Khiron Life Sciences (TSXV: KHRN) (OTCQB: KHRNF) (Frankfurt: A2JMZC) is preparing to launch the Aceso Hemp brand in the Latin America market. Aceso will be the first brand to enter the Latin America market under the company’s joint venture with Dixie Brands Inc. (CSE: Dixi.U).
The company has received approval to sell Aceso Hemp in Colombia, with initial sales beginning in the fourth quarter of 2019.
Aceso Hemp, which is part of Dixie Brands, is the next generation in hemp, pairing plant science with food science. It offers a growing line of indication-specific, hemp-derived supplements for promoting optimal health. Aceso Hemp produces a line of balms for the growing hemp-based consumer wellness market and is widely established in the U.S. market.
Khiron will initially prioritize two Aceso products to offer in the Colombian market. The products, Aceso Alfa Balm and Aceso Sigma Balm, blend essential oils and ingredients to soothe aching muscles and revitalize skin and enhance their impact with hemp. Each product contains 56 mg of naturally occurring cannabinoids.
Khiron is growing its presence in the Latin American market. The company is focused on CBD-based cosmeceutical and wellness products for the Latin American market. Last year, the company launched Kuida skincare products in Colombia.
