Medical Cannabis investor summit in Odense the 28th of January 2020

We are joining forces with Invest in Odense and NNE to host a major investor conference on medical cannabis. Denmark is an increasingly attractive location for medical cannabis activities including cultivation, manufacturing, R&D and exports to other markets.
Denmark offers a solid and reliable entry-point into the European medical cannabis market. In January 2018, the Danish government implemented a four-year medical cannabis pilot programme along with a special development scheme that provides licenses to grow and handle cannabis to develop medical cannabis based products. In November 2018, the government passed a subsequent motion to allow bulk exports of medical cannabis.

Several of the largest companies in the industry have already set up in Denmark, based on strong but transparent regulations, availability of expertise and experience from both the pharma and horticulture sectors, strong commitment to innovation, sustainability, and cutting edge automated production methods, and opportunities for growth in the Danish and European markets.  

Top reasons for choosing Denmark for medical cannabis activities

  • Attractive framework conditions with strong government support for medical cannabis and a transparent regulatory regime. 
  • Access to expertise in pharma production including availability of expertise in developing GMP compliant facilities and processes.
  • Proximity to main EU markets including Germany with excellent infrastructure for exports, transport and shipping.
  • Strong plant genetics and breeding ecosystem.
  • A well-funded healthcare system offering partial reimbursement for medical cannabis based products and an efficient retail pharmacy network for product distribution.
  • No medical cannabis production cap or quotas.
  • Availability of land and high degree of agricultural automation.
  • Access to reliable green power at a low cost.
  • Skilled horticulture and manufacturing labour force, with training modules available to reinforce skills specific to the production of medical cannabis.
