The use of medicinal cannabis has been allowed in Germany for two years now. But because domestic cultivation hasn't gotten off the ground yet, the plant has been imported, mainly from Canada. That might change soon. While Canadians were at the forefront of exporting the plant, "they have failed to deliver to all regions in Europe, and Germany for that matter," said Frankfurt-based entrepreneur Niklas Kouperanis. Bottlenecks have also been reported by Georg Wurth of the German Hemp Association (DHV). "At the moment, there's next to nothing coming in from Canada as companies there are preoccupied with their home market," he said.
