Germany’s Medical Cannabis Flower Imports Hit Record High
Submitted by Marijuana News on Mon, 02/22/2021 - 10:06
The final quarter of 2020 saw medical cannabis flower imports into Germany reach more than 3.2 tonnes.
Prohibition Partners reports Germany saw 37% year-on-year growth in flower imports. However, the year-on-year growth was well down on 2018 and 2019, which both topped 100%.
The situation in Germany has been the result of problematic implementation of domestic production, although the first locally cultivated and manufactured medical cannabis products should be available in March this year, with domestic cultivators expected to supply Germany with at least 2,600 kilograms of medical cannabis per year.
Last year, the total amount of dried cannabis flower imported into the country was 9,249 kilograms.
The situation to this point in Germany has been a positive one for exporters from other countries, including Australia. Among the Australian companies to ink deals in Germany are Althea and Little Green Pharma. Australian Natural Therapeutics Group (ANTG) produced cannabis flower has reportedly been available in Germany since late last year.
