They were involved in a number of ventures and building companies including Aurora Cannabis Inc.
Steve and Kimberly were very interested in the health and wellness market. They started looking into utilisation of nature and science for the benefit of health-conscious consumers. With that in mind, they coined the word PreveCeutical™ to which captures the demand for preventive health products and nutraceuticals. They formed PreveCeutical™ Medical Inc. (“PREV”) a company that was incorporated in British Columbia on October 2nd, 2015. They were introduced to a therapy which included a polarized scorpion venom treatment which was developed by Dr. Arthur Mikaelian. PREV entered into an agreement for the exclusive worldwide right to manufacture and distribute the blue scorpion venom product under the trade name CELLB9®, which is being marketed and sold by PREV.
