Since the legalization of medical and recreational marijuana in North America, the medical community interest in the cannabis space has grown immensely, resulting in a growing demand for R&D in the cannabis industry. Now that the regulatory barriers have been removed, Canada’s medical cannabis market is estimated to reach $3 Billion by 2024. According to data released by GrandView Research, the global medical cannabis market is projected to reach $146.4 Billion USD by 2025. With the growing acceptance and focus by the Canadian medical community, it is estimated that Canada is well positioned to be a world leader in advancing research & clinical trials in the global cannabis sector. Recognizing this opportunity, Innovate Phytotechnologies Inc., through its wholly-owned subsidiaries, offers seed-to-sale solutions and services including compliance and third-party testing, clinical trials, micropropagation, product development, and IP development and protection, for our target licensed cannabis producers, and medical professionals and associations.

Rob Emlyn, CEO stated; “Our new clinic, together with our integrated services, provides our clients with a complete set of services, from testing, R&D, IP development to clinical trials. Innovate Clinical Centres provide the infrastructure to serve the rapidly growing demand for Canadian cannabis clinical trials and broadens our reach to the global cannabis industry.”


In addition to Innovate Clinical Centres, Innovate Phytotechnologies has two wholly-owned subsidiaries: Phytomatrix Natural Technologies Inc., a developer and manufacturer of hemp-based natural products, and Innovate Phytoceuticals Inc., a regulatory compliance, R&D, full spectrum testing and analytical service provider. The relationship of these subsidiaries provides a unique integration opportunity that streamlines product development, allowing for a smooth transition from product formulation to clinical trials to production and retail.
