TORONTO — Avicanna Inc., a biopharmaceutical company focused on the development, manufacturing and commercialization of plant-derived cannabinoid-based products, announces that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Alliancepharma Technologies S.A. for the distribution of Avicanna’s medical and pharmaceutical formulations in Ecuador. Avicanna has also entered into an agreement with Spenta S.A., an Ecuadorian cosmetic distributor, for the distribution of its Pura Earth branded derma-cosmetic product line nationwide. As part of its commercial expansion plans, Avicanna has also completed an export of feminized seeds to Uruguay from its majority-owned cultivation subsidiary, Santa Marta Golden Hemp S.A.S. in Santa Marta, Colombia.

Avicanna’s exclusive agreement with Alliancepharma will take advantage of the upcoming Ecuadorian regulations of cannabis-based products and allow for the registration and commercialization of Avicanna’s advanced cannabinoid-based consumer and pharmaceutical products in the Ecuadorian market.

“We are very excited to enter the Ecuadorian market with the first cannabinoid-based pharmaceutical products with the support of a world class partner such as Avicanna Inc. This partnership strengthens our commitment as pioneers and leaders in the pharmaceutical industry, offering innovative phyto-therapeutic solutions to continue improving the quality of life of our patients.” Stated Diego Vega, International Business Development Director of Alliancepharma.

Avicanna’s Pura Earth branded derma-cosmetic products are expected to enter the Ecuadorian market through Spenta’s distribution nationwide network of pharmacies, beauty retailers and e-commerce platforms. The agreement with Spenta coincides with an initial purchase order of several SKU’s which is expected to be exported from Colombia in Q1-2021. This will become the second South American market after Colombia in which the Pura Earth branded derma-cosmetic products will be available for sale.
