Avicanna Inc. ("Avicanna" or the "Company") (TSX: AVCN) (OTCQX: AVCNF) (FSE: 0NN), a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development, manufacturing, and commercialization of plant-derived cannabinoid-based products, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a partnership with an established Argentine pharmaceutical company to register and commercialize Avicanna's proprietary cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical preparations through the licensing of its intellectual property and supply of its active pharmaceutical ingredients ("API").

Through the partnership Avicanna will provide a non-exclusive license of the Company's intellectual property related to its proprietary 10% cannabidiol ("CBD") pharmaceutical drug preparation. Additionally, the partner will source its pharmaceutical-grade CBD exclusively from Avicanna to manufacture the product for the registration and marketing authorization with the Argentine regulatory agency ANMAT.

The marketing authorization of the pharmaceutical preparation is expected to be approved during the second half of 2022 and is expected to be supported with claims related to treatment of epilepsy. The estimated patient population and market potential for epilepsy in Argentina is between 400,000 to 500,000 patients of which about 20,000 patients have refractory epilepsy. "We look forward to entering the Argentine market through a pharmaceutical pathway and to be doing so by delivering our proprietary formulations as solution to patients with unmet medical needs. We are rapidly expanding into the region with innovative and accessible cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical products and are doing so through partnership with reputable industry leaders," stated Lucas Nosiglia, President of Avicanna LATAM.

The advanced formulary is marketed with consumer, patient and medical community education and training.

  • Pharmaceutical Pipeline: Leveraging Avicanna's scientific platform, vertical integration, and real-world evidence, Avicanna has created a pipeline of patent-pending drug candidates which are indication-specific and in various stages of clinical development and commercialization. These cannabinoid-based drug candidates provide solutions for unmet medical needs in the areas of dermatology, chronic pain, and various neurological disorders. Avicanna's first pharmaceutical preparation (Trunerox) is in the drug registration stage in South America.
  • Cannabis Raw Materials, Seeds, and Bulk Formulations: Marketed under the Aureus™ brand, the Company's raw material business has successfully completed sales to 11 countries. Aureus offers cannabis dried flower, standardized seeds, full spectrum extracts, and cannabinoid distillates, isolated cannabinoids (CBD, THC, cannabigerol ("CBG") and other rare cannabinoids), and bulk formulations derived from hemp and cannabis cultivars through its sustainable, economical, and industrial-scale subsidiaries based in Colombia.
