Why do we invest one third of our total budget in research and development?

  • To expand the body of available evidence to support treatment with cannabis-based medicines
  • To guarantee the effectiveness and safety of our products
  • Because Innovation is part of our DNA as a company

We are Specialists for Plant-Based Medicines

Patients in focus: Patients do not suffer from their illnesses alone but also from the symptoms and burdens of coping with serious illness. The goal of our research is to develop cannabis-based products that have proven effective in relieving symptoms.


Complete control over the full value chain
