Medical cannabis was exported from Australia to Germany for the first time, Frankfurt-based importer of medical cannabis Cansativa announced Tuesday.

Western Australia-based Little Green Pharma supplied the samples.

The authorized shipment consisted of samples to be used only for testing, but Cansativa said in a news release that 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.

Fleta Solomon, managing director of Little Green Pharma, also believes the shipment is an important milestone. “It’s a proof of concept to ensure all regulatory hurdles are met,” she told MJBizDaily.

“This means we are now very close to exporting Australia’s first cannabinoid medicines for German patients whose lives will be impacted positively.”

Only a handful of suppliers are currently exporting to Germany, including Canada and the Netherlands.

Germany’s first domestic cannabis grows are underway, but the tendered quantities are not expected to be enough to cover the country’s growing demand once the first harvests take place at the end of 2020.

Cansativa announced in April it was the first German importer authorized to import cannabis samples from Colombia and Uruguay, with the product coming from Clever Leaves and Fotmer, respectively.
