SASKATOON, Saskatchewan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ZYUS Life Sciences Inc. (“ZYUS”), a company focused on the global development and commercialization of innovative cannabinoid-based formulations, announced that it has received both its Analytical Testing Licence and Research Licence from Health Canada in accordance with Canada’s Cannabis Act and Cannabis Regulations. The grant of these additional licenses follows the recent grant by Health Canada of ZYUS’ Standard Processing Licence for its Saskatoon-based GMP designed processing facility.
The timely award of these two important additional licenses are significant steps forward for ZYUS as the Company prepares for the near-term launch of production, clinical studies and sales of medical cannabinoid-based formulations which will enable it to leverage the power of cannabinoids to manage disease and improve patient quality of life.
With multiple licenses granted by Health Canada over the past two months, ZYUS is now authorized to perform in-house analytical testing activities on cannabis and derivative products, which will enable ZYUS to implement pharmaceutical testing standards and ensure the manufacture of its cannabis formulations are GMP compliant.
The Research Licence enables ZYUS to perform regulated plant breeding research to develop designer cannabis plants containing unique cannabinoid profiles. The research and development will further advance the science of well-being by assisting with the development of cannabinoid-based formulations, for a transformational impact on patients’ lives.
“ZYUS is dedicated to unlocking the full potential of phyto-therapeutics to manage disease, advance medicine and improve patient quality of life,” said Brent Zettl, ZYUS CEO. “These incremental licenses will provide our team of scientists, extraction experts, healthcare practitioners and quality control experts with tools to leverage their collective experience and initiate important planned research, trials and analytical testing initiatives, reduce product testing cycle times and implement pharmaceutical testing standards for ZYUS products.”
