Relevium’s Biocannabix Positions Itself as an Important Player in Colombia as it Pursues Endo-Medical Cannabis Strategy for Latin America
MONTREAL, June 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Relevium Technologies Inc. a Health and Wellness portfolio company listed on TSX.V: “RLV”, OTCQB: “RLLVF” and Frankfurt: “6BX” (the “Company” or “Relevium”) announced today it is positioning itself as an important player in the Colombian medical cannabis market by cementing medical and research relationships in the country in order to establish clinical validation programs for its Endo Nutraceutical Supplements (ENS) and Oral Nutritional Supplements.
On June 13th, 2019, the Company announced a binding LOI to acquire LifeLine Pharma SAS, a binding agreement to acquire the shares of Lifeline Pharma SAS, a Cali based cultivation and extraction business in the burgeoning agro-pharma market in Colombia. With a much lower cost of production, a robust commercial and legal framework and a culture that is open to Phyto therapeutic medicine, Colombia is quickly becoming a global center of medical cannabis supply and it is forecasted that the Country will be looking to supply as much as 44% of the World’s demand.
“This is a major strategic step in the development of our Phyto therapeutic biopharma business” stated Aurelio Useche, CEO of Relevium Technologies.
The Company’s subsidiary, Biocannabix Health Corporation, is a vertically integrated medical cannabis company with strategic positioning in three major markets: Canada, Latin America and Europe.
The company’s operations in Montreal allows Biocannabix to leverage leading edge scientific and research platforms as well as government incentives in the province of Quebec. The recent acquisition of LifeLine in Colombia allows the company to leverage lower costs of cultivation and processing as well as to manage its own genetics for the production of targeted Phyto therapeutic formulations. Colombia, Canada and Germany combined are central to the clinical validation program for the ENS and ONS products that will be offered in all three markets.
