We see tremendous opportunity to lead the cannabis-based wellness product sector, a category with untapped potential to meet consumer needs using natural, innovative ingredients with proven scientific results.” comments Andrés Galofre, VP Marketing and Sales at Khiron.

This CBD product line will provide women and men with a full collection of medicinal skin care solutions for each stage of their daily skincare routine, from early morning through to pre-sleep. The first wellness product is anticipated by Q4 2018, with initial distribution in Colombia, and commercialization potential across Latin America.

“We are very pleased with the progress made by our wellness business unit towards bringing quality, trusted medically and scientifically validated cannabis-based personal care products to consumers in Colombia and Latin America. We see outstanding growth potential in this area, backed by our growing reputation as the medical cannabis leader in Colombia, and across the region.” says Alvaro Torres, CEO of Khiron Life Sciences Corp.
