Medical cannabis oral solutions
In September 2018, Tilray announced the successful import of Tilray 2:100 medical cannabis oil for a paediatric patient in need in the United Kingdom. Tilray’s 2:100 cannabis oil was supplied via a government-approved special access program following the UK Home Secretary’s historic announcement that declared prescriptions of cannabis-derived medicines legal for patients with an exceptional clinical need.
Sascha Mielcarek, Managing Director of Tilray Europe: “As demand ramps up in the UK, Tilray is well positioned to be a leading supplier of medical cannabis products.”
“Regulations are progressing as more and more countries across Europe are recognizing the benefits of medical cannabis and its potential to improve patients’ quality of life. We’re pleased to reaffirm our commitment to delivering medical cannabis to patients in the UK and look forward to offering a variety of GMP-certified, pharmaceutical-grade products in the coming months.”
