Cannabis legislation in Europe is a complex landscape which is constantly evolving, with laws applying differently in each territory. One thing is for certain though. The medical cannabis scene is opening up.

Once you have decided where you want to base your operations, you will need to undergo a process to obtain a license. Whether this is for cultivation, product formulation, design, distribution or retail sales, we are able to advise you on the license suitable for your needs. The team will be able to fully project manage the application phase.
