An anonymous director reports


Avicanna Inc. has entered into an exclusive licence and supply agreement with an established South American pharmaceutical company to commercialize up to four of Avicanna's proprietary cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical preparations.

The intellectual property related to Avicanna's proprietary cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical preparations was originally developed through the company's well-established drug delivery platform and further studied through various Canadian research collaborations where the formulations demonstrated stability and bioavailability. The pharmaceutical form of these formulations was then manufactured in Colombia, through the company's global vertical integration, where the cannabinoid raw material is also sourced from the company's cultivation and extraction infrastructure.

Through the licence and supply agreement, Avicanna will licence the company's intellectual property and supply finished pharmaceutical products starting initially with its proprietary 10 per cent cannabidiol oral preparation. In connection with the partnership Avicanna can earn up to $1.3-million in initial licensing fees through achieving near-term milestones.
