An increasing number of working groups are engaged in the development of cannabis-based medicines. In doing so, a number of special features relevant for development projects with herbal medicinal products are often not sufficiently taken into account. Such peculiarities already arise in early development phases and can, in the worst case, lead to projects failing in late development phases. This webinar aims to provide an overview of all aspects relevant in the context of such development projects. In particular, it is intended to provide the tools needed to deal with the special features that arise from the fact that herbal active ingredients are multi-component mixtures. At the same time, risks but also opportunities (e.g. with regard to IP protection) in such development projects are intended to be highlighted.
