SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Innovus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Innovus Pharma” or the “Company”) (OTCQB Venture Market: INNV), an emerging commercial-stage pharmaceutical company that delivers safe, innovative and effective over-the-counter medicine and consumer care products to improve men’s and women's health and respiratory diseases, today announced that it plans to expand its product line into the hemp-derived CBD (“Cannabinoid”) oil-based products market beginning in the fourth quarter 2018 with the introduction of MZS Sleeping Aid™, a supplement in tincture form delivering a 3 mg dose of melatonin per serving that incorporates either 100 or 250 mg of hemp-derived CBD oil. The product is intended to be sold as a supplement in the U.S. and eventually, pending regulatory approval, into the Canadian market. Innovus is also interested in expanding into other products using hemp-derived CBD oil that can benefit its customers in both countries and in other markets throughout the world.
MZS Sleeping Aid™ is currently expected to be launched in states in the U.S. where hemp-derived CBD products may be sold. The product to be launched will not contain any THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and is designed to be compliant with applicable U.S. state and federal laws.
“We are very excited to be expanding into the hemp-derived CBD oil-based product market with the commercialization of this melatonin product that includes CBD oil intended for persons to improve their sleep,” said Dr. Bassam Damaj, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Innovus Pharma. “The successful commercialization of this product will hopefully lead to our development of more products utilizing hemp-derived CBD oil-based ingredients. By developing and commercializing such products, we believe we are expanding our product offerings to provide our customers with a CBD alternative to realizing and achieving their healthcare goals.”
