ANC Inc, Alberta’s first licensed micro cultivator, continues their national expansion with approval to supply seeds for the commercial and home grower in British ColumbiaAlbertaSaskatchewanOntario and most recently, New Brunswick.

“Since 2017, ANC Cannabis has been forming a company built around the belief that we can create quality product that is accessible to everyone while also providing educational support and services to our consumers,” said Tairance Rutter, ANC Inc.’s VP Business Development and Marketing. Adding, “At ANC we are motivated by a passion for quality product and support for the entire growing and cultivation community. We believe that everyone, no matter their background or experience, should be able to grow their own quality cannabis plants.”

ANC is first and foremost a genetics company committed to developing the highest quality products possible. ANC is currently focused on seeds for the consumer and commercial market, with plans to release flower for retail sale in the late fall of 2020. The company has been approved for a processing licence so they can process their own product. The company has additional long-term plans to sell flower, likely in the form of pre-rolls sourced from the genetics they will be offering consumers as seed stock. This approach will allow consumers to experience the product before deciding on a cultivar. This will be part of a larger program the company calls the “Know Before You Grow” service, which will also include access to an online platform offering genetics-specific tips for home growers.  ANC Inc’s VP of Research and Quality Control, Thomas Facciolo, is excited to provide answers for all our home growers’ questions.

“ANC continues to expand at a rapid pace, and we are elated to have reached the milestone of national distribution, spanning across Canada, from the West Coast in British Columbia to the East Coast in New Brunswick,” said ANC Inc President, Clayton Bordeniuk. Adding, “this is just the beginning for ANC.”

ANC has developed hundreds of different genetics that are ready for the recreational market including Fruity Hoops, Pink Lemonade, Pineapple Express, Power Kush, Triple Scoop, Bubba Kush 2.5, Chocolate Cake, Double Chocolate, 34 ST Cookies, Bubba Cheese and Sorbet 33.

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 29, 2020) –  Better Plant Sciences Inc. (CSE: PLNT) (OTCQB: VEGGF) (FSE: YG3) (“Better Plant“) or (the “Company“) is pleased to announce that its majority owned subsidiary NeonMind Biosciences (“NeonMind“) has entered into a definitive agreement with Psygen Labs Inc. (“Psygen“) for the supply of psilocybin for NeonMind’s planned preclinical, and clinical trials to study the use of a drug product including Psilocybin for the treatment of food cravings and anxiety. The agreement was signed on September 28th, 2020.

Psygen is currently acting as broker between NeonMind and a licensed dealer of restricted drugs (the “Licensed Dealer“). The Licensed Dealer holds a dealer’s licence issued under Part J of the Food and Drug Regulations (a “Dealer’s Licence“). The Supply Agreement provides that Psygen will supply the psilocybin directly once Psygen holds a Dealer’s Licence. Psygen currently has a pending application for a Dealer’s Licence.

“Psilocybin is known to activate serotonin receptors,” says Dr. William Panenka, lead scientific advisor to NeonMind. “As a neurotransmitter, serotonin helps to relay messages from one area of the brain to another. Serotonin is responsible for some of the drivers which govern eating. We are very interested in furthering studies to test various dosing regimens for NeonMind to see the effects that psilocybin may have on the serotonin receptors that regulate food cravings.”

“Psygen’s mission is to fill a supply gap for restricted drug substances and restricted drug products for use in clinical trials and in pre-clinical research,” says Danny Motyka, CEO of Psygen Labs Inc. “We have brokered supply of various restricted drugs for pre-clinical studies and clinical trials through our relationship with a Licensed Dealer. Psygen is currently building out a commercial manufacturing facility designed for high-volume output of psychedelic drug substances and drug products, filling a niche in the evolving psychedelic medicine ecosystem. Today these psychedelic drug substances are classified as restricted drugs, meaning no recognized medical use in Canada, and we are playing our part in moving those substances to the controlled drugs schedule of the Food and Drug Regulations or otherwise providing compliant access to psilocybin and other psychedelics.”

In December 2019, NeonMind filed a U.S. provisional patent application in the United States for the invention relating to therapeutic administration of psilocybin to provide weight loss benefits and potential treatment or regulation of diabetes, and regulation of blood glucose, and to reduce susceptibility to cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, erectile dysfunction, urinary incontinence, chronic renal failure, sleep apnea, asthma, and certain forms of cancer.

In May 2020, NeonMind completed the design of a preclinical trial to confirm that psilocybin is an effective treatment for weight loss and food cravings (the “Trial“). In July 2020, the scientific investigator chosen to lead NeonMind’s preclinical trial submitted a Section 56 Exemption application to Health Canada for the use of psilocybin in the Trial. An exemption must be granted and a final agreement entered into with the laboratory before the Trial can begin.

According to the World Health Organization, in 2016, more than 1.9 billion adults or 39% of adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Grandview Research projects that the global weight management market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 8.3% from 2019 to 2025 to reach USD $442.3 billion by 2025.
