Cannabis Stock News: Khiron (TSXV: KHRN) (OTCQX: KHRNF) Becomes First Company to Sell Medical Cannabis in Peru, and Surpasses 3,000 Prescriptions in Colombia

 

TORONTO - September 24, 2020 (Investorideas.com Newswire) 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, announced that it has filled the first prescriptions of full spectrum, high CBD medical cannabis to patients in Peru. This comes following authorization from DIGEMID, Peru's drug regulatory authority, and expands sales of Khiron's medical cannabis to a second jurisdiction in Latin America, following established sales in Colombia, where over 3,000 prescriptions have been filled to date.

"After completing successfully all export, import and distribution requirements to bring our approved high CBD medical cannabis products into Peru, we are now very proud to begin sales and give patients greater access to medical cannabis therapies in order to improve significantly their quality of life," comments Luis Marquez, Khiron Peru Country Manager.

In Peru, only registered pharmaceutical establishments that have received Good Storage Practices (GSP) certification and licenses to import and commercialize medical cannabis are authorized to participate in the wholesale import and commercialization of cannabis products. Khiron Peru is a GSP certified, registered pharmaceutical establishment, and Farmacia Universal has all required permits and licenses, including Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certification, to prepare magistral preparations with medical cannabis and distribute final products to patients through pharmacies under the previously announced agreement with Khiron.

"At Khiron we continue to execute on our stated strategy to deliver quality medical cannabis products to patients and to improve the quality of their lives. In a short period of time, and despite a global pandemic, we have filled over 3,000 medical cannabis prescriptions in Colombia, and today we are pleased to expand that reach, filling our first patient prescriptions in Peru, an important market of 32 million people," comments Alvaro Torres, Khiron CEO and director.

Additionally, quotas for Khiron's high THC medical cannabis product in Peru have also been approved by DIGEMID, with first patient prescriptions anticipated to be filled in Q4 2020.

Farmacia Universal S.A.C. is a well-known Peruvian pharmacy chain. The company operates ten locations in Lima and is a leader in the pharmaceutical preparations sector in Peru. In addition to selling pharmaceutical, surgical and orthopedic products, among others, the company differentiates its brand with premium service to customers and patients.
