Canify AG (formerly Bavaria Weed GmbH) is one of the first pharmaceutical companies with a manufacturing licence for the unlimited importation, packaging and market release of raw materials of cannabis in the European Union. Due to the in-house production, the company is able to purchase raw materials of cannabis from approved manufacturers in large quantities, to store them almost indefinitely, and package it as an active ingredient and/or medicine and market it in Europe with their own label or as a third-label product. The company distributes its products to European pharmaceutical wholesalers as well as directly to pharmacies.
Since March 2017, the sale of cannabis for medical purposes has been legal in Germany and is subject to the strict regulations of the Cannabis Agency of the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices, as well as the health authorities of the federal states. Since then, medical cannabis has been available in German pharmacies upon presentation of a prescription. More and more patients are switching from conventional preparations to alternative medicinal cannabis because, unlike conventional painkillers, it is not physically addictive.
The German market offers extremely high growth potential for Canify, as certified production in Germany means that raw materials of cannabis can be imported in correspondingly high quantities, stocked, processed according to demand and thus delivered in real time. Canify will be the first manufacturer to be able to guarantee pharmacies a delivery capability of 24 hours from receipt of order.
