Highlights in the discussion include significant milestones achieved by the Company:

The Announcement that The Journal of Neuroscience has published the findings of Western University’s research leading to the discovery of Mentabinol®, a patented THC based formulation & L-theanine - a safer alternative, for people who are taking THC for mental ailments, long-term pain, chemotherapy side-effects or reducing anxiety or depression.

Mentabinol® could also be a viable treatment to help address and alleviate the opioid crisis.

Second Master Formulation
Mentanine®, Omega-3 + CBD, non-psychotic - crosses the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB), CBD by itself, is not effective for mental health - does not cross the Blood Brain Barrier.

Mentanine® has ~10x the efficacy of a CBD-based FDA-approved product by GW Pharma ($4B market cap)

  • Looking to start clinical trials of Mentanine® as a treatment of epilepsy
  • FDA-approval process expected to take 18 to 24 months
  • Key difference vs other CBD products in the market - scientific formula supported by preclinical trials
  • Company is looking to list on the CSE and up list in the US after a capital raise (currently on OTC Markets)
  • Strong possibility for near term revenue, in advanced discussions with Licensed Processors and Distributors
