Harnessing the Power of CannabinoidsTM

Led by a world class team, BayMedica is developing an efficient and scalable biosynthetic platform to deliver a portfolio of natural cannabinoids including CBC, CBD and CBG as well as novel cannabinoid analogs for life science, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, cosmetic and animal health applications.

The BayMedica Platform

We are developing the BayMedica platform and process to bring the benefits of cannabinoids to consumers and animals without the drawbacks of traditional methods that involve extracting these therapeutic compounds from cannabis.

 Instead of the time consuming process of growing hemp or marijuana which uses valuable arable land and water resources, we use the same yeast that is used to brew beer to bio-prepare cannabinoids. We do this through a patent-pending process by engineering these yeast to make cannabinoids that are identical to the natural compounds found in plants.
