Linneo Health launches high THC content medicinal cannabis varieties into major global markets
New 22% and 25% THC content medicinal cannabis strains have been shipped to customers in Germany and the UK, two of the largest global medicinal cannabis markets.
Madrid, Spain, 22 March 2023: Linneo Health, a global leader in the research, cultivation and supply of cannabis to improve human health and wellbeing, today announces the strengthening of its medicinal cannabis offering with the addition of two cannabis varieties with high tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content. These new strains, with 22% and 25% THC content, complement the Company’s existing broad portfolio and first batches have been shipped to customers in Germany and the UK, two of the leading medicinal cannabis markets.
Linneo’s newly developed cannabis varieties have been designed to contain higher THC levels, which may be beneficial in the development of medicinal cannabis products targeting a broader range of therapeutic areas. They add to the Company’s diversified product portfolio, which includes medicinal cannabis varieties with different sativa to indica ratios that customers can tailor for patients’ needs in a broad spectrum of indications. This is another demonstration of Linneo executing on its strategy to continually develop medicinal cannabis strains that address the market needs.
The new varieties come from well understood cultivation processes and possess premium genetics, with additional exclusive features including a high total terpene content over 3%, providing higher chemical diversity.
Enrique Borras, Commercial Director at Linneo Health, said: “These new varieties of medicinal cannabis expand Linneo’s offering and demonstrate our commitment to continuous innovation in order to provide our customers with the cutting edge in medicinal cannabis, to improve human health and wellbeing.
“There is a need for greater innovation into tailored medicinal cannabis strains that can cater to patients’ health needs, and we are delighted to be playing a role in this growing field by providing our new strains to customers in Germany and the UK, the two largest medicinal cannabis markets in Europe. These strains are an indicator of our ongoing portfolio expansion and we look forward to sharing further news on our increasing product offering.”
