Together Pharma Exporting Cannabis from Uganda

Via the German company Cantourage and its British subsidiary, the Israeli company Together Pharma, a producer of medical cannabis in Uganda, exported an undisclosed quantity of medical cannabis for the Cantourage Clinic network of clinics.

Cantourage UK will thus offer two medical cannabis flowers with a high THC content and non-irradiated: Glueberry OG® (Gorilla Glue x OG Kush x Blueberry, 17% THC) and Power Plant (19% THC).

Together Pharma Only Exporter in Uganda

To our knowledge, Together Pharma is today the only company growing medical cannabis in Uganda despite many requests. Its Ugandan farm spans around 30,000 m² of greenhouses and has a reported total production capacity of over 15 tonnes per year.

Together Pharma currently mainly supplies Israel with medical cannabis and carried out its first export to Germany at the beginning of the year, already with Cantourage, for an undisclosed quantity.

Cantourage UK Together With Together Pharma

In a statement on the Uganda deal, Niall Ivers, COO of Cantourage UK, said: “We are delighted to extend our successful partnership with Together Pharma to the UK. Together Pharma is a leader in the Israeli domestic market, with extensive knowledge and international experience in delivering high-quality, high-value medicines to patients. We are confident that introducing these first two varieties will help build a sustainable ecosystem for UK patients.”

Expanding Global Reach for Together Pharma and Uganda

Nir Sosinsky, Managing Director of Together Pharma, added: “The extension of our partnership with Cantourage UK is extremely exciting for Together Pharma and is another step in expanding our global reach. It strengthens our position in the UK and Europe while supporting our commitment to the cannabis industry in Uganda, which holds great potential for the country. The UK is an extremely important market for us. We are pleased that our medical-grade cannabis flowers are made available by Cantourage UK and Cantourage Clinic, enabling a reliable supply to benefit patients across the country.”
