Medicinal cannabis was legalized in Germany in 2017. The regulatory framework to launch pharmaceuticals with cannabinoids, however, is hard to navigate for producers and distributors that want to excel in the German market.
We successfully launched multiple products and understand the regulatory requirements and the quickest pathways to market.
