of a transdermal delivery system allowing delivery of cannabinoids through the skin at therapeutic levels. Transdermal delivery is a more efficient method than oral (edibles) or inhalation (smoking or vaping) as it avoids metabolism of the majority of the cannabinoids by the first pass through the liver and delayed onset, which is the case for oral dosage forms, and damage to the lungs by inhalation. This patent filing is an addition to the current patent protection that already covers Ovation’s delivery system. Once granted, this patent would extend Ovation’s patent protection for transdermal delivery to 2040.
“Today’s announcement builds on Ovation’s licensed patent portfolio with a patent application specifically focused on transdermal delivery. We continually leverage our expertise in topical and transdermal delivery of CBD and THC in order to develop these highly innovative products. This patent application adds another layer of protection to our invention and an advantage over other delivery methods,” said Terry Howlett, President of Ovation. “We are also committed to providing consumers with products backed by science as a reassurance that our products are highly effective in their delivery of cannabinoids.”
Ovation’s transdermal products are applied topically to the skin and
