Jamaican Lumir medical cannabis is readily available for purchase in  German pharmacies. August 19 was the official launch date of the product into the German medical cannabis market.

Cantourage, a Germany-based firm has agreed with Australia-based Cannim to import Jamaican flower products into Germany and also to distribute the drug to pharmacies, as well as licensed cannabis dispensaries in the country.


The Undersupply of medical marijuana in Germany

Since the legalization of medical marijuana in 2017, Germany has become a top contender for the fastest-growing market for medical cannabis across Europe.

However, the sector has been unable to meet the local demand for medical marijuana due to the limited cultivation of cannabis within Germany's borders. Due to this, the country has had to depend on a steady stream of medical marijuana imports from trusted sources despite UN drug treaties banning cannabis shipments, around the world. With this, the ever-increasing demand can be met at affordable rates to the patients.

On the other hand, Jamaica is a country popular for its cannabis products and the widespread acceptance of marijuana and marijuana-derived products by residents. The government has also capitalized on the historical roots of cannabis in the Caribbean country.

Jamaica has numerous companies that have created quite a number of unique products. An example of this is the Cannim brand and its production of Jamaican Lumir for medical marijuana patients.


Jamaican Lumir Cannabis Flower

Lumir is Cannim's medical flower product. It is a tested and proven potent cannabis product that can be used to manage disease conditions in medical patients.

Named after Profesor Lumir Ondrej Hanus, the Lumir flowers are indica-dominant and have been analyzed and researched for several months before it's release to the public.

Professor Lumir is a Czech analytical chemist with expert knowledge of hashish. The professor has over 50 years of experience in the field and he became popular after he successfully isolated anandamide—a very important endocannabinoid. A few years ago, he was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at CanEx, Jamaica.

The Partnership Between Cannim and Cantourage

The agreement reached by both parties states that the cultivation aspect will be handled by cannim, while the importation and distribution of the drugs will be handled by the Cantourage.

The fast track platform will be used to provide the best cultivars in a safe and diverse supply path for patients. He also added that just a few companies are currently dominating the European medical marijuana market.

Schetter believes that in no time, Cantourage will also be able to clear all the foreseen hurdles that come with selling medical cannabis across countries in Europe. He claims that the competition from the existing companies will help reduce the price of the Drugs, hence making them more affordable and accessible to patients. The company will be enlarging the pool of options medical marijuana patients have to choose the most suitable drug from.

Stuart Marsh, Chief commercial officer of Cannim also made a statement. He ensured that Lumir fits the many regulations for medical marijuana patients in Germany.

Marsh said that the company will be able to supply medical marijuana drugs all year, as the company has a cannabis plantation with an expense of over 500-acres. Reports state that the farm boasts of over six cultivation cycles each year.

Marsh added that Germany presents a fresh challenge for Cannim and the brand felt honored to be approved to sell its flower products within Europe. Marsh ended by stating that the new partnership with Cantourage is set to provide new therapy alternatives for Germans with various medical conditions.


The Product Line

This will involve dispensing the Lumir flowers to licensed pharmacies within Germany. The team will also provide doctors and patients with reliable access to the potent Jamaican marijuana drug.

It is too early to state whether or not Cannim will be offering its three unique 30ml tincture blends products.
