All eyes are on Germany internationally this year as the country is still on track for recreational cannabis reform. But what does it take to do business now and in the immediate future?
Everyone in the international cannabis industry in certain parts of the world, wants access to Germany. It is one of the largest medical cannabis markets globally and certainly in total euro value, the most valuable. Unlike any in North America, is still reliant on EU GMP certified flos (flower) of the non-hemp and high THC variety. This in and of itself is an issue for anyone producing in another country, let alone outside of Europe.
Many wiggles also exist for getting CBD, of any shape into German sales streams, particularly if it is imported.
