XPhyto Therapeutics Corp. is pleased to announce that the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) has granted XPhyto’s wholly owned German subsidiary, Bunker Pflanzenextrakte GmbH (‘Bunker’), a cannabis cultivation and extraction licence for scientific purposes.
Cultivating up to 70 different strains of cannabis sativa and indica
Subject to meeting BfArM security requirements, the licence is valid and authorises the company to cultivate and extract up to 70 different strains of Cannabis sativa and indica for scientific purposes at Bunker’s high-security facility located in a monitored security area in the south of Germany.
Hugh Rogers, CEO of XPhyto said: “XPhyto’s German cannabis cultivation and extraction licence is a unique opportunity for our European operations.
“With a focus on Canada and Germany, we are building an industry leading medical cannabis company focused on pharmaceutical-grade quality and scientific validation.
“Germany is emerging as the largest legal medical cannabis market in the world and we expect it to grow to be a multi-billion-dollar industry within five years. XPhyto is well positioned as a first-mover in this exciting market,” noted Robert Barth, VP European Corporate Development of XPhyto and Managing Director of Bunker.”
