“The worldwide market for smokeless tobacco addiction is a multi-billion dollar sector, providing a life-changing treatment to people around the world,” stated Joseph Dowling, CEO of CV Sciences. “CV Sciences’ developmental efforts surrounding CBD and nicotine have the potential to alter healthcare with a safe, natural method to reducing addiction to harmful substances. Japan Patent Office’s patent grant further validates our first-of-its-kind treatment and positions the company to meet the medical needs of millions of patients globally.”

CV Sciences’ initial drug candidate (CVSI-007) contains nicotine and CBD to support the cessation of smokeless tobacco use and addiction. With the Japan Patent Office’s formal grant of the patent, the company will further development efforts and continue to seek approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to commercialize the world’s first and only FDA-approved treatment for smokeless tobacco addiction.

Smokeless tobacco such as chewing tobacco, moist snuff or inhaled through the nose,  contains nicotine and many harmful, cancer-causing chemicals. Using it can lead to nicotine addiction and can cause cancers of the mouth, esophagus and pancreas, says the National Cancer Institute. It may also cause heart disease, gum disease, and other health problems.
