API Labs Inc.
API has the only licence to grow poppies in NA. International treaty gives API priority to supply Canada's $600 million market.
API LABS has the vision to create a new industry in Canada that will provide the ingredients derived from poppies used to make key medications that are currently imported from France, Australia and the U.K. Poppies express alkaloids that are used to make medications and the poppies API uses express the alkaloid thebaine. Though thebaine is a controlled substance it does not have narcotic properties and cannot be illicitly diverted in the field.
