MediPharm Labs Receives Export Authorization to Ship Medical Cannabis to Brazil

Medical marijuana is not legal in the Brazilian state of Goias. But that is about to change. MediPharm Labs has been authorized to ship cannabis to the state.

MediPharm Labs Inc., a cannabis-focused biotech and medical research company based in British Columbia, has received export authorization from Health Canada to ship medical cannabis to Brazil. The company’s Brazilian subsidiary, Brasil Pharma, is now authorized to engage in all activities required to import, market, sell, and distribute medical cannabis to Brazilian patients. MediPharm is the first publicly traded company in Canada licensed to export medical cannabis for therapeutic use.



MediPharm Labs Corp. (TSX: LABS) (OTCQX: MEDIF) (FSE: MLZ) (“MediPharm Labs” or the “Business”), a cannabis-focused pharmaceutical company, is delighted to announce that it has been granted permission to export medical cannabis oil to Brazil. This approval from both ANVISA and Health Canada enables the Company’s partner XLR8 to begin shipping to patients. The shipment marks a significant step forward for the Company in its use of its pharmaceutical GMP platform for worldwide production and distribution.

In September 2020, the Company and XLR8, a value-added distributor headquartered in Curitiba that serves Brazil, signed a deal. The two-year deal will begin when ANVISA’s Sanitary Product Authorization is granted, which is anticipated later this year. A variety of medicinal oil SKUs, such as balanced and high CBD formulations, will be available for registration. This first authorized delivery goes straight to patients as part of the compassionate care program, enabling XLR8 to begin medicinal cannabis research. This initial shipment clears the door for future approved product distribution possibilities. Brazil is one of the most promising medicinal cannabis markets in Latin America.

“MediPharm Labs is committed to providing pharmaceutical-grade medicinal cannabis products to patients all around the globe. We can only accomplish this objective with excellent partners like XLR8, who have local country expertise,” stated Keith Strachan, President and Interim CEO of MediPharm Labs.

”Clinical research development is a strategic route to offer significant clinical data to assist doctors in making proper patient care choices, and cannabis is a genuine alternative, according to our business pillars. XLR8 BRAZIL CEO and Founder Thiago Callado said, “Our clinical research adheres to all national and international ethical norms, showing our commitment to offer all required resources to our patients.”

In the next months, the Company expects to announce further completed deliveries to Brazil.
