CSE’s Barrington Miller was recently joined in the studio by Dr. Raza Bokhari, CEO of FSD Pharma (CSE:HUGE), whose company recently celebrated their market open at the Canadian Securities Exchange.
In this discussion Dr. Bokhari shares what it’s like to be the first company to be dual-listed on the CSE and NASDAQ (1:35), the importance for companies in the capital markets to be in “the big ocean” (5:25), the groundbreaking clinical trials FSD Pharma is conducting with a synthetic compound that acts like CBD (6:30), and the “HUGE” importance of their ticker symbol (11:00).
Listen until the end to hear Dr. Bokhari’s personal path towards becoming a serial, “eccentric”, entrepreneur (12:30).
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.
