NEW YORK, Aug. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (“AXIM Biotech,” “AXIM” or “the Company”) (OTCQB: AXIM), a world leader in cannabinoid research and development, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a Notice of Allowance for a patent (Application No. 16/293,136) on anti-microbial compositions comprising cannabinoids, specifically cannabigerol (CBG). The USPTO granted this patent allowance from AXIM’s patent application filed on March 5, 2019.
All products that AXIM has the opportunity to produce under this patent will be made using CBG, a strong anti-microbial agent.

AXIM intends to develop future products under this patent in an aerosol form and foot powder for easy application. Other products with different anti-microbial applications are also considered for development under this patent.

Huemoeller II, Chief Executive Officer of AXIM® Biotech. “We look forward to continuing to lead cannabis innovation with this patent and future patents as the industry advances both in market growth and legitimacy.”
