Cannabis Science, Inc. (OTC PINK: CBIS), a U.S. company specializing in the development of cannabis-based medicines, was a featured guest on the long-running radio show, “Your Money’s Worth” on Friday, December 18th, where they discussed the efficacy of cannabis-based treatments, the company’s progress, and its strategy moving forward.
CEO Raymond C. Dabney was interviewed by radio host, Michael Bazsuly about the company and legal/societal progression of cannabis-based treatment initiatives. The company emphasized their strong focus in the pharmaceuticals market. Cannabis Science is working to run clinical trials and develop their formulas in Europe so they can bring well-developed and researched treatments to the FDA for clearance to sell as prescription medicine in U.S. markets.
“One of the things we do not condone is smoking the plant,” said Dabney. The company has consistently held a stern position against smoking marijuana, as there are much safer delivery methods than smoking. The company is working to determine the most effective delivery methods for each type of treatable ailment.
The company also addressed its current position in the stock dividend process. They are currently working directly with FINRA to deliver two separate stock dividends to shareholders. The first dividend is to be sent to shareholders of record as of December 31st, 2010 and the second is to be sent to shareholders of record as of October 9th, 2015. The preliminary filings and definitive filings have already been completed. The company stressed that it is doing everything within its power to expedite the dividend issuance. The company is answering questions and comments from FINRA as they come up. This is an on-going interaction, and the company hopes to finish the process as quickly as possible so it can issue the dividend.
