Brief Summary:
This single center, prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized two parts study (part I and part II) will assess the safety of topical cream (3% CBD and 3% THC), applied twice daily (bid), in healthy subjects, for up to 6 treatment weeks and additional 2 follow-up weeks.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Safety Study for Future Treatment of Psoriasis Drug: OWC MGC cream Drug: OWC Control Cream Phase 1

Detailed Description:

The study is divided into 2 stages. Healthy subjects will be consented to participate in the study.

Part I is designed to evaluate the single dose safety assessment of single application of MGC cream in 26 healthy volunteers (intact skin) for up to 24 consecutive hours under admission conditions in the clinical site. In this stage, the subjects will be divided into 3 application doses.

The following procedures will be performed:

  • Time point 0- IV line, BP, Heart Rate, Blood testing (chemistry, blood count, Cannabinoids) and clinician evaluation of cannabis related psychological aspect (such as evaluation the cannabis abuse screening test).
  • Time point 6 Hours- BP, Heart Rate Blood testing (chemistry, blood count, Cannabinoids)
  • Time point 12- BP, Heart Rate, Blood testing (chemistry, blood count, Cannabinoids)
  • Time point 24- BP, Heart Rate, Blood testing (chemistry, blood count, Cannabinoids) and and clinician evaluation of cannabis related psychological aspect (such as evaluation the cannabis abuse screening test).

Part II that will be followed the 24 hours (of part I) is designed to evaluate the repeated applications safety of MGC cream in healthy volunteers for up to 6 weeks, both in the clinic and by subjects at home.

20 healthy subjects that will be treated twice daily with:

  • Maximal dose of 30 mg CBD : 30 mg THC, 1:1 ratio
  • Placebo Control - 0 mg CBD : 0 mg THC, 1:1 ratio (vehicle)

This stage will be initiated at least 96 hour after completion part I of the study (washout period) .The placebo will be applied on one arm and the control on the second arm. Both, subject and investigator will be blinded as to the product/placebo allocation.

Application at home will be performed twice a day. Subjects will be asked to attend the clinic on day 0 of the part II treatment, once a week during the 6 weeks of daily application and 2 weeks post application. In each visit the following evaluations will be performed: BP, Heart Rate, Blood testing (chemistry, blood count, Cannabinoids) and clinician of cannabis related psychological aspect (such as evaluation the cannabis abuse screening test).

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Alanine aminotransferase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase and bilirubin <=1.5xupper limit of normal (ULN) (isolated bilirubin >1.5xULN is acceptable if bilirubin is fractionated and direct bilirubin <35%).
  • Healthy as determined by a responsible and experienced physician, based on a medical evaluation including medical history, physical examination, laboratory tests and electrocardiogram (ECGs).
  • A subject with a clinical abnormality or laboratory parameters outside the reference range for the population being studied may be included only if the Investigator and the OWC Medical Monitor agree that the finding is unlikely to introduce additional risk factors and will not interfere with the study procedures.
  • Subjects with hemoglobin (Hb) values higher than ULN the normal range should always be excluded from enrollment.
  • A female subject is eligible to participate if she is of non-childbearing potential (postmenopausal or pre-menopausal females with a documented tubal ligation or hysterectomy). Females on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and whose menopausal status is in doubt will be required to use one of the contraception methods in the protocol.
  • Male subjects with female partners of child-bearing potential must agree to use one of the contraception methods listed in the protocol.
  • Agree not to participate in any other interventional clinical trials during the study
  • Agree to follow study instructions meticulously

Exclusion Criteria:

  • A positive pre-study Hepatitis B surface antigen or positive Hepatitis C antibody result within 3 months of screening.
