About DanCann, the upcoming issue of units and listing at Spotlight Stock Market
DanCann Pharma is a pharmaceutical biotechnology company that was established in March 2018 due to the poor access for cannabinoid-based drugs and pharmaceuticals shortly after the establishment of the new Pilot Programme with medical cannabis in Denmark. For that reason, DanCann Pharma today works with the mission of securing access to treatments with quality assured cannabinoid substances. DanCann Pharma makes and handles prescription (Rx-pharmaceuticals) and over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceuticals mainly focused, at the moment, on pain patients with alternative needs and management to handle their illness.
DanCann Pharma is licensed for handling of euphoriant substances, and during the summer 2018, the Company was licensed as one of the first companies in Denmark to handle and cultivate cannabis for medical use. DanCann Pharma is a vertically integrated company with upcoming activities from cultivation to refining of cannabis- and cannabinoids. DanCann Pharma’s business plan has several tracks, including, but not limited to: imports, R&D, and own in-house production (cultivation, refining and formulation).
DanCann Pharma’s first production site, BIOTECH PHARM1, where the cannabis bulk is to be produced, is under establishment, and is expected to be operational in start 2021. The Company has with the existing equity secured the construction and launch of BIOTECH PHARM1.
During 2018, 2019 and 2020, DanCann Pharma has worked extensively on developing a comprehensive Quality Management System (QMS) to ensure that all regulations, approvals and quality requirements are in order prior to the construction of BIOTECH PHARM1. When operational, the production facility will be among the most advanced and efficient in the world of pharmaceutical cannabis cultivation.
DanCann Pharma’s second production site, BIOTECH PHARM2, where the cannabis bulk is to be transformed into various patient-friendly products, is expected to be operational before the end of 2021. In connection with BIOTECH PHARM2 the company will also develop a Research and Development department that will build the foundation for future research into new cannabinoids as well as new ways to administer the cannabinoids. DanCann Pharma mainly focuses on solutions and developments around capsule and tablet-based pharmaceuticals - and the associated fast (instant) or slow dissolving.
As of today, over +100 distinct cannabinoids (potential APIs) has been identified in the cannabis plant. While the main focus has been on the two major compounds, THC and CBD, DanCann Pharma unlock the true potential of cannabis by providing patients with an exclusive product portfolio, including rare and novel cannabinoids. Novel cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals can unlock new treatment options and relief for a future wide range of diseases and conditions. By this the Company has a differentiated approach to the industry, by targeting supply and research of rare cannabinoids (APIs) for new, unexplored treatment options. DanCann Pharma aims to release the true potential of medical cannabis.
Beside their own production DanCann Pharma will import cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals from third-party partnerships. The company signed a strategic supply agreement with MediPharm Labs for import of several new products that is expected to be available on the Danish market during Q1 2021. DanCann Pharma estimates sales and first turn-over of imported cannabis- and cannabinoid-based pharmaceuticals from third-party partnerships in Q1-Q2 2021.
DanCann Pharma’s next step is in-house production lines where the active ingredients (APIs) will be formulated for pharmaceuticals in several different dosing technologies (both new and existing) with the result of various, patient-friendly products.
