Cannamedical® Pharma successfully imports the first medicinal cannabis from Portugal to Germany, representing the largest-ever shipment of medicinal cannabis from an EU country to Germany


Cologne, September 9th, 2019 – On September 9th, Cannamedical® Pharma GmbH, a leading cannabis distributor and one of the best-known medicinal cannabis brands in Germany and the European Union, imported from Portugal to Germany, the largest quantity of medicinal cannabis ever transported within the European Union.

“The European market is clearly developing its ability to grow and ship world-class medicinal cannabis products, which is an important step in the development of the EU medicinal cannabis market, which we believe will be the world’s largest. Cannamedical continues to demonstrate that our approach as the leading independent importer of finding the best products in all supply markets to serve to our patients can establish milestones within the industry,” says David Henn, CEO of Cannamedical. “We are proud of the contribution we are making to provide a stable supply of medicinal cannabis to patients in Germany and thankful for our world-class supply partners.”

Once the packaging process is complete, the imported Cannamedical product is expected to be available to patients beginning in mid-October. Cannamedical continues to be the only independent medicinal cannabis importer to successfully distribute products under its own brand name in Germany.

With this import, Cannamedical continues to expand its global network of suppliers within the cannabis industry. Cannamedical announced in May 2019 that it had entered into three international supply agreements with suppliers of medicinal cannabis flowers and extracts and has since initiated two additional EU-GMP certifications for supplier partners. The company currently holds a total of 9 supply agreements with partners across three continents.

Cannamedical Pharma GmbH is the largest independent importer and distributor of medicinal cannabis in Germany. Cannamedical was founded by David Henn in November 2016 and its 50+ employees are based in Cologne. In early 2019, Cannamedical raised €15M from New York and Hamburg-based investment firm Orkila Capital. The company recently expanded its management team with the addition of Chief Commercial Officer, Dr. Thomas Baur and Head of Quality Assurance, Dr. Ralf Bradenahl.
