Where does big business lurk? When will legalisation take place and how is the German market for medical cannabis developing? After the euphoria of the last few years, hemp entrepreneurs and investors have become more pragmatic.
Drapalin Pharmaceuticals GmbH is an importer and wholesaler of medicinal cannabis of high pharmaceutical quality and is now making an EU-GMP compliant strain from Lesotho, a landlocked country in South Africa, available to the German market. The product is an indica-dominant hybrid of the Californian variety White Lemon and the local variety Marakabei Local with a high THC content.
German wholesaler Drapalin has become the first company to import medicinal cannabis from Africa. The EU-GMP compliant strain is produced in Lesotho and imported to Germany.
There are, by now, many women working in the ranks of the cannabis industry everywhere. In the international space, they come from literally every walk of life and profession before they “graduated” to cannabis – and in some cases are starting their career working in the space. They are also increasingly taking their places as some of the most integral cogs of the wheel – even if they are still in short supply at the top of companies and on boards.
The last four years since medical cannabis has been legalized have brought both praise and criticism. And now? Now is time to improve what can be improved. We asked experts from industry, politics, medicine, and also lawyers and patients: What do they see as future opportunities and risks and what are their wishes for the future of medical cannabis in Germany? After the federal elections, there are good chances that the new government will readjust the law on cannabis as medicine.

Wir haben Ärzte, Unternehmer:innen, Anwälte:inne und Berater:innen, Apotheker, Patienten:innen, Verbände und Politiker:innen gefragt: Hat das Gesetz gehalten, was es versprochen hat?
Linseed oil, walnut oil or avocado oil - the choice of edible oils has long since gone beyond the classics such as sunflower or olive oil. Hemp oil also counts as one of the healthiest vegetable cooking oils and is more popular than ever for good reason. But what makes hemp oil so unique and valuable? Is it deservingly receiving more and more attention? We take a look behind the scenes.
