AVICANNA ENTERS MASTER SUPPLY AGREEMENT WITH CHILEAN PHARMACEUTICAL PIONEER KNOP LABORATORIOS S.A.
Avicanna Inc., through its majority-owned subsidiary Santa Marta Golden Hemp (SMGH), has entered into a master supply agreement with established Chilean pharmaceutical company Knop Laboratorios SA to supply a range of cannabinoid-based active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) for the manufacturing and commercialization of proprietary cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical products in Latin America.
Since 2018, Avicanna and Knop have developed a collaborative enterprise which has led to commercial imports of Avicannas API, including cannabidiol and tetrahydrocannabinol, which has been used in the development, production and commercialization of several cannabinoid-based products. Through this master supply agreement between SMGH and Knop, the two companies are further fortifying their commitments to a fruitful partnership and preparing for industrialization of Knop's cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals manufactured using Avicanna's organic, sustainable inputs.
