POINT ROBERTS, Wash. and LAS VEGAS, Nov. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- www.Investorideas.com, a global news source covering marijuana and hemp stocks and its cannabis podcast site www.potcasts.ca report from Las Vegas at this year’s biggest MJBizCon show to date, from the first ever Podcaster’s Row. Today’s special edition features an interview with Dr. Arup Sen, the Chief Science Officer and Member of the Board of Directors for Sproutly Canada Inc. (CSE:SPR) (OTCQB:SRUTF) (38G.F).
Dr. Sen sat down with Investor Ideas to discuss Sproutly’s patent-pending APP technology and how this scientific breakthrough could transform the cannabis beverage industry, as well as his role as Chief Science Officer in the company.
Listen to the podcast:
Dr. Arup Sen, PhD, has an impressive background prior to joining Sproutly, with over thirty-five years in research and executive management in biotech and pharma companies.
In mentioning how he came to Sproutly, Dr. Sen told Investor Ideas, “About three years ago we got interested in cannabis plants, however the challenge was that all the biologically active molecules are oils, as opposed to the other stuff that we had worked with. So, we developed, and have a patent-pending process that is unique in that we are able to find and recover naturally water-soluble forms of these oils, kind of like cholesterol in our blood, the good and bad cholesterol, not free cholesterol or free oils.”
He went on say, “They are water soluble; that’s why they flow through the blood. With that discovery we embarked on a path of founding Infusion Biosciences, developed the technology further and were able to show that we could recover commercially feasible amounts of these unique naturally water-soluble forms of the entire plant/cannabinoid/terpene profile. This also exhibited an unusual feature which is expected only off of truly water-dissolved molecules, not formulated by emulsion or encapsulation, in that the truly water-soluble material, just like sugar and salt, go into our system rapidly, (hence fast onset for the cannabinoids and clear out from the system rapidly), so our offset time is less than an hour and half and most of them less than an hour. This is in sharp contrast to either free oil or all of the formulations that the industry has developed over the past couple of decades that formulate oil into water.
“This now positions us to be the only player that can truly make, what would be called ‘designer beverages,’ where cannabis components are one component but we can add minerals, we can add anti-oxidants and we can add vitamins to really create functionality in the beverage and have controlled dosage.”
Dr. Sen went on to discuss how the cannabis plant has been an aide in forcing innovation in the biotech, pharma and science fields, saying “We have a huge opioid crisis, we know that. After having been in the development of molecules from natural and artificial sources for 45 years, I can think of no better plant then cannabis to come up with the molecules that will actually address the opioid crisis safely. The plant provides the means of reward for scientists to come up with technologies that can eventually have the dream of finding something that is going to truly address some critical issues that human society faces globally. Both the unique features, good and bad of the cannabis plant forces innovation.”
