Burcon intends to conduct research to develop extraction and purification technologies for the production of highly-purified cannabis-derived products.
The move into the nascent purified cannabinoids market is a strategic fit for Burcon. We are a Canadian pioneer in the development of novel plant-sourced ingredients, with over eighteen years of expertise in nutritive and phytochemical extraction technologies, developing processes and products for use in global food, nutrition, wellness and supplement products.
Burcon has applied for accreditation from Health Canada’s Office of Controlled Substances to conduct research and for the future commercial production of purified cannabinoid extracts. Burcon has submitted an application for a Controlled Drugs and Substances Dealers License to Health Canada and intends to also pursue partnering opportunities with growers and suppliers of hemp and cannabis input materials.
