June 17, 2020 10:35:36

Willow Biosciences (TSX: WLLW) (OTCQB: CANSF), a Canadian biotechnology company creating high purity, plant-derived compounds for the global pharmaceutical, health and wellness and consumer packaged goods industries, today announced further acceleration of its path to commercialization following continued scale-up development success and the addition of multiple new cannabinoids for production. “Willow’s scientific and operational success to date has solidified the use of yeast fermentation as a production platform,” Willow’s CEO Trevor Peters stated in the news release. “Our scientific discoveries over the past 14 months have contributed to the development of not one, but five different cannabinoids and our pilot project production samples expected to be available in Q3 of 2020 will make Willow the first to biosynthetically produce material amounts of cannabinoids. We expect to offer a portfolio of ultra-pure, pharmaceutical grade quality cannabinoids by the end of 2021. As we transition from a research-focused company to a production company, we are investigating a variety of end markets, including pharmaceutical and consumer products. We see significant potential in consumer packaged goods for the North American recreation market, where interest for high quality ingredients such as ours is strong.”
