Cannamedical® introduces cannabis strains from the Canadian producer MedReleaf to the European market for the first time
Cologne – Cannamedical® Pharma GmbH has successfully imported the first two batches of homogeneous MedReleaf varieties to Germany. Cannamedical® is now selling one of the high-quality cannabis strains to pharmacies throughout Germany. Six other varieties will become available in the coming weeks.
“With the first successful import from Canada at the beginning of July 2018, Cannamedical® Pharma laid the foundation for a quality-oriented and nationwide supply of European patients,” explains Niklas Kouparanis, Sales Director of the Cologne-based company. “We see a steadily growing demand in our pharmacy network since the introduction of the cannabis law in Germany in March 2017.
The number of cannabis units dispensed by prescription throughout Germany, has increased almost fifty times since the first quarter of 2017 to the first quarter of 2018. The fact that we will continue to import extraordinarily large quantities of standardized medical cannabis to Europe is greatly added value, in particular for patients, but also for pharmacists & doctors and underlines the company’s high level of professionalism as an established wholesaler. ”
Transparency, trust and reliability are among the core values of Cannamedical® Pharma. As a special service, and a first in Germany, doctors and pharmacists now have the opportunity to obtain information about the respective cannabinoid and terpene profile for each MedReleaf variety from the Cologne based wholesaler
“Terpenes have been underestimated for a long time. Today, however, one can assume that they play an essential part in the medical mode of action and are therefore of great importance for the therapy recommendation, “explains Katrin Rinas, Medical Advisor at Cannamedical®.
MedReleaf is one of the few GMP and ISO 9001 certified cannabis manufacturers in North America that is able to produce continuous homogeneous cannabis varieties.
