Librede is a synthetic biology company that uses biologically-based approaches to produce high value natural products with a focus on cannabinoids. Librede’s patented yeast-based cannabinoid production platform can provide therapeutic cannabinoids to diverse markets in an economically and environmentally sustainable way. Librede offers a low cost, efficient, modular platform for biosynthesis of any natural cannabinoid. Current agricultural based production requires large areas of land, fertilizers, pesticides, and large amounts of water. Librede’s system does not require large areas of land, it recycles the water that is used, uses less energy, and does not use any fertilizers or pesticides. Librede was acquired by Lygos in January of 2020.
