AusCann Group Holdings Ltd’s (ASX:AC8) Chilean joint venture DayaCann has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Columbian medical cannabis company Khiron Life Sciences Corp (CVE:KHRN). Khiron has its core operations in Colombia and aims to address the unmet medical needs in a market of over 620 million people in Latin America. The MoU contemplates a method of collaboration through which new alternatives of medical cannabis are offered to patients in Chile. To achieve this, the parties will engage in cultivation, manufacturing, pedagogical, scientific and other activities that present cannabinoid medicines as a viable medical option.

A portion of this cannabis is being used by Chilean pharmaceutical manufacturing group, Knop Laboratories, to create medical cannabis products available to Chilean patients via a special access scheme.
