THE PHARMACEUTICAL APPROACH TO CANNABIS RESEARCH AND MEDICAL INNOVATION
A Physician’s decision to prescribe a new drug or even a natural health product has to be
based on Evidence-Based Medicine – A legal and ethical requirement.
§ Currently, no body of evidence exists to not support the prescription or recommendation of medical
marijuana in any medical condition, including terminal cancer. According to Canadian and USA drug
regulatory agencies, the is no evidence to support the safety and efficacy of marijuana for use in
the treatment of pain or any other indication.
§ TBP product development plan would provide the data necessary for drug regulatory agencies to grant
marketing approval and physicians to prescribe or recommend our products.
§ As cannabis becomes legalised across the globe the medical and scientific community would still
require pharmaceutical consumer drug products developed with proper research , data and protocol.
Insurance companies will only be able to cover the cost of products with Drug Identification Numbers.
§ TBP takes the natural aspects of medical cannabis and applies the science of pharma to develop
products that patients want , doctors want to prescribe and insurance companies will cover.

TBP invests significant time and capital into a continuous and sustainable pipe line
of products based on patient needs and driven by scientific R and D
