About Us

Chemesis International brings a focus on technology, brands, partnerships and social impact.

Technology

Chemesis invests in technology. This includes working with partners using the latest equipment targeting multiple extraction methodologies to preserve the quality of the phytocannabinoids and terpenes from cannabis. Wherever possible, commercial agreements include the acquisition of intellectual property, emphasizing the commitment Chemesis places on producing grade-A products, and to lead the industry in both  methodology and innovation.

Brands

Chemesis is focused on developing long term partnerships with highly sought-after brands. Chemesis believes partnering with strong brands and distributors is a key to building loyalty that will follow consumers at multiple access points.

Partnerships

Chemesis has developed leading partnerships across the value chain. Through our collaborative approach, we have already seen rapid growth across our vertical markets. We will seek to work through a “boots on the ground” methodology of assisting our local partners to help lead the decision making in each of our unique territories.

Social Impact

We believe brands speak through the social impact they have in the communities they operate within. This approach to brand development aligns Corporate Social Responsibility with brand value creation ensuring we act responsibly and sustainably as we meet our business goals.
