Today we are a recognized cannabis leader in Latin America, generating revenue and market share as the first and only company authorized for low- and high-THC sales in Colombia, and with expanded sales activity in Latin AmericaEurope and beyond.

Since then, the Company has achieved many consequential milestones regarding its international growth and has established itself as a leader in the medical cannabis industry within Latin America. On a personal note, I am very grateful to Mike for his support and care of the health and safety of our employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. We wish him the best in his future endeavors,” continued Alvaro Torres.

“When I first arrived at Khiron I was inspired by the vision of Alvaro and the team, and the opportunity ahead. To now see our first patients being helped by the medical cannabis products that Khiron produces is humbling, and I look forward to seeing many more in the coming years. In the last two years we have completed two acquisitions and four financings and are one of the few cannabis companies with a solid capital structure, as Khiron commercializes product lines in several different markets. It has been a great privilege to serve as President of this company, and work with this incredible team of professionals, and I am excited to continue this work in the new role,” comments Chris Naprawa, Khiron Board Chair.
