Investment summary

Medlab’s proprietary platform, NanoCelle, is a patented nanomicellar formulation that can improve the delivery of drugs. Medlab’s lead product is NanaBis, a combination of THC and CBD (1:1) cannabinoids encapsulated in NanoCelle particles, which enable a convenient buccal spray formulation. A recent breakthrough was Medlab’s announcement that it had successfully produced a synthetic version of NanaBis, which will allow it to move away from a botanical extract. Once the product reformulation is completed, NanaBis will re-enter clinical development (potentially Phase III) as a fully synthetic, non-opioid pain relief drug aimed at a vast market. Using NanoCelle delivery technology, Medlab is also expanding beyond cannabinoids and is pursuing several small and large molecule programmes (including a non-invasive mRNA COVID-19 vaccine).

Industry outlook

There is a growing consensus in the medical community that medicinal cannabis has a place in chronic pain management. With the opioid crisis unravelling, we believe support for non-opioid pain killers from various stakeholders will only grow.
