Javier Hasse

FSD Pharma Inc (OTC: FSDDF) announced this week it closed a deal to acquire Prismic Pharmaceuticals, a U.S.-based specialty pharmaceutical company dedicated to addressing the opioid crisis.

Through the utilization of its micro-PEA platform, the company seeks to develop novel, non-addictive prescription drugs. Such formulations impact the endocannabinoid system. This means that lower doses of drugs can be used to achieve the desired therapeutic effect.

FSD is focused on the research and development of synthetic cannabinoid treatments for CNS disorders.
