22nd Century Group Introduces Scientific Collaboration with University of Virginia

22nd Century Group reported that the company has entered into a sponsored research agreement with the University of Virginia and an exclusive license with the University of Virginia Patent Foundation d/b/a University of Virginia Licensing & Ventures Group. According to a release, over the next three years, the company will invest approximately $1,100,000 in this scientific collaboration with UVA. The goals of the research agreement include: (i) creating industrial hemp plants with guaranteed levels of THC below the legal limits (thus eliminating the risk to growers of having to destroy non-conforming hemp crops) and (ii) optimizing other desirable hemp plant characteristics to improve the plant's suitability for growing in Virginia and in similar legacy tobacco regions. This alliance will also involve the development and study of medically important cannabinoids to be extracted from the Company's hemp plants. UVA and 22nd Century will conduct all activities in this scientific collaboration within the parameters of state and federal licenses and permits held by UVA for such work. These landmark agreements grant 22nd Century exclusive rights to commercialize all results of the collaboration in consideration of royalty payments by the Company to UVA LVG.
