TORONTO, April 7, 2021 /CNW/ – Khiron Life Sciences Corp. (“Khiron” or the “Company”) (TSXV: KHRN) (OTCQX: KHRNF) (Frankfurt: A2JMZC), a vertically integrated cannabis leader with core operations in Latin America and Europe, is pleased to provide an operational update with regards to its supply of EU-GMP medical cannabis products to the UK. To help alleviate bottlenecks and stock outs, the Company has established an offshore inventory of dried flower, for the express purpose of serving UK patients.
Furthermore, the Company is broadening its product portfolio by introducing Khiron 1/14, a high-CBD flower to the UK in Q2/21. This follows a successful launch in Germany, where it is prescribed for indications such as anxiety, substance use disorder, and migraines. Khiron 1/14 will complement Khiron 20/1, a high-THC flower, which is already being prescribed to patients in the UK. Prescribing specialists will also be able to prescribe smaller quantities of our flower products in 5- gram jars (pictured below), thanks to enhanced capabilities at the Company’s EU-GMP certified fulfillment partner.
Tejinder Virk, President of Khiron Europe, commented, “The European market is growing and Khiron is well positioned through our differentiated education platform, mounting clinical evidence, and EU-GMP certified products ready for prescription. Our team continues to work diligently to increase patient access to medical cannabis products, and patients will now benefit through greater product variety and volumes. In the coming months, we plan to introduce additional cannabis-based medical products from our registered Colombian strains, elevating the level of clinical data available to medical professionals in the UK.”
