Ovation Science Strengthens IP Protection with New US Patent

Patent Protection Until 2041 Awarded for Transdermal Creams Formulated with CBD and THC

VANCOUVER, BC and LAS VEGAS – (CSE: OVAT) (OTCQB: OVATF) – Ovation Science Inc. (“Ovation” or the “Company”), a topical and transdermal cannabis product development company with a patented skin delivery technology Invisicare®, is pleased to announce that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has granted Ovation a patent entitled “Composition and Method for Transdermal Delivery of Cannabidiol (CBD) and 9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)”; (US Patent Number: 11,439,602), with an expiry of February 2041.

This patent is a significant achievement for the Company’s R&D department which uses pharmaceutical drug development methods to optimize the transdermal delivery of topical cannabis products.  The patent covers the Company’s innovative transdermal creams formulated with a combination of CBD and THC and delivered by its proprietary drug delivery system Invisicare®.  It protects both the composition as well as a method for formulating a transdermal delivery composition based on a desired ratio of CBD to THC through skin tissue. Ovation has also filed for similar patent protection in Canada.

“The granting of this patent helps solidify our position in the marketplace with products that cannot be duplicated by competitors,” said Terry Howlett, CEO of Ovation Science. “Ovation Science has been developing highly effective products which has led to high consumer satisfaction and a number of awards. In conjunction with our trade secrets, this patent will further protect these formulations.” He added, “We have proven that our transdermal delivery method is more effective than other topical products on the market and more efficient than edibles (gummies, etc.) or inhalation (smoking or vaping) as it has better absorption; avoiding “first-pass” through the liver.  First-pass increases the delivery time and makes less CBD:THC available than Ovation’s formulations.” 

Ovation recently announced it has made notable progress in expanding the availability of its products after adding a licensee for four states (Oklahoma, Missouri, New Mexico and Mississippi).  (September 7th, 2022), bringing the total number of Ovation licensed states to five. This includes Nevada where Ovation’s products have been awarded top topical sales status since their launch. Total estimated number of licensed dispensaries in these five states is over 2,800. Ovation continues to seek additional licensee for other US states, Canada and Europe.

Ovation leverages its expertise in the pharmaceutical industry to develop highly effective, proprietary products. What makes Ovation’s products different from any other topical cannabis products on the market is its superior delivery of CBD / THC and other cannabinoids using its proprietary skin delivery technology Invisicare®. Invisicare has over twenty years of research and development in the pharmaceutical industry; specifically, dermatology. Ovation formulates two types of topicals; ones that remain on the skin to deal with “skin issues” and transdermal creams that allow the CBD (cannabidiol), and/or the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and other cannabinoids to be absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream. Studies show Ovation’s products have a 10 times greater release of CBD to the skin and over 5 times greater penetration compared to other products tested.
