The tender of the “Cannabis Agency” in Bonncomprises a total volume of 10,400 kg of cannabis spread over four years, each weighing 2,600 kg. This was announced by the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) on Friday. It is not the first attempt to realize cultivation in Germany.

Following the liberalization of the substance in the spring of 2017 , the BfArM had announced a first call for tender, to which 118 companies had applied. In March, however, the Düsseldorf Higher Regional Court stopped the proceedings: The judges agreed with the view of a company that the deadline for submitting documents after a procedural change was too short.

The contract will be awarded to producers in the first half of 2019. In the end, a contract will be signed with at least three companies for the cultivation, harvest, processing and delivery of cannabis in standardized pharmaceutical quality.

So far, medical cannabis is imported from abroad, mainly from the Netherlands and Canada. Medical hemp was a niche in Germany until liberalization, with only about 1,000 sick people having a special permit. Since liberalization, doctors and pharmacists report a sharp rise in demand for prescription cannabis.

The cannabis drug THC can relieve not only pain but also spasticity, such as multiple sclerosis, and nausea after chemotherapy. It should also help against epilepsy. The medical effectiveness is partly controversial.
