Valens GroWorks Corp. (CSE:VGW) (the “Company” or “Valens”), is pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU“) with the Bill Nelems Pain and Research Centre, operating the Okanagan Interventional Pain Clinic, to form a strategic alliance for the purpose of conducting clinical research and development of safe, efficacious and reliable pharmaceutical-grade medicinal cannabis products (CBD and THC combinations) specific for the treatment of particular conditions.

The Bill Nelems Pain and Research Centre (“BNPRC“) serves as the main referral pain centre for approximately 750,000 patients within the Interior Health region, as well as patients from the Northern Health region in British Columbia. This centre specializes in comprehensive pain care, including cutting-edge interventional options, and interdisciplinary pain management.
Tyler Robson, CEO of Valens stated, “It is a great honour to forge this alliance with BNPRC, and an opportunity to realize our vision as a high-science company at the forefront of the cannabis sector, and our objective towards becoming a leading purveyor of cannabis products and technologies.” Robson adds, “The collaboration of our scientists with front-line physicians fast-tracks the development of effective and reliable pharmaceutical-grade medicinal cannabis products to best serve prescribing physicians and their patients. The resulting formulations will platform an industry-leading Valens RX™ line of products with proven efficacy that doctors, and their patients, can rely on.”
Dr. Paul Etheridge, the Medical Director at the BNPRC commented, “Our doctors have been prescribing medicinal marijuana as an alternative to pharmaceutical drugs such as opioids for the treatment of various conditions, including the reduction of chronic pain and PTSD.” He continued, “It is however challenging to determine the effective combination of CBD and THC and other cannabinoids for treatment of patients and particular conditions. This collaboration provides us access to Valens’ high-level analytical testing capabilities and licensed capability to develop customized medicinal formulations from Cannabis plants.”
Dr, Rob O’Brien, President of Valens AgriTech Ltd and Chief Scientific Officer at Supra THC Services, Valens’ Health Canada licenced wholly-owned subsidiaries, added, “In order for Cannabis based products to be acceptable as medicines, physicians need to understand the complex relationship between a prescribed dose and how the Cannabis cannabinoids interact with the patient’s system. Our Center of Excellence in “Plant Based Medicine Analytics” possesses the advanced instrumentation and scientific expertise needed to measure cannabinoid metabolites as well as the patient’s biomarkers. This strategic alliance with front-line physicians will lead to an increased understanding of how Cannabis products interact with the human system and may provide physicians with a natural and effective alternative to opioids and other potentially harmful pharmaceuticals when treating chronic pain and related conditions.”
