EMMAC Life Sciences Group and Boiron selected for French Medical Cannabis trial

26 January 2021, London. EMMAC Life Sciences Group (“EMMAC” or the “Group” or the “Company”), Europe’s largest independent cannabis company, is pleased to announce that in partnership with Paris Euronext listed Boiron (BOI.PA), it has been selected by the French Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products (“ANSM”) as one of the suppliers for the forthcoming French Medical Cannabis trial.

The trial, the first of its kind in France, will allow 3,000 patients access to medical cannabis as a treatment option for certain indications; including chronic pain, epilepsy, oncology and spasticity; under tightly controlled conditions.  ANSM has selected 2 oral solutions produced by EMMAC as second-source treatments to be available to patients and healthcare professionals as part of the two year trial.

The partnership combines Boiron’s unparalled expertise in plant-based medicine, with EMMAC’s uniquely controlled European supply chain, from seed to patient, in order to deliver  pharmaceutical-grade cannabis medicines that meet the strict requirements of product quality, safety and traceability.

Valérie Lorentz-Poinsot, Chief Executive Officer of Boiron, said: “Participating in this trial is part of our project to provide patients in therapeutic impasse with effective solutions.  Medical cannabis is an important alternative treatment option for the future, particularly for the management of chronic and complex pain.  We are very pleased to partner with EMMAC Life Sciences Group in this project, and remain at the disposal of the ANSM.”

Antonio Costanzo, Chief Executive Officer of EMMAC, said: “We are proud to have been selected to be part of this important trial.  Alongside Boiron, we are pleased to share our international experience to advance the industry’s understanding of the benefits of medical cannabis.  The selection of our products by ANSM is testament to EMMAC’s scientific knowledge and rigor, as well as our ability to provide products to the highest standards of compliance, safety and quality.”
