The big difference is natural source vs. synthetic cannabinoids. The link above is for a company developing synthetic cannabinoids unlike GW Pharmaceuticals Epidiolex that is sourced from naturally existing phytocannabinoids. From a patient and a researcher point of view, I would choose naturally sourced phytocannabinoids everytime over something synthesized in a lab. While isomers may be "interchangeable" with the real thing according to chemistry theory, in practical use isomers always present different properties amongst a group of individuals than do "authentic" or natural compounds. (i.e Cesamet is supposed to be interchangeable with Delta-9 THC: Try inhaling 4mg of THC, about one drag, from cannabis and then take a 4mg Cesamet and you tell me if it feels subjectively the same. No way.) Research and development has a long way to go with synthetic cannabinoids and first we need to understand the all the endocannabinoids and their receptors. Drugs like Rimonabant and the fatal French drug trial a few years ago shows that despite huge leaps in our understanding of cannabinoid science in recent years, we still have a long way to go. GW Pharmaceuticals has so far stuck to natural source formulations for very good reason.
