Germany receives first medical cannabis imports from Portugal and Australia

Germany received its first imports of medicinal cannabis from Portugal and Australia this week. Two German companies took delivery of the shipments that will be used for testing purposes and to supply the country’s growing demand for medical marijuana, which was legalized in 2017.

In Cologne, Cannamedical Pharma received a commercial shipment of cannabis from a company in Portugal. Although the company did not identify the shipper, last month Tilray Portugal announced that it had come to an agreement with Cannamedical to export medicinal cannabis to Germany.

Marijuana in China: Why the World’s second-largest hemp producer can’t stand cannabis

Growing up part of the Chinese-Canadian community, the prevailing attitude my seniors had towards cannabis was always the same – it’s addictive, and it will ruin your life.

And now that we’re in a post-legalization Canada, Chinese-Canadians are still hesitant to challenge this perspective.

Black market pot entered CannTrust facility, flowed into legal market last year: Sources

Senior operating staff working at CannTrust Holdings Inc.’s Pelham, Ont. facility late last year brought cannabis seeds from the black market into production rooms, leading to some illicitly-grown pot flowing into the legal market, according to internal company documents obtained by BNN Bloomberg and four sources directly familiar with the matter.

The documents suggest that, in an apparent effort to conceal the black market cannabis seeds from regulatory inspections and other staff members, some CannTrust employees changed the names of as many as 20 strains to those which the company was licensed to sell in the legal medical and recreational markets.

Investors have focused on these companies since their survival in the growing industry seems to be more likely than some of the smaller companies that are at risk of being crowded out.

Mid-sized companies have gone slightly under the radar, leaving them with reasonable valuations and offering investors a major opportunity if it’s taken soon.

As Canada moves toward the second wave of legalization, these mid-sized companies are poised to break out, especially in the coming months, as a lot of new capacity comes online with construction projects finishing.
