Germany receives first cannabis samples from Australia, commercial import from Portugal

It’s a big week for Germany’s medical marijuana market, which received its first cannabis imports from Australia and Portugal.

Frankfurt-based Cansativa took delivery of medical cannabis oils for testing purposes from Western Australia-based Little Green Pharma.

Cannamedical Pharma of Cologne received a shipment of commercial medical cannabis from an unidentified Portugal company. However, Tilray Portgual announced in August it had reached an agreement to import medical cannabis to Cannamedical.

Cansativa’s shipment consisted of samples to be used only for testing, but the company said in a news release it is “an important step for commercializing Australian cannabis in Europe.”

Benedikt Sons, CEO of Cansativa, confirmed to Marijuana Business Daily that the samples, consisting of cannabis oil, arrived in Germany and will be tested in the following days.
