BARRIE, Ontario, Nov. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MediPharm Labs Corp. (TSX: LABS) (OTCQX: MEDIF) (FSE: MLZ) (“MediPharm Labs” or the “Company”) a pharmaceutical company specialized in precision-based cannabinoids, is pleased to announce it has completed a medical cannabis export to Barbados in conjunction with strategic partner Avicanna (TSX: AVCN).
“Our GMP platform make us the go-to partner for companies looking to access global medical cannabis programs,” said Bryan Howcroft, CEO, MediPharm Labs. “As countries around the world continue to adopt medical cannabis programs, MediPharm Labs is best positioned to serve these markets as the only North American producer with a Drug Establishment License (GMP) for the extraction of natural cannabinoids.”
The Company has manufactured and delivered Avicanna RHO Phyto products for the medical community and patients in the Caribbean through Bryden Stokes, an established health and pharmaceutical product distributor in the region.
