Khiron Life Sciences Corp. (TSXV:KHRN), a Canadian integrated medical cannabis company with its core operations in Colombia, announced today that it has received endorsements and signed co-operation agreements with two of the largest and most recognized medical associations in the country: The Colombian Association of Internal Medicine (ACMI) and the Colombian Association of Neurology (ACN). As a result, Khiron becomes the first medical cannabis company in Colombia to be endorsed by two medical associations and to be in a position to directly introduce its brand to a national audience of almost 3,000 doctors.

The co-operation agreements with the associations will allow Khiron to provide doctors with direct access to a rich repository of information, support and learning resources about extract-based medical cannabis products. In addition, these resources will enable doctors to receive professional training support on prescribing medical cannabis to their patients through Khiron’s e-learning platform and academic events in the main cities of Colombia during 2018.


“We are proud to receive the endorsements of these prestigious medical associations and look forward to working closely with their members to support their professional development goals around the use of medical cannabis as a treatment option for patients,” said Alvaro Torres, CEO of Khiron Life Sciences. “It is also a significant opportunity to position Khiron as a leading brand in the minds of doctors and to drive patient adoption rates in Colombia.”

The agreement with ACMI will lead towards Colombia becoming an important contributor to the body of global research on medical cannabis. Khiron will collaborate with ACMI in developing learning modules to offer health professionals a greater understanding of medical cannabis and the related treatment options for an estimated 5.6 million patients in Colombia.

The endorsement from ACN, which has more than 400 members in Colombia, also opens a gateway for the investigation of alternative courses of treatment with medical cannabis derivatives and will bring academic and scientific support for medical cannabis to member physicians across the country.
