Canntab is well positioned in the emerging medical cannabis market with 13 patents pending in the United States and Canada covering a range of proprietary processes and formulations. In addition, the company is currently scaling up manufacturing at their Cobourg facility while moving through the regulatory processes with the intention of bringing a full suite of products to market in Canada and the United States, pending Health Canada approval.
