Incannex now officially owns the world’s largest portfolio of patented medicinal cannabinoid drug formulations and psychedelic treatment protocols following the completion of the deal.

“We’re delighted to have been able to work with Incannex on this transformative deal that has allowed Incannex to grow its patent portfolio, expand its addressable markets globally, and further enhance its technical and drug development capabilities,” Schiavello said.
