Brains Bioceutical Corp (“BRAINS” or the “Company”) (Vancouver, Canada), a global leader in pharmaceutical, wellness and veterinary cannabidiol (CBD) based Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) production, is proud to announce its landmark accomplishment to bring Brazil’s first registered medical cannabis product under the new regulations that ANVISA put in place in December of 2019, Brains EU-GMP CBD API to the Brazilian market.
“Our partners in Brazil are a global leader in pharmaceutical production and clinical trials. I’m very proud of this historic moment, wherein we have combined our strengths to create the first registered product under the new regime. The standard we have set for the purity of our CBD is second to none. The team of world-renowned scientists and executives at Brains, continue to achieve landmark milestones with a relentless pursuit of historic firsts in the CBD industry. We look forward to monetizing and capitalizing on the resulting market opportunities that this launch will propel us towards. We now have registered CBD product in the epicenter of the European continent within the UK, and supply the CBD material to our South American partner for achieving the first registered cannabis product under the new ANVIA regulations in Brazil,” said Rick Brar, Chairman and CEO of Brains Bioceutical Corp.
Brains South American partner is a leader in the global pharmaceutical industry. Producing approximately 11.5 billion therapeutic doses per year, and has more than 4,200 employees. The company has one of the largest portfolios of generic drugs in Brazil, and supplies both South American and global markets. Since the recent announcement in December 2019, this is the first registered cannabis product under the special category created by ANVISA. We will be able to export Brains EU-GMP CBD API from the UK for our partner in Brazil to formulate their products to be sold in pharmacies and distributors in Brazil and potentially expand that to the rest of South America as the marketplace expands. All of our partners formulations adhere to the highest quality for manufacturing and testing with a view to making it the safest product available in the region. Under the terms of the agreement, Brains will provide its EU-GMP, CBD API to be used in the registered cannabis products.
“Now more than ever, it is important that patients have access to products that do not compromise on safety and quality. We believe that these products are bringing forward the highest quality product into South America. The Brains industry leading regulatory team was able to introduce the first cannabinoid based specials products in the UK and the first to supply our EU-GMP API ingredient to our partner in Brazil. Brains CBD is one of the few natural, plant-based API ingredients available anywhere on the planet. This team will successfully lead Brains to another first later this year, when we spearhead the reshaping of the CBD industry in the UK by taking the same approach for our Novel Foods application,” added Gurdeep Bains, President of Brains.
