GW has established a world leading position in the development of plant-derived cannabinoid therapeutics through its proven drug discovery and development processes, intellectual property portfolio and regulatory and manufacturing expertise.
GW successfully developed the world’s first prescription medicine derived from the cannabis plant, which is now approved in numerous countries outside of the United States for the treatment of spasticity due to multiple sclerosis.
GW is also developing a liquid formulation of purified cannabidiol (CBD), also known as Epidiolex® in the US, (investigational only and not approved for use at this time) for the treatment of seizures in certain rare and severe early-onset, drug-resistant epilepsy syndromes.
The company has a deep pipeline of additional clinical stage cannabinoid product candidates for both orphan and non-orphan indications with a particular focus on neurological conditions.
GW Pharmaceuticals was founded in 1998 and is listed on the NASDAQ Global Market (GWPH). The company has operations in both the US and the UK.
