UG: Approval for Uganda's bid to export cannabis

A team from the European Union has approved Uganda’s medical marijuana products, paving the way for local cannabis growers to tap into the global legal marijuana market.

Sources told Daily Monitor that a team of medical cannabis inspectors from the Netherlands inspected marijuana gardens in Hima, Kasese District between July 29 and August 4. They met in Kampala before they issued a certificate of compliance to Industrial Globus Uganda Ltd covering (August 6, 2019 - August 5, 2020.)

Mr Benjamin Cadet, a company director, at the weekend confirmed EU approval and explained that Industrial Globus Uganda Ltd is a trading company for a joint venture between Industrial Hemp Uganda and Together Pharma of Israel.

“Control Union Certifications is the EU mandated body for certification of the medical cannabis. Now that EU has approved our products - the medical marijuana exports and the entire manufacturing chain - from planting to harvest, we are going to export medical marijuana products made in Uganda to European markets,” Mr Cadet said.
