TORONTO, Aug. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ALGAE DYNAMICS CORP (OTC: “ADYNF”) (the “Company”), a company focused on the development of unique health products and nutraceuticals utilizing cannabis and botanical oil extracts, has secured a supply agreement to enable Canadian Licensed Producers and International Licensed Importers access to bulk cannabis deliveries in anticipation of licensing agreements for our proprietary Cannabis formulated products.
Recent Developments in our Collaboration with Western University
The researchers at Western University, the Company’s scientific collaboration team, have developed a very unique formulation involving cannabis and other botanical extracts. Western University’s Dr. Laviolette said, “We are pleased to report significant progress on our ongoing projects with Algae Dynamics. We are continuing to work out the precise molecular mechanisms underlying the therapeutic modes of action for several unique cannabinoid formulations. These research projects are identifying safer and clinically superior cannabinoid formulations aimed at treating the symptoms of various psychiatric disorders, while eliminating the negative side effects associated with traditional marijuana formats.”
The invention will be assigned to Algae Dynamics Corp. free from any royalties and will become 100% owned by the company.
We are in the process of filing a patent application prior to entering into domestic and international distribution agreements with Licensed Producers/Dealers (LPs/LDs) and Pharmaceutical companies.
Our discussions with the perspective LP’s/LD’s have included the production, distribution and related collaborative initiatives involving our specially formulated products.
We have an assignable supply agreement with a large-volume, high-quality cannabis grower to secure a source of cannabis material for our Licensed Partners producing and selling our Medical Cannabis formulations.
We expect to generate revenue in 2018 from our agreements with our Licensed Partners.
Paul Ramsay stated, “We are pleased that we can further support Dr. Steven Laviolette and his team at Western University by securing a high-quality and high-volume supply of Medical Cannabis for formulations applicable to mental health conditions.”
