Lustig currently serves as a director at cannabis companies Cresco Labs and Pharmacielo Ltd (CVE:PCLO) (OTCMKTS:PCLOF), he also serves as chairman of both cannabis investment firm Trichome Financial Corp (CNSX:TFC) (OTCMKTS:TRICF) and medical cannabis group IMC Cannabis.

“Aequus is pleased to welcome Marc Lustig who is joining the team as a director. I have worked with Marc on a number of successful projects over the years and we are delighted to add such an experienced and talented director,” Aequus chairman and chief executive Doug Janzen said in a statement.

“Marc has extensive North American capital markets experience and is a respected entrepreneur, who founded and built Origin House before it was acquired by Cresco Labs. Marc’s expertise is expected to be a significant benefit to Aequus as we launch the Evolve and Revive Eye Care products and finalize the submission for Health Canada regarding Zymed -PF, a preservative free prescription drug for the treatment of glaucoma,” he added.
