TORONTO, Sept. 1, 2022 /CNW/ - Khiron Life Sciences Corp. ("Khiron" or the "Company") (TSXV: KHRN) (OTCQX: KHRNF) (Frankfurt: A2JMZC), a global leader in medical cannabis throughout Europe and Latin America, announces its new medical product portfolio in Europe.

The THC-dominant full-spectrum extract KHIRIOX 25/1 combines the medicinal properties and areas of application of the established THC isolate formulations (dronabinol) with the specific advantages of a full spectrum extract. This new product is based on Khiron's current top selling and effective extract formulation in Latin America.
Khiron will also introduce non-irradiated flower varieties KHIRON Gelato 19/1 and KHIRON Caramel 5/7. These varieties are very popular in California among consumers and patients and are in very high demand in Europe.

With these new additions to our medical portfolio, Khiron Europe now covers the entire spectrum of chemotypes, therapies and routes of administration in the interest of all our European prescribers and patients. With our new medical products, we offer patients what they want and need. Especially our new flower varieties Gelato and Caramel illustrate that medicine does not have to be bitter."
