Case Report: Cannabis Associated with Improvements in a Patient with Refractory Stuttering

Warsaw, Poland: The use of herbal cannabis is associated with marked improvements in a patient with treatment-resistant stuttering, according to a case report published in the journal Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research.


Poland Pushes On: Cannabis Reform Is A Game of Inches

Here is the first thing you should know about the Polish cannabis discussion: People here go through extreme lengths to obtain cannabis if not set up shop. It sounds a lot like North America circa several years ago. That includes going to jail.

The country technically has passed medical reform, but this has mostly been driven by lobbyists and representatives of two large Canadian companies—namely Aurora and Canopy Growth. Indeed, Poland was on the map of both by 2018. Aurora announced its market entry, in fact, within a week of going public in New York. Canopy saw it as a market for its Danish product. 


With Some Interesting Regulatory Omissions, Poland Overwhelmingly Passed Medical Cannabis Bill

Poland’s recently instituted medical cannabis market is just starting to take off, with open-ended regulation related to the creation and exportation of products.

In Poland, drugs are governed by the Act on Counteracting Drug Addiction, which doesn’t make a differentiation between cannabis and other drugs. Simple possession or use can land a person in prison for three years. Poland is a treatment before prison country when it comes to drug use, and courts can order offenders into treatment programs instead of prison.


Warsaw Zoo hopes cannabis can help depressed elephant deal with loss of elder

They say elephants never forget, but workers at a zoo in Poland are hoping CBD can at least ease the pain a young female is dealing with after a death in her family.


Poland may become leading hemp producer in Europe

Industrial hemp is increasingly grown by Polish farmers. Last year, the sown area increased by almost 80 percent, to over 3,000 hectares. The development of this industry may have a positive impact on the entire economy, and Poland has the potential to become one of the main producers of hemp products in Europe. According to experts, the development of the domestic industry requires the introduction of standards ensuring greater competitiveness of production.

“Industrial hemp has a number of applications, recently also in the veterinary industry. Consequently, we have a huge increase in the number of plantations and interest in this plant,” Witold Czeszak, head of the Hemp Program at the Institute of Natural Fibers and Medicinal Plants in Poznań, said


Is the Polish medical cannabis market becoming more open?

Will the Polish medical cannabis market set itself ahead of the game in Europe as the medical cannabis industry evolves?

The Polish medical cannabis market is becoming more and more open. Does this mean that Poland, step by step will move towards further changes in legal regulations and in the future will become a leader in the medical cannabis market?

In order to answer the aforementioned question, one should consider such issues as how current Polish legal regulations affect the possibilities of placing medical cannabis on the market.


Poland to hold marijuana licensing lottery

Poland will hold its first marijuana licensing lottery from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday at the Town Office conference room.

The Town office is located at 1231 Main Street (Route 26).

At this year’s town meeting April 6, Poland residents voted to allow manufacturing facilities, testing facilities and registered caregiver retail stores for medical marijuana, and cultivation facilities, product-manufacturing facilities, testing facilities and stores for adult-use marijuana.

The authorization and regulation of marijuana production and sales will follow state regulations and the town’s comprehensive land use code.

There will be four lotteries, according to officials. In each, Poland residents will be drawn first.


Poland pushes forward on reform

Given all the fuss about newly opened markets in Europe of late (see all the hullabaloo recently in the UK), it would be remiss for anyone in the industry to forget about Poland.

The Eastern European country that shares a large part of its border (if not recent history and long cultural influence) with Deutschland has been proceeding slowly into the cannabis space for the last couple of years.

There are a couple of similarities (and differences too) about the market development in the country to its Teutonic sister to the West as well as the emerging fight over access that is sparking patient revolutions all over the continent now.


Aurora Cannabis receives first cannabis import permit from Polish Ministry of Health

Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE: ACB) (TSX: ACB) (Frankfurt: 21P; WKN: A1C4WM) announced today that Polish Ministry of Health granted the Company approval for its first shipment of medical cannabis to Poland. In the coming days, Aurora Deutschland GmbH will ship the products to a pain treatment center and a hospital in Warsaw. This is an important milestone for medical patients in Poland, as it is believed to be the first time a non-government run business has been granted approval to supply medical cannabis products in the country.


Poland enacts retail marijuana moratorium

The move delays creation of stores and production facilities for at least six months as statewide regulations are worked out.

Voters endorsed a $6.63 million municipal budget and imposed a moratorium on the retail sale of recreational marijuana during the town’s annual meeting Saturday.

The session drew 124 voters – a tiny fraction of the thousands eligible to participate – and lasted a couple of hours at the Poland Regional High School auditorium.

The meeting followed a townwide election Friday that attracted 319 voters.
