InvestorNewsBreaks – 180 Life Sciences Corp. (NASDAQ: ATNF) Announces the Filing of a Provisional Patent Describing the Combination of CBD With GLP-1 Agonists to Suppress Appetite

180 Life Sciences (NASDAQ: ATNF), a clinical-stage biotechnology company, today announced the filing of a provisional patent describing the novel combination of cannabidiol (“CBD”), or an analog thereof, with glucagon related peptide-1 (“GLP-1”) agonists to address obesity and weight management. Co-administration of CBD, a known appetite suppressant and antiemetic, might be expected both to limit the harmful side effects and lower the effective dosage of the GLP-1 agonists. “We are excited about the opportunity to collaborate with scientists who are experts in vagus nerve signaling,” said Dr. James Woody, CEO of 180 Life Sciences. “We expect, if the hypothesis is correct, this research could provide support to proceed to human clinical trials. Our Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Jonathan Rothbard was involved in the amylin discovery work of the GLP-1 pathway and has extensive scientific knowledge of how synthetic CBD compounds might induce satiety through stimulating the vagus nerve.”
