There's no romantic origin story of how Alvaro Torres, CEO and Co-founder of Khiron Life Sciences, a Colombian medical cannabis company, got into the sector.
And for this reason, it would be tempting to assume the company was started to make the most of the worldwide cannabis green rush with little concern for patients.
It would seem though that at Khiron, Torres and his team strive towards making patients the centre of the business model, whether it's their established clinics in Colombia or their more recent concerns in the UK and Germany.
This is a great interview for cannabis industry professionals and patients alike, as it shows how humanity does not have to be lost when creating a successful medical cannabis company. In fact, it might just work in its favour.
