The ZYUS Vision: To forge a new industry of phytotherapeutics and elevate its solutions as a standard of care for treating disease and managing the experience of it. ZYUS is upgrading a global-scale ethanol extraction facility that will source dry herbal feedstock cannabis material from multiple Canadian licensed cannabis producers (LPs), thereby taking advantage of a dry herbal capacity overbuild widely anticipated to emerge within the next one to two years. ZYUS is solely focused on the development of pharmaceutical-grade medicinal oil products and dedicated to improving patient well-being, which is highly unique and well placed relative to the overall direction of the domestic and global industry. The timing for ZYUS’s business plan is particularly attractive due to a number of industry trends and indicators. Cannabis oil and oil derivative products are poised to become the majority of the domestic and global cannabis markets. These markets are anticipated to grow rapidly over the next ten years. These value-added oil products require a high level of expertise to successfully establish commercial extraction facilities and produce pharmaceutical-grade cannabinoid formulations on the scale.
