Medical Marijuana & A Better Tomorrow

Medical Marijuana Sciences, Inc. (MMS), Nuvilex’s newest wholly-owned subsidiary, was established in early 2013 as a Nevada corporation.  The initial mission of MMS is to develop treatments, based on constituents of Cannabis, for two of the most serious and deadly forms of cancer, namely brain and pancreatic cancers.

Medical marijuana is defined as Cannabis or Cannabis constituentsused for medical, as opposed to recreational, purposes.  The “active” ingredients within the different types of Cannabis are collectively known as cannabinoids.  It is estimated that Cannabis contains about 70 different cannabinoids.  By far, the most well-known cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC.
