Coca-Cola 'in talks' over cannabis-infused drinks

September 17, 2018

Coca-Cola is best known for its eponymous caffeine-based drink, but the firm now appears to be experimenting with a different drug: cannabis.

According to Canada's BNN Bloomberg, the drinks giant is in talks with local producer Aurora Cannabis about developing marijuana-infused beverages.

These would not aim to intoxicate consumers but to relieve pain.

The firm declined to comment but said it was watching the cannabis drinks market closely.

"Along with many others in the beverage industry, we are closely watching the growth of non-psychoactive cannabidiol as an ingredient in functional wellness beverages around the world," Coca-Cola said in a statement.

Corona beer firm pours $4bn into weed

Cannabis debate: What you need to know

Cannabidiol, a constituent of cannabis, can help ease inflammation, pain and cramping, but has no psychoactive effect.

It comes as Canada prepares to follow certain US states in legalising cannabis for recreational use, after years of permitting it for medicinal purposes.

It has given rise to a large pot growing industry and some high-profile partnerships.

Earlier this year, beer giant Molson Coors Brewing said it would make cannabis-infused drinks with Hydropothecary, while Corona-beer maker Constellation Brands invested $4bn more into pot firm Canopy Growth.

A partnership between Coke and Aurora would mark the first entry of a major manufacturer of non-alcoholic drinks into the market.

'Recovery drink' 🍃

Quoting unnamed sources, BNN Bloomberg said Coca-Cola was in "serious talks" with Aurora but no deal had been finalised.

"They're pretty advanced down the path" of doing a deal, one source was quoted as saying.

"It's going to be more of the 'recovery drink' category," the source added.

Aurora, in a separate statement, said it would not discuss business development initiatives until they were finalised, but added: "Aurora has expressed specific interest in the infused beverage space, and we intend to enter that market."

Coca-Cola's shares rose marginally in early trade on Monday.

Scottish woman who feels no pain and heals without scars might help create novel painkillers

Jo Cameron, a 71-year-old Scottish woman, has lived all her life without the sensation of physical pain. Although what you might think at first glance, living without feeling pain comes with its own challenges and problems. For instance, the woman has suffered numerous burns and cuts, which often inflicted more damage than they should have. Sometimes, Cameron would realize her skin was burning only after she smelled fumes coming out of her flesh. But luckily Cameron possesses another superman trait: she heals quickly and often with very little or no scarring at all. In a new study, scientists have found that these traits are due to a newly identified genetic mutation — one that could pave the way for new treatments.

‘X-woman’

Cameron’s extraordinary abilities first came to doctors’ attention when, only a few years ago, she sought treatment for a hip injury. Her hip proved to have severe arthritis and required replacing. Immediately doctors knew something was off since Cameron’s disease should have caused her immense discomfort, which wasn’t the case. After two painless surgeries, doctors decided they should investigate more closely this unique patient.

“We had banter before theatre when I guaranteed I wouldn’t need painkillers,” the woman told BBC News, recounting the moment her doctors couldn’t believe she wouldn’t need painkillers after her surgery.

“When he found I hadn’t had any, he checked my medical history and found I had never asked for painkillers.”

Doctors at Raigmore Hospital, Inverness, ran some tests on her finding that the woman had almost no pain response. She could even eat Scotch bonnet chillis, which are famous for being extremely hot, without so much as flinching.

Cameron was then referred to experts in pain genetics at the University College London and the University of Oxford who identified two mutations that may be linked to her pain sensitivity and healing ability. One is a mutation that affects a gene called FAAH (Fatty Acid Amide Hydrolase), which plays a major role in regulating the body’s endocannabinoid system — a family of endogenous ligands, receptors, and enzymes that are important in pain, memory, and mood. The endocannabinoid system is also the target of compounds in cannabis which provoke a ‘high’ or ‘buzz’ once they are ingested.

The second mutation targets a gene which previously had no apparent useful purpose. The new research, however, shows that this mutation switches the FAAH gene on or off. In the case of Cameron, the gene’s activity is switched off, the authors reported in the British Journal of Anaesthesia.

These mutations may explain why Cameron doesn’t feel physical pain or heals so quickly. What’s more, there may also be some psychological effects. For instance, Cameron scored zero on clinical tests for anxiety and depression. She says she never panics or loses her cool — not even when she was in a recent car accident.

But despite her rare condition, Cameron says that she would have preferred to feel pain.

“Pain is there for a reason, it warns you – you hear alarm bells.”

“It would be nice to have warning when something’s wrong – I didn’t know my hip was gone until it was really gone, I physically couldn’t walk with my arthritis.”  :(

Scientists hope to translate the findings into novel drugs that annihilate the pain response. Right now, half of the patients recovering from surgery still experience pain despite taking strong painkillers. In the future, researchers hope to study other people with the same kind of mutations. In 2013, ZME Science wrote about a similar case — that of Ashlyn Blocker, a normal looking American teenager from a small town called Patterson, GA.

“People with rare insensitivity to pain can be valuable to medical research as we learn how their genetic mutations impact how they experience pain, so we would encourage anyone who does not experience pain to come forward,” Dr. James Cox, of UCL, told the BBC.

“We hope that with time, our findings might contribute to clinical research for post-operative pain and anxiety, and potentially chronic pain, PTSD and wound healing.”

What other medicines have these monsters kept from us?

For decades, CBD oil from the cannabis plant was illegal, research was banned and doctors who used it were persecuted.

Tens of thousands are in jail today for possessing the raw plant material.

Now, finally it's legal in all 50 states.

What "monsters" am I talking about?

The FDA, Big Pharma, Congress and the captive news media which will sing any song they're paid to sing.

My first thought was about the suppression and elimination of the EV-1.

The phenomenon described here is why there will NEVER be a "cure for cancer." Too much money and collateral businesses relies on their NOT being one.

True. The profit motive has completely corrupted the health care vocations in the USA. 👎
