A 7 year cannabis partnership between Israel and the Canadian company, Organigram was just established. Organigram will secure Israel up to 6 tons of cannabis with a possibility of more, which will benefit the cannabis business in the country. Organigram is considered as one of the leading companies worldwide, being worth around $469 million on the Canadian stock market.
Kanduk Israel signed a comprehensive cooperation agreement with the Canadian company Organigram, which focuses on indoor cannabis growing facilities and is considered one of the leading companies worldwide in this field.
Organigram, which today trades on the Canadian stock exchange worth $469 million, will market to Israel, under this new agreement, up to 6 tons of cannabis from its medical cannabis brand Organicare.

Israel and Canada’s cannabis partnership
Kanduk reported this morning that, in the first phase, 1 ton of cannabis will arrive in the next few weeks, and is expected to be the largest Indore stock in Israel, and possibly the first, depending on the final arrival date.
An additional 2 tons are expected to arrive within a year and a half, with the option to order an additional 3 tons thereafter. The agreement is for 7.5 years, which will seal Israel and Canada’s cannabis partnership. According to Kanduk, Organigram’s growing facility is the “largest and most advanced in the world” and that hundreds of millions of dollars have been invested in it.
Kanduk has not revealed which varieties of Organism’s variety are to arrive in Israel, but it is likely that these cannabis species have about 18% of THC that can enter the T20 / C4 category, which is considered the most popular.
The varieties will be marketed under a local brand of ‘Kanduk’ and not in the original packaging, but the two companies agreed to discuss the possibility of marketing the Canadian company’s products under a new joint brand in Israel.
The significant advantage of ‘Indore’ growth compared to greenhouse growth is the relative cleanliness of pests and the flats resulting from constant and accurate temperature, humidity and lighting conditions – which may exempt the produce from screening for mold spores and fungal toxins.
At present, there are no Indore products in Israel, but there are two local companies in the final stages of production and marketing. Beneath the surface, there is a silent competition for the title of “The First Legal Indoor Products in Israel”.
Canada is expanding into other cannabis markets and is building up international relationships
Canada already markets a wide range of cannabis varieties made by an international Canadian company, “Tilleyri”, but these varieties are produced in greenhouses at the company’s facility in Portugal. “Organigram” will be the third Canadian company to market Canadian-made cannabis in Israel after the companies “Supreme” and “Hexo”.
At the beginning of the year (2020), Organigram signed a distribution agreement with Canada’s largest pharmacy chain, Shoppers, and is considered one of the top 10 cannabis companies in the country.
Organigram CEO Greg Engel said: “Success in international cannabis markets requires careful assessment of opportunities and identifying strong partners at the highest level. For this reason, we are proud to work with Kanduk, a company we believe is focused on high quality manufacturing and a commitment to helping patients.”
Kanduk Chairman Ehud Barak said: “In our mission to fulfill patients’ needs and improve their quality of life, we are happy and proud to work with Organigram to improve the health of patients in Israel as well as other countries that recognize the benefits of this treatment for people who need it.”
