EMMAC Secures Pharmaceutical Wholesaler and Narcotics Handling Permits for Germany

31 March 2020, London. EMMAC Life Sciences Group, Europe’s leading independent cannabis company, is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, About Nature Health GmbH (“About Nature”), has secured pharmaceutical wholesaler and narcotics handling permits for Germany, Europe’s largest medical cannabis market.  The permits, granted according to section 52a AMG (German Pharmaceutical Law) and section 3 BMG (German Narcotics Law), will enable  EMMAC to drive immediate revenue growth in Germany with the sale of medical cannabis products.  EMMAC has a range of medical cannabis products, with different strengths and THC/CBD/CBG formulations in Oil and Flos1 formats, to address a wide range of specialist requirements.

According to the Bank of Montreal2, the German medical cannabis market could potentially produce more than US$5 billion in revenue for global cannabis producers, with an assumption that in seven years 7.5% of sleep, anxiety and pain prescriptions in Germany will be replaced with medical cannabis.

Antonio Costanzo, CEO of EMMAC, said: “The announcement today is an important milestone for EMMAC, and demonstrates the EU GDP compliant quality management systems About Nature has in place. EMMAC is now poised to deliver immediate revenues from Germany, and capitalise on the significant opportunities presented by the largest medical cannabis market in Europe, as we bring our products to market in 2020.”
