Organigram is Atlantic Canada’s original Licensed Producer of medical cannabis for the region. The brand has been serving patients since 2014 with medical cannabis and cannabis oils produced in indoor environments with maximum control over production and product quality. Organigram has amassed many years of experience with both cannabis plants and patients alike achieving a reputation for exceptional service and a lineup of award-winning products.
Last year in June 2020, Organigram entered into a multi-year agreement agreeing to supply dried cannabis flower to one of the largest and most established medical cannabis producers in Israel, Canndoc Ltd. (“Canndoc”). Canndoc is a subsidiary of InterCure Ltd. (TASE Reference ID: INCR/INCR.TA).
For over a decade Canndoc has been pioneering pharmaceutical-grade cannabis in Israel. The GMP-approved medical cannabis products are sold in pharmacies throughout Israel while the company also holds international cultivation and distribution agreements in the European Union and Canada.
The Organigram / Canndoc supply agreement terms include Organigram providing 3,000 kilograms of premium, high quality dried flower grown indoors to Canndoc by December 31, 2021 for processing and distribution throughout the Israeli medical cannabis market. Under the terms Organigram may provide an additional 3,000 kilograms of dried flower during the same time period at Canndoc’s option which is subject to conditions.
Organigram’s agreement with Canndoc provides a tiered pricing scheme with the exact value dependent on overall product mix and product potency. There is also potential opportunity for Organigram to launch their own branded medical products with Canndoc in both the Israeli and European markets along with granting Canndoc exclusivity and related rights within the Israel market for a period of approximately 7.5 years.
Organigram is one of only two current Canadian Licensed Producers that have made a strategic investment in the distributive technology of biosynthesis.
Biosynthesis is a production of molecules using living cells. When instructions are incorporated for producing a specific molecule into the genetic code of a simple host organism, for example bacteria, yeast or algae, these organics can then produce nearly any molecule as instructed. The host cells become production factories for the desired molecules.
THC and CBD, while being two of the major cannabinoids found in cannabis, make up less than 5% of the cannabis plant compounds as a whole. Minor cannabinoids and terpenes, despite being over 100 in nature, make up less than 0.1%. This leaves 95% of the cannabis plant as waste after throughput from manufacturing methods whether those are planting, growing, harvesting, trimming or curing large quantities of cannabis plants and extracting their active compounds for cannabis extracts.
Biosynthesis has the potential to create cannabinoids at a tremendously large scale with a fraction of the cost of traditional cannabis cultivation.
One of Organigram’s strategic investments has been Hyasynth Biologicals Inc., a Montreal-based biotechnology company known as a leader in the field of biosynthesis and cannabinoid science. Hyasynth has develop disruptive technology that utilizes proprietary yeast strains and patent-pending enzymes to naturally produce cannabinoids without growing the cannabis plant.
There are multiple benefits of Biosynthesis vs Traditional Cultivation including:
Organigram does believe that there will always be a sizable market for premium, dried cannabis flower however, through their work with Hyansynth the company believes that assumptions about scale, speed and overall production can be drastically improved. In addition to the investment, Organigram has a right to purchase 25% of the cannabinoid offtake from Hyansynth at a discount from market price.
Through extensive Research & Development, the Organigram R&D team has been able to develop a proprietary nanoemulsion technology capable of generating micro-particles that are small, yet uniform in nature. The reduced particle size allows for improved absorption in the body as opposed to traditional solid edibles, leading to a more reliable and consistent, controlled experience.
Traditional solid cannabis edibles require the body to spend significant time breaking down the fat soluble cannabinoids content before it can be metabolized and absorbed in the body. The lengthy process can lead to users overconsuming cannabis edibles and experiencing undesirable effects.
The Organigram research team of experts has also developed a transformative use of the emulsion system into solid form creating a dissolvable cannabinoid powder. The nanoemulsion technology is anticipated to increase stability and temperature variation, salinity, pH, mechanical disturbance and sweeteners.
The powdered format holds potential to offer consumers a measured dose of cannabinoids that can be added to the desired liquid of their choosing, such as water, tea, juice or other choices. This also allows for easy cannabinoid ingestion and discretion, portability and increased product shelf life. The solid form, shelf-stable powder is water-compatible and unflavored. It is expected to be absorbed by the body within 10-15 minutes after ingestion.
