Export increases to 2500 kilograms a year

The Netherlands accepts the German request for 1000 extra kilograms of medicinal marijuana

The demand for medicinal marijuana in Germany has increased, which is why the Netherlands was requested to export an additional 1000 kilograms of medicinal cannabis to their neighbors in the east, as the Minister of Medical Care and Sport, Bruno Bruins writes in a letter to the Dutch House of Representatives. He states that the current Dutch production capacity is capable of meeting the increase in demand. The request has been therefore accepted.

The amount Germany is expected to need does not need to be delivered right away, but will be spread out over the year. While taking into account the production process and capacity that are currently available, The Bureau Medicinal Cannabis (BMC) will discuss together with the growers how much of the product can be delivered each period.

With the expectation that Germany is well on their way to being self-sufficient, Bruins, after discussing with the BMC, has decided to accept the request. This means that Germany will be receiving a maximum of 2500 kg of medicinal marijuana to provide the German patients that have a prescription with, from 2019 until the end of 2020. Whether or not the maximum amount will also be delivered shall depend on the amount of hand in prescriptions in German pharmacies.
