Zynerba stock rebounds after selloff driven by failed cannabis-based skin patch trial

Shares of Zynerba Pharmaceuticals Inc. rose 7% in Friday trade, recouping some of their prior-session losses that came after the company said an early-stage trial of a cannabinoid skin patch failed to meet its main goals.

Zynerba ZYNE, +6.00% , which is developing cannabis-based therapies for rare neurospsychiatric disorders, said the trial of ZYN001, which delivers tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) through a transdermal patch, did not achieve its goal of target blood levels of 5 to 14 ng/ml THC in healthy volunteers. THC is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis and the company was trying to find a way to deliver it without patients having to take it orally, which can make them high.
