BERLIN, Aug. 19, 2021 -- Cantourage, one of Europe's leading providers of medical cannabis, has today launched its offering of high-quality medical cannabis flowers from Jamaica in Germany. Cantourage has successfully partnered with Australian-based Cannim, the leading cultivator of medicinal cannabis in Jamaica. Cannim will sell its products in the EU medical markets through the Cantourage Fast Track Access Platform. The agreement allows medical cannabis flowers from Jamaica to be made available to German patients for the first time.
Cantourage offers a unique end-to-end solution that enables the cultivator to ship its Jamaican-grown flower product Lumir to Germany. Cannim focuses on cultivation, while Cantourage manages the value chain from import to manufacturing and distribution to pharmacies. Through the introduction of new cultivars, Cantourage and Cannim are providing new treatment options for patients in Europe.
Philip Schetter, Co-CEO of Cantourage comments: "We are delighted to offer patients in Germany this unprecedented opportunity by bringing medical cannabis from Jamaica into the fast-growing European medical cannabis market for the first time. We are excited to offer Cannim's high-quality indica-dominant Lumir flowers in Europe and to further create access to the European market for medical cannabis from across the world through our platform. Cantourage continues to provide innovative cultivars and a safe, diverse supply for patients".
Stuart Marsh, Chief Commercial Officer of Cannim adds: "Germany represents an exciting opportunity for Cannim. Our ability to cultivate high quality, medical grade Jamaican cannabis that meets the strict standards of the German Pharmacopoeia is testament to the experience and expertise of our team in Jamaica. With our 500-acre plantation and over six cultivation circles per year, Cannim ensures continuous supply of medicinal cannabis all year round. Our partnership with Cantourage allows us to introduce our products to the European market and provide new therapy options for patients".
As of today, Cantourage is making Cannim's high-quality Lumir product available to patients in Germany. Cantourage will distribute the Lumir flowers to pharmacies in Germany, giving German patients and doctors reliable and ongoing access to the natural, high-quality Jamaican product.
Following the launch of the Cantourage platform in June 2021, 14 cultivators from across the globe have signed on to it. After the introduction of medical cannabis from Uruguay, Cannim's Jamaican Lumir is the second medical cannabis product entering the European market through the Fast Track Access Platform.
