BERLIN, June 29, 2023 – Cantourage Group SE (hereinafter “Cantourage,” ISIN: DE000A3DSV01), a leading European company for the production and distribution of medical cannabis, has announced that it has been able to partner with four major producers to supply the European medical cannabis market in only one month, namely: Green Karat, Costa Canna, MedColCanna and Roxton Air. This unprecedented pace of expanding the partner network attests to Cantourage’s stronger position and continued momentum in the European cannabis market. This means an even better supply of high-quality cannabis flower in the future for people in Germany, who can already obtain medical cannabis as a medicine through pharmacies.

Cantourage has laid the groundwork for these partnerships in recent years, establishing a proven and efficient model with its “Fast Track Access” platform that enables the best international growers to bring their products to the European market quickly and efficiently. Since the platform’s launch in 2021, Cantourage has brought a total of 17 growers to Germany. In the first half of 2023, eight partners launched a product on the German market for the first time, including four now in June alone. The newly acquired partners bring a variety of expertise and specialties to the partnership:

Green Karat: With four specially equipped flower rooms and an annual cultivation capacity of 1,500 kg, Green Karat is ideally positioned for the cultivation of craft cannabis. Headquartered in Québec, Canada, the company is run by a small but highly skilled team with many years of experience, largely made up of friends and family of the founders, who have been working together in a spirit of trust for a long time. Green Karat places great importance on growing small batches of premium cannabis flowers to ensure outstanding quality, which also enjoys great popularity in the cannabis pioneer country Canada.

Costa Canna operates its state-of-the-art cannabis cultivation facility on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. The company is known for its stringent breeding practices and advanced genetics, with the goal of developing some of the most exceptional cannabis cultivars in the industry. In partnership with the Cowichan Tribes (First Nations), the company offers an extensive portfolio of products that it distributes to the Canadian market through medical platform partners as well as retail stores.

MedColCanna, a company based in Colombia that specializes in the cultivation of high quality THC flower. As one of South America’s leading cannabis growers, MedColCanna is known for environmental sustainability and social responsibility. For example, the company utilizes the country’s abundant renewable energy sources in the Andes and recycles rainwater to irrigate its cultivation facility. MedColCanna is also committed to fair working conditions and wages in its home country, as well as a non-judgmental approach to medical cannabis.

Roxton Air, a young cannabis cultivation company based in the small town of Roxton Pond near Montréal, Canada, stands out for its innovative aeroponic vertical cannabis cultivation. The vertical cultivation towers allow for optimal use of space while ensuring meticulous monitoring and control of each plant to ensure consistent high quality.
“The fact that we were able to bring four new, high-profile cannabis cultivators to the German market in only one month underscores the attractiveness and effectiveness of our platform. More and more top-notch international growers are now approaching us to partner up. New partnerships are thus becoming easier and faster for us to establish. This shows that our model not only works, but is also perceived as a showcase model in the industry. We are proud to be in a position to offer patients an even greater choice of premium quality medical cannabis products.” Philip Schetter, CEO of Cantourage, is convinced.
