TAMPA, Fla. and WILMINGTON, Del., March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Teewinot Life Sciences (Teewinot), the market leader in biocatalytic technologies for the production of pharmaceutical-grade cannabinoids, and Noramco, a global leading producer of controlled-substance active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), today signed a letter of intent to enter the commercial cannabinoids market using proprietary CannSynthesis technology. The agreement provides Noramco access to Teewinot's patent protected processes for producing pure cannabinoids by means of biocatalysis. The letter also stipulates that Teewinot will provide the expertise Noramco requires to implement the technology rapidly.

"There are few sources for large quantities of cannabinoid-based reference materials, other than plant e­xtraction," said Jeffrey M. Korentur, President and CEO of Teewinot Life Sciences. In partnering with Noramco, a company with an exemplary record of producing high-purity controlled substances on a commercial scale, the pharmaceutical industry is afforded a robust supply chain for reference standards."

Noramco will create 10 to 15 cannabinoid reference standards with CannSynthesis biocatalytic technology and simultaneously evaluate it for the production of dronabinol on a commercial scale. Dronabinol is known for its effectiveness in pain management, as an antiemetic, in the control of vomiting, as an appetite stimulant in the treatment of AIDS and for reducing the side effects of chemotherapy.

"Combining Teewinot's CannSynthesis technology with Noramco's controlled substance manufacture and distribution expertise allows us to serve a fast emerging market space," said James Mish, President and CEO of Noramco. "The letter of intent acknowledges the strengths each company brings to the market and serves as the first step toward a partnership in cannabinoids."
