The week in marijuana deals: A factory revival, hemp heats up and destination Germany

The Aurora, Cannimed mega-merger wasn’t the only deal in the marijuana space this past week. Here’s a few you may have missed.

Last week’s weed headlines were dominated by the billion-dollar deal between Aurora Cannabis Inc. and Cannimed Therapeutics Inc., whose management teams came together after months of bickering to lay the groundwork for marijuana’s first mega-merger.

As the drama unfolded, plenty of other deals were getting done across the industry. Here’s a few you may have missed:

Why Germans love marijuana to kill pain

This isn’t Cheech and Chong’s weed — Germany’s medical marijuana users are people tired of popping powerful pills to ease pain. Facing a cannabis import crisis, the country is now starting to grow its own.

Chronically and terminally ill patients in Germany can’t get enough cannabis. Demand for medical marijuana has far outstripped supply since becoming legally available early last year to patients suffering from debilitating pain.


Nuuvera breaks ground on medical cannabis packaging facility in Germany

Nuuvera Deutschland has broken ground on a new facility in Germany for storage and packaging of medical cannabis products.

Located in Bad Bramstedt, in northern Germany, the 11,300ft² facility features security and related technology and will be built in compliance with the most stringent requirements for the storage of controlled substances in Germany and the EU.

Planned to be built in two phases, the storage and packaging facility will help meet the increasing demand for medical cannabis products.

Nuuvera CEO Lorne Abony said that the new facility will help the company in continuing to develop into a major supplier of medical cannabis products to German consumers.

Germany is burning marijuana tor heat

When it comes to combating the wicked war on weed, it is typical for law enforcement agencies all across the globe to destroy seized marijuana. It is sort of a chubby middle finger buried in the sphincter of the culture of all highness, a combustible sacrifice to the proverbial gods of government, just to let them know that pigs are still running the farm.

But in Germany, where President Trump’s version of American politics was born and bred through occult magick, incestuous orgies and good old-fashioned brute force, police are apparently using the marijuana confiscated from large black market busts to heat the homes of Munich residents.

That’s right, the pigs are turning pot into power.


No clear evidence of ancestry differences between Sativa- and Indica-labelled cannabis

Cologne, Germany - Cannabis labelled ‘Sativa’ and ‘Indica’ may not come from distinct ancestries, according to a study performed by the Canadian Dalhousie University in cooperation with Bedrocan on the genetic differences between the two types and their hybrids.

In this study 149 Dutch cannabis samples were analysed, correlating the genotype and chemotype to their reported ancestries.

Indica- and Sativa-labelled samples were not as distinct as sub species would be assumed to be, but the genetic differences between them do correlate to their terpene profile (resin fragrance), which could explain the variation between them.

Volatility in cannabis land: will it affect prices for consumers?

The debate about the price of cannabis as well as its imminent “collapse” or price hikes has been around since there has been a legal market.

In general, the conventional wisdom is a bit off the mark. For the most part, even when it is accurate, it is highly regional and at best temporal, subject to uncertain if short-lived winds. Why? Every cannabis market these days is a different animal thanks to regulations. Further, the American state focussed industry is very different from any other country right now. Canada, Germany, Israel and Australia are more alike to each other than any similarities they share with the U.S. state industry. In any state.


Cannabis improves speech of tourette syndrome patients

In Patients With Tourette Syndrome

Hannover, Germany: The daily administration of cannabinoids is associated with improved speech fluency in patients with Tourette Syndrome (TS), according to a pair of case reports published in The International Journal of Molecular Sciences.

A pair of researchers from the Hannover Medical School in Germany assessed the impact of daily cannabinoid treatment in two TS patients with treatment-resistant vocal blocking tics. One patient underwent therapy utilizing THC-dominant whole-plant cannabis. The other utilized dronabinol (oral THC).
