- TORONTO, June 8, 2021– MediPharm Labs Corp. (TSX: LABS) (OTCQX: MEDIF) (FSE: MLZ) (“MediPharm” or the “Company”), a global leader in specialized, research-driven pharmaceutical-quality development and manufacture of cannabis API and derivative products, is pleased to announce that it has extended its supply agreement (the Agreement) with ADREXpharma® GmbH (“ADREX”), a leading developer and distributor of medicinal cannabis in the European market. The Agreement was renewed for 5 years, to June 2026, with a mutual option to extend further.
MediPharm supplies ADREX with high quality, purity assured, THC and CBD cannabis products for sale and distribution in Germany to approximately 19,000 pharmacies that could provide access to cannabis products over time.
Over the past year, with the support of ADREX, MediPharm has firmly established its presence and foothold in Germany as the go-to-supplier of cannabis products and regulatory leader in the field of cannabis for pharmaceutical companies. MediPharm and ADREX pioneered and progressed German regulatory acceptance of EU GMP cannabis API and finished dosed products from Canada and Australia.
As a result, MediPharm successfully completed its first shipment of cannabis product to ADREX in Q1 2021 and is on track to deliver its next shipments to Germany in Q2 2021.
“With our global platform purpose built to good manufacturing practices, MediPharm has established a strong foothold in the nascent, but burgeoning, German cannabis market,” said Keith Strachan, President and Interim CEO, MediPharm. “Our collaboration with ADREX has been an important and strategic step in our growth in this attractive market. We will continue to work together, combining ADREX’s experience and local networks with our licences, production and supply chain capabilities, to ensure German patients gain access to the high-quality cannabis products they can trust.”
We are excited having launched the first products produced by MediPharm in the growing German market and to expand our international footprint with this strategic collaboration,” said Mario Eimuth, Founding Partner, ADREXpharma. “Our mission is to serve and offer the best therapeutical options to all patients in need in Germany. MediPharm is a leading global manufacturer of medical cannabis products and we are looking forward to expanding our partnership even further in the next coming months in order to meet the increasing demand in the German market.”
Germany has become Europe’s largest market with a patient base that has grown to 128,000. This helped drive Germany’s medical cannabis market sales up 34% in 2020. Also, according to Prohibition Partners latest European report, Germany’s patient base is expected to continue to increase as development of the medical cannabis system is still ongoing, with the streamlining of wholesale pricing regulations being an important next step. The market is also expected to continue to move towards more extract-based medicine instead of flower-based products.
ADREXpharma® GmbH is an independent German pharmaceutical company which is specialized in the development and distribution of medicinal cannabis in the European market. ADREXpharma developed several dosages (extracts, powder, resin, flowers) for the growing pharma market in Germany. Due to its unique supply network, ADREXpharma serves all of the approximate 19,000 pharmacies in Germany and is market-leader in pharmacies for several product categories. ADREXpharma is committed to quality, authenticity and innovation, as well as to contributing to the growing body of evidence-based research regarding the benefits and efficacy of cannabis to validate new therapy options for patients. ADREXpharma aims to provide the best possible treatment for medical cannabis patients – today and always.
