With our expertise in the manufacturing of plant-based medicines, we are committed to unlocking the significant therapeutic potential of this medicinal plant to benefit patients around the world
Patients in focus
Patients do not suffer from their illnesses alone but also from the symptoms and the burdens that come from coping with serious illness. The goal of our research is to develop cannabis-based products that have proven effective in relieving symptoms and improving quality of life.
We seek to bring relief to seriously ill patients.
This is why we are continuously developing and improving high quality cannabis extracts and APIs.
- With a standardized, predictable and consistent effects batch for batch
- Which fulfill all EU regulatory specifications and quality standards
- In a state-of-the-art pharmaceutical production facility that is Made in Germany
We cannot add days to a life but we can add life to days

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) was first identified in the 1990s and is far from being fully understood by modern medical science. As the name suggests, the endocannabinoid system is endogenous to the human body and is present in some form in all organs and tissues. It is comprised of cannabinoid receptors, endogenous cannabinoids and enzymes that both synthesise and degrade these cannabinoids.1

MEDICAL CANNABIS ACCESS
The cannabis plant has traditionally been used for therapeutic purposes for many hundreds, if not thousands, of years. In recent years, more and more patients and doctors have renewed interest in medical cannabis therapies. Countries around the world are granting patients access to medical cannabis albeit with very different rules and regulations. National healthcare authorities can inform patients and doctors about the status of access to these therapies in individual countries.
