  • Cantourage brings “Craft” cannabis strain from the Canadian grower Plantations Cérès to the German medical market
  • Plantations Cérès already the fourth “Craft” cannabis grower to supply Cantourage

Berlin, April 14, 2023 – Cantourage Group SE (hereinafter “Cantourage,” ISIN: DE000A3DSV01), a leading European company for the production and distribution of cannabis-based medicines, has announced its partnership with another “Craft” cannabis grower. Through the collaboration, Plantations Cérès is entering the European cannabis market for the first time with its “Slurricane Mint” strain and thus now also offering patients in this country additional therapeutic options.

With Plantations Cérès, Cantourage is adding a fourth “Craft” grower to its partner network, after Miracle Valley, Ostara Médical and LOT420, thus further expanding its range of “Craft” cannabis. This is in particularly high demand among patients due to its high quality. Cantourage has been supplying its “Craft” varieties to the medical market in the UK as well as Germany since December 2022.

Plantations Cérès is a family-run company based in St-Liguori, Québec. With more than 20 years of growing experience and with the help of state-of-the-art technologies, the growers are dedicated to the cultivation of high-quality “Craft” cannabis. The guiding principle here is quality over quantity. The focus on distributing small batches from controlled cultivation pays off in consistently high quality.

Philip Schetter, CEO of Cantourage, commented: “We are pleased to announce the cooperation with Plantations Cérès from Canada. We are convinced that the experience that our new cultivation partner brings as well as the quality of its products represent added value for the European market. The collaboration will allow us to further expand our range of high potency medicinal cannabis flowers to meet the growing demand for ‘Craft’ cannabis.”

Alexandre Lachapelle, founder of Plantations Cérès, said: “We built our production facility to the highest industry standards. One of our goals from the beginning was to also bring our strains to the European medical cannabis market. Thanks to our partnership with Cantourage, this is now possible. We are very grateful and happy that we can now help patients in Germany and Europe through our collaboration with Cantourage.”
