Shares of Juva Life are rallying after the company provided updates on its JUVA-19 class of compounds development. JUVA-19 is a cannabis-derived, non-cannabinoid small molecule that features broad spectrum anti-inflammation properties. Early pre-clinical results have shown the compound to inhibit IL1-beta and TNF-alpha.

Through pre-clinical in vivo validation studies, the company plans to leverage its expertise in chemistry and anti-inflammation treatments to develop natural and semi-synthetic non-cannabinoid compounds derived from the cannabis plant. Over time, management seeks to partner with “leading pharma and consumer companies seeking anti-inflammatory bioactives for their product pipelines.”
Juva Life CEO, Doug Chloupek states, “We are pleased of the progress of our internal research and development activities.” Mr. Chloupek continues, “Our next steps are to build upon our initial findings by profiling the Juva-019 class of compounds in gold standard in-vivo models of inflammation, paving the way for evidenced-based product development.”
