Session Title: Exploring the Oral Delivery of Cannabinoids: Challenges, Approaches, and Solutions
Session Date: September 22, 2021
Session Time: 5:30 PM – 6:00 PM EDT
Abstract: With the rapid rise of cannabinoids for therapeutic purposes, various delivery routes have been used for pharmaceutical delivery. Although oral delivery is often preferred, complexities arise due to the nature of cannabis compounds being poorly-water soluble and often a substrate for first pass metabolism. This presentation will discuss these complications of cannabis compounds and formulation and delivery approaches to address them.
Key Learning Objectives:
- Learn about the physiochemical challenges of cannabionoids
- An overview of the first pass metabolic issues with cannabionoids
- Discover the options available for formulating cannabinoids
