The big news here is the company’s patent for “Combination of Opioids and N-Acylethanolamines for pain treatment” getting approval from IP Australia. This is worth noting, as the opioid market was valued at $22.8 billion in 2022.
Oz Adler, CEO of SciSparc, said the following about the patent news:
“The fact that SciSparc’s number of granted patents continues to grow is proof recognizing the innovation that characterizes the technologies in the Company’s pipeline. In this case, our unique technology allows us to harness the ability to treat pain through opioids while using significantly lower concentrations than those used on the market today and allows us to continue to fulfill our promise to offer both effective and safe treatments.”

On Penny Stocks and Low-Volume Stocks: With only the rarest exceptions, InvestorPlace does not publish commentary about companies that have a market cap of less than $100 million or trade less than 100,000 shares each day. That’s because these “penny stocks” are frequently the playground for scam artists and market manipulators.
