Developing insights through genetic testing and data are a key part of that mission.”

The amalgamated company will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Entheon Biomedical under the name Lobo Genetics Inc. and carry on Lobo’s current business.

Entheon will issue 5 million common shares to Lobo’s shareholders.

Entheon is a biotechnology research and development company committed to developing and commercializing safe and effective DMT-based psychedelic therapeutic products for treating addiction and substance use disorders.
