Khiron Life Sciences Corp. (“Khiron” or the “Company”) (TSXV: KHRN)(OTCQX: KHRNF)(Frankfurt: A2JMZC), a vertically integrated medical cannabis leader with core operations in Latin America and Europe, today announces regulatory and supply chain advances that accelerate Khiron’s entry into the Mexican market by several months. Leveraging the Company’s designation in Colombia as a National Strategic Project, Khiron Colombia SAS has received authorization to include Mexico as a destination country within its international export quota, with over 700 kg of high-THC extract now available for export to Mexico. In addition, the Company has finalized agreements for the manufacture of finished medical cannabis products in Mexico.
“Our goal is to improve the lives of 1 million patients by 2024, and Mexico remains a very important part of that plan. Thanks to our status as a National Strategic Project, Mexico is now a destination country within our international THC quota, which is expected to accelerate first sales by several months. In addition, we have secured a world class partner that will not only manufacture finished products on our behalf, but also assist with the import and export process. As we continue to advance our proven Zerenia™ clinic strategy in Mexico, we look forward to delivering our first products to patients in the coming months,” comments Alvaro Torres, CEO and Director.
Mexico represents a significant market for the Company, as a top 15 global economy with a population of nearly 130 million. To date, close to 550 LatAm physicians have obtained their diploma accrediting completion of Khiron’s medical education program, in partnership with Tecnologico de Monterrey, the leading university in Mexico.
