- In the second half of 2021, the company opened its first Zerenia clinic in Lima, in partnership with Clínica Montesur. Since opening the clinic, over 80% of the consults resulted in cannabis prescriptions
- In August 2021, Khiron obtained registration of its first two medical cannabis products in Peru, available for sale nationwide in late Q4 2021
The Partnership With CDL
As a specialized pain clinic, CDL already has pain management specialists and a patient base exclusively related to chronic and acute pain. Starting February 2022, Khiron will be leveraging the CDL’s existing infrastructure and reputation to provide access to cannabinoid-based treatments to a growing group of patients in Lima and surrounding areas.
Alvaro Torres, Khiron CEO and director, commented, “In 2021, Peru represented around 5% of our total volume sales in Latin America, and now with our new partnership with CDL we believe we can increase our sales cost-effectively by expanding Zerenia in Peru. In our first clinic in Peru, over 80% of total consultations resulted in medical cannabis prescriptions, further validating our unique, evidence and service-driven strategy. By establishing a new pain-focused partnership with CDL in Lima, we plan to grow beyond our current capacity and offer different treatment alternatives to more than 10,000 patients annually.”
