05/31/2018: High demand for medical cannabis import to Germany

The demand for medical cannabis imports to Germany has increased strongly since the amendment of the law of 10.03.2017.

While only 1.060 kg of medical cannabis were imported between November 2008 and March 2017, 2.100 kg of medical cannabis were imported between September 2107 and March 2018, according to the german government.

In addition, 6 importers have applied for an increase in imports of more than 21.000 kg.

The number of patients is already around 15.000 cannabis patients and could reach around 100.000 – 200.000 patients in 1-2 years.

The demand for imports could be even higher, because the Higher Regional Court of Duesseldorf had in the meantime stopped the award procedure for cultivation in Germany on 28.03.2018 (Az: VII-Verg 40/17) and the

2019 deadline can therefore no longer be met.
