The AgroTek Health subsidiary of Tetra will work with Constance Therapeutics to bring these products to the Canadian medical marijuana market under a commercial license agreement. “Over the coming months, the corporation will be focusing its energy on generating revenues while becoming an important player in the medical marijuana market,” commented Mr. Andre Rancourt, CEO of Tetra. “The products developed by Constance Therapeutics are exactly what the corporation is looking for in terms of novel cannabis products developed for patients. The approach used by Constance Therapeutics is exactly the type of business model that Tetra is implementing to bring medical marijuana products to patients.”
“Constance Therapeutics works in conjunction with physicians and medical professionals to provide integrative medicinal options to those suffering from serious conditions, such as cancer, lyme, auto-immune, chronic pain, neurodegenerative diseases, and other out-of-option patients,” commented Constance Finley, Founder and CEO of Constance Therapeutics, Inc. She added, “over the years, research demonstrates that cannabinoids including specific terpenes, reduce and inhibit tumor growth in various animal models. Early clinical studies suggest cannabinoids enhance the effects of traditional cancer treatments with radiation therapy and help reduce the size of brain cancers, such as Glioma, compared to controls.”
Tetra will enter into a licensing agreement with Constance Therapeutics to perform clinical research on the novel cannabis extract products initially focusing on their use in treating patients with brain cancer. Tetra will work closely with oncologists to evaluate the therapeutic benefit of these products according to pharmaceutical standards.
These products are currently available to patients living in California, USA and are consumed sublingually and through vaporization. As part of its mission to bring effective cannabinoid-based products to cancer patients, Tetra will be working in partnership with Constance Therapeutics to investigate the potential efficacy in a clinical trial.
