FSD Pharma Inc. Opens the Market at the CSE Media Centre

The CSE welcomed FSD Pharma Inc. (CSE:HUGE) to a Market Open at the CSE Media Centre on March 6th, 2020.

FSD Pharma Inc. is a specialty biotech pharmaceutical company that is targeting all legal aspects of the cannabis industry, including cultivation, processing, and manufacturing. As a science-driven company, FSD Pharma’s mission is to leverage their world-leading hydroponic indoor cannabis facility to develop life-saving medicines based on cannabinoid science. It is currently focusing its research and development efforts on novel cannabinoid-based treatments for various ailments, including certain central nervous system disorders, autoimmune skin diseases, and chronic pain. The company is also a licensed producer of medicinal grade cannabis under Canada’s Cannabis Act and Regulation.

“It was indeed a great milestone for FSD Pharma to come back and ring the bell at the CSE,” said CEO Dr. Raza Bokhair, MD. “We have, from what I understand, become your first company that is dual-listed.”

He added, “We have now become one of twelve Canadian domicile companies that are dual-listed in the United States – [the] first CSE company that is dual listed in the United States. And I hope that we will soon be recognized in a league of our own, as the thrust of our business is advancing clinical trials through FDA approved processes.”

Other key executive members of the FSD Pharma team were also in attendance at the Market Open, including Executive Co-Chairman and Founder Anthony Durkacz, and President and Founder Zeeshan Saeed.

The CSE is pleased to announce that World Class Extractions (CSE:PUMP) opened the market at the CSE Media Centre on September 17th, 2019. World Class Extractions is a Canadian publicly traded company which operates through two vertically integrated subsidiaries, Soma Labs Scientific and Greenmantle Products.

“It’s really exciting for us to be here at the Media Centre, ringing the bell for the CSE,” said CEO Rosy Mondin. “We’ve been listed since 2017 through Quadron Cannatech, so for us to ring today, it’s fantastic, as it follows our merger with World Class Extractions.”

“It was a merger of strengths,” added Chairman Anthony Durkacz. “At the end of the day they had a great operational team and great technology. We had great technology and great capital markets access.”
