HempStreet inks collaboration with MGC Pharma to launch nutraceutical mouth spray

‘ArtemiC’ is a nutraceutical mouth spray that helps in recovering from severe COVID-19 symptoms

New Delhi-based startup HempStreet, India’s first research to retail medicinal cannabis venture, has launched ArtemiC, a nutraceutical mouth spray to speed up recovery for patients with severe COVID-19 symptoms. ArtemiC has been launched in collaboration with MGC Pharma, a company with which HempStreet announced a partnership earlier this year. Headquartered in the UK, MGC Pharma is a pharmaceuticals company working on polyherbal formulations based on cannabis and other phytopharmaceuticals.

HempStreet, through its collaboration with MGC Pharma, aims to create and bring to market phytopharma products to tackle mass ailments. With ArtemiC, the companies expect to reduce the symptoms of long COVID-19, which still affects more than 15 million people in India. 

ArtemiC, includes four natural-based ingredients consisting of Curcumin, Boswellia serrata, Artemisinin and Vitamin C. ArtemiC Rescue and ArtemiC Support are the two variations of this product that will be available via medical practitioners and leading pharmacies. ArtemiC Rescue is an adjunctive treatment for the symptoms of COVID-19, whereas ArtemiC Support is a daily supplement that does not contain artemisinin.

According to the double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical research findings, ArtemiC may minimise the severity of symptoms of COVID-19. In addition, the clinical trial demonstrated a significant reduction in one of the primary inflammatory markers related to COVID-19, C-reactive protein (CRP), an acute inflammatory protein that increases up to 1,000-fold at sites of infection or inflammation.
