UK Researcher Works On Marijuana Patch

Discussion in 'Medical Marijuana Usage and Applications' started by Superjoint, Aug 21, 2003.

  1. A UK pharmacy researcher is working to create a prescription patch to deliver marijuana-like chemicals to ease nausea and stimulate appetite in people with AIDS and cancer.

    The patch would be a breakthrough because it could administer beneficial marijuana chemicals without inhaling the illegal plant.

    Most states outlaw smoking marijuana for medicinal purposes. Audra Stinchcomb's patch idea received $361,000 in funding three years ago by the American Cancer Society.

    Stinchcomb has applied for a patent related to the technology. Her patch will use marijuana compounds created in a chemist's lab, not from marijuana plants.
