VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Brains Bioceutical Corp (“Brains Bio” or the “Company”), the largest natural cannabinoid active pharmaceutical ingredient (“API”) manufacturer in the world, has signed a landmark supply agreement with Prati-Donaduzzi, one of the largest drug manufacturers in South America, to supply natural EU-GMP CBD API (“CBD API”) for their ongoing clinical trials and cannabinoid products approved by Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária (ANVISA), Brazil’s Health Regulatory Agency.

“We have built a very strong foundation via our renowned science team and commercial production capability to produce the world’s purest natural sourced cannabinoid API molecules. Accordingly, we are thrilled that this has allowed us to expand our long-standing relationship with an industry leader, Prati-Donaduzzi. We will continue to supply our high-quality natural CBD API for Prati-Donaduzzi’s clinical trials and cannabinoid products, which we expect will ultimately culminate in market-authorized prescription (Rx) medicines. This supply agreement is a landmark moment in the history of the pharmaceutical cannabinoids industry. This outcome is the culmination of respective efforts as leading innovators in the space. This makes Brains Bio an important partner for Prati-Donaduzzi as they continue to lead and pave the way in cannabinoid medicines and cannabinoid science,” said Ricky Brar CEO and Chairperson of Brains Bioceutical.

This landmark deal for both companies represents a significant step forward in developing natural cannabinoid-based medicines in the global pharmaceutical industry.
