AUXLY'S SUBSIDIARY KGK SCIENCE RECEIVES INSTITUTIONAL CANNABIS RESEARCH LICENCE FROM HEALTH CANADA
Auxly Cannabis Group Inc.'s wholly owned subsidiary, KGK Science Inc., has received its institutional cannabis research licence from Health Canada pursuant to the Cannabis Act. In addition to the two project-specific cannabis research licences, and the licence to conduct sensory trials currently held by KGK, this institutional licence provides the contract research organization with approval to conduct multiple cannabis research projects, removing the need to obtain individual research licences for each project, thereby increasing its flexibility and expediting processes at its clinical research facility located in London, Ont.
As one of the first entities in Canada to receive this expanded licence, KGK will be able to provide its clients increased access to an expansive portfolio of clinical trials in support of the development of safe and effective cannabis products.
"As the cannabis industry continues to evolve and we sit on the cusp of some major regulatory changes, this institutional research licence allows us to increase the pace by which we can support the industry in ensuring the safety and efficacy of cannabis products to Canadian consumers," says KGK president and chief executive officer Najla Guthrie. "With KGK's in-depth expertise in the nutraceutical industry, our team of highly trained scientific researchers, and access to state-of-the-art technologies, KGK continues to be positioned to lead the cannabis industry in research as it moves into its next stage of growth."
