Natural products are an excellent source of clinical compounds and are the basis for many biologically important molecules in drug discovery. Natural products, however, are not necessarily perfect as drugs, and can be structurally improved as compounds for drug development. PureForm BioSciences recognizes the profound clinical potential of CBD and other cannabinoids, especially when these compounds are combined in unique formulations and delivered by novel systems and devices.
In the modern world, science and medicine are advancing by leaps and bounds, with tremendous potential for growth and discovery. However, nature remains the ultimate chemist. From plants to microorganisms, nearly half of currently available pharmaceuticals were originally derived from natural sources. Medicine has along taken inspiration from the natural world - Aspirin was derived from white willow tree bark, Morphine from poppies. Coumadin came from clover, and the Rosy Periwinkle led to Vinblastine, which has made previously deadly Hodgkins Lymphoma both treatable and curable. The same plant produced Vincristine, which is used to treat childhood leukemia, while microbes are the key to a wide range of antibiotics and statins.
