Elmsford, NY, Sept. 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NanoVibronix, Inc., (NASDAQ: NAOV), a healthcare device company that produces the UroShield® and PainShield® Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Portable Ultrasonic Therapeutic Devices, today announced it is launching a new, transdermal gel containing Nano-Cannabidiol (CBD) for the treatment of joint pain and reducing inflammation.
Brian Murphy, CEO of NanoVibronix, stated, “Adding CBD gel to our portfolio of products should materially expand our target market to augment our PainShield line of products while creating an additional stream of revenue for our business. Increasingly, CBD products have been shown to provide a short-term solution to pain resolution, coupled with the reparative, long-term mechanisms of action of PainShield. We are working with a licensed, experienced CBD manufacturer to try to bring this product to market by the first quarter 2022 with widespread availability in the U.S. expected by mid-2022. Including a CBD-based product is a natural extension of our pain management lineup, providing consumers with a complementary product for the treatment of pain caused by inflammation and other common ailments such as arthritis. CBD will be a natural add-on to our over-the-counter PainShield product.”
PainShield CBD is a fast-drying gel with functional ingredients including nano particle-cannabidiol (CBD), with a dry feel, to not impede our PainShield transducer. CBD used in this new product will be sourced from High Purity Natural Products, LLC, an FDA-registered manufacturer of hemp and CBD products with operations in the U.S. High Purity’s CBD is manufactured in accordance with cGMP guidelines and encapsulated to increase bioavailability and deliver more therapeutic value per dose compared with non-encapsulated CBD.
