Surterra Wellness, an Atlanta-based cannabis company with operations in Florida and Texas, announced it will partner with Hungary’s Intrexon Corp. in a $100 million licensing deal aimed at biosynthetic cannabinoid production.
Surterra would use Intrexon’s proprietary yeast fermentation platform to boost its cannabinoid production.
Surterra is a privately held company; Intrexon trades on the Nasdaq under the ticker symbol XON.
This is the second deal between the two companies this year: They earlier announced a collaboration on cannabis plant propagation.
