(PMBSD) Hemp-Derived-Cannabinoid-Based Non-Prescription Epilepsy Medication Nearly Ready

SCHOFIELD, Wis., Oct. 10, 2014  — PuraMed BioScience®, Inc., (OTCPink: PMBSD), a researcher, developer, and marketer of over-the-counter (OTC) medicinal and healthcare products, announced today that it is nearing the completion of development of its new non-prescription, hemp-based, homeopathic medication for treatment of epilepsy symptoms including seizures and seizure-related headaches.

Both epilepsy and migraines appear to be triggered by the same coritcal spreading depression (CSD) in the brain; the difference is the rate of reaction. This may be why many people who suffer from migraines are prescribed epilepsy medications.

The third most common neurological disorder in the US, epilepsy affects approximately 2.7 million people, with children and older adults being most susceptible. The condition also causes up to 50,000 sudden deaths each year.

Recent research has shown cannabidiol (CBD), one of the hemp-derived cannabinoids, to be an effective therapy in the treatment of epilepsy symptoms.

“By incorporating standardized hemp oil into our current patented, over-the-counter migraine relief formula, MigraPure, we believe we can offer relief to people who not only suffer with migraines, but also offer relief to people who have seizure-related headaches and other epilepsy-type symptoms,” said Russ Mitchell, CEO, PuraMed BioScience. “Due to the close association between migraine headaches and epilepsy, the development of a hemp-based treatment for epilepsy symptoms is a logical step for the Company to make. Hemp-based cannabinoids combined with our experience in building herbal medicines that outperform traditional allopathic treatments fit extremely well with our unique delivery systems and our business philosophy.”

About MigraPure Advanced Migraine Relief

MigraPure (clinically tested as LipiGesic M) is an advanced homeopathic feverfew and ginger gel formulation which has been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of migraine and migraine associated symptoms. MigraPure has an excellent safety profile and has no reported drug interactions. During the double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, participants who suffered acute migraine experienced relief (mild to no pain) in 64 percent of migraine occurrences.

MigraPure (f/k/a LipiGesic M) was also selected as one of 16 formulations and the only over-the-counter medication cited in an article co-authored by Dr. Roger Cady entitled, Advances in Drug Development for Acute Migraine. MigraPure was the only product described by Dr. Cady as “an excellent first-line therapy for very early intervention, as it is compatible with all other acute treatment options.” The article was published in Drugs, a top-tier medical journal.
