Khiron Life Sciences (TSXV: KHRN) announced after market close yesterday that it had entered into an exclusive agreement with that of Medlive, a Brazil-based pharmaceutical and health products distributor with a network of over 3,000 hospitals and clinics in Souther Brazil.

The exclusive agreement will see Medlive distribute Khiron’s medical cannabis products throughout its network of doctors office, clinics, government institutions, pharmacies and hospitals.

This initiative is to begin in the third quarter of 2020.

“Brazil represents one of the most important markets in Latin America, with its massive population and its acceptance of medical cannabis. Together with Medlive we are now positioned to begin educating health professionals and driving prescriptions for our medical cannabis products, and ultimately focus on our objective to help patients in Brazil who can benefit from medical cannabis. Medlive is recognized as an important medical marketing organization in the region and we could not have a better partner to help us achieve these goals.”
Alvaro Torres, CEO

Khiron initially received authorization from the Brazilian Health Regulatory Agency to export medical cannabis products to the country on February 7, 2020, which will be conducted on an individual patient-use basis. This authorization is significant, as Brazil represents the largest market in Latin America with a population in excess of 212 million. The medical cannabis market within the country is anticipated to grow to 3.4 million patients, with over 1,100 physicians now prescribing it to patients.

Khiron Life Sciences last traded at $0.61 on the TSX Venture.
