• Cantourage launches new craft cultivar on the German medicinal cannabis market with grower Ostara Médical.
  • With the cultivar "Bubblegum Biscotti X Grape Gasoline", the Canadian grower enters the European market for the first time.
  • Ostara Médical plans to supply patients in Germany, Europe and the UK with further varieties of its premium product range.

Berlin, 22 February 2023 – Cantourage, the Berlin based cannabis company and Canadian cultivator, Ostara Médical announce the launch of a new medicinal cannabis strain this week. The cultivar "Bubblegum Biscotti X Grape Gasoline", is a premium strain now available to patients in Germany, further expanding their range of high-quality “Craft Cannabis” strains in the German cannabis market.

The new cultivar is grown in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Canada, where Ostara Médical selectively cultivates hand-selected small batches of cannabis on a 10,000 square metres site. Until now, Ostara Médical has exclusively supplied the Canadian medical and recreational market. However, the young company plans to significantly expand its cultivation capacity this year.

Dr. Nickel Dittrich, Director Project Management, commented: "We are excited to have Ostara Médical as another craft grower in our portfolio. With our unique sourcing model, we can bring cannabis flowers from growers all over the world to Germany, manufacture them into medicinal products and offer them throughout Europe. In the coming weeks and months, patients can expect further products and cultivars available in Germany for the first time."

Philippe Ringuette, CEO von Ostara Médical, added: "Germany and the rest of Europe are currently the most interesting cannabis markets in the world. We are proud to be part of this at an early stage through our partnership with Cantourage. At Ostara Médical, we are committed to helping patients improve their quality of life with our products. We are pleased to be working with Cantourage to bring our high-quality flowers from Québec to Germany."
