RAMM Pharma Corp. (including its wholly owned subsidiaries, the “Company” or “RAMM”) (CSE:RAMM), a leader in plant-derived cannabinoid pharmaceutical products, welcomes the announcement by Brazil’s National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) which establishes a legalized environment for the sale and consumption of cannabis for medical use, as announced on December 2, 2019. The new regulations will be posted to the Federal Official Gazette in the coming days and will take effect 90 days thereafter. The regulations were approved unanimously as outlined below:

  • Medical cannabis products approved for sale by prescription through pharmacies and drug stores.
  • Permitted products are restricted to products for oral and nasal use, in tablet or liquid form, as well as oil solutions.
  • All cannabis oils and products must be imported in at least semi-prepared form; domestic cultivation continues to be prohibited.
  • Products must be manufactured in a facility that is Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certified.

RAMM is uniquely positioned as one of the only operators to have a Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) certified cannabis formulation facility currently in operation in South America. Since April 2018, ANVISA has permitted RAMM’s Epifractán® to be imported into Brazil as a cannabis-based product and prescribed by doctors to patients on compassionate grounds whereby the product is shipped directly to patients on a case-by-case basis. In June 2018, Epifractán® 2% became available for sale in 30ml format and a new 5% CBD concentration formula, Epifractán® 5%, in a 30ml format. The regulations announced on December 2, 2019 will allow for expanded distribution through the broader pharmacy and drug store networks.


“We are pleased with the continued evolution of cannabis regulations in South America and commend Brazil on their progressive regulations and focus on pharmaceutical quality, regulated products,” stated Jack Burnett, Chief Executive Officer. “RAMM is well positioned given our existing sales into Brazil and our GMP certified manufacturing facility which is ramping up production to meet the growing demand.”

RAMM’s state-of-the-art GMP certified facility is ideally situated within close proximity to an international airport and other export hubs. Uruguay is one of the only countries with the ability to ship both by ground or air to the Brazilian market. The facility totals approximately 36,600 sq.ft. and features dedicated cannabis and medical product laboratories along with packaging capabilities and storage/distribution facilities. In 2017 RAMM began producing registered cannabinoid pharmaceutical drugs and has been ramping up production to meet the increasing demand in South America. Brazil has a population of over 200 million and is part of Mercosur, a trade bloc which also includes Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay and Venezuela.
