Highest medical quality and reliable constant supply is what German patients deserve and what Deutsche Medizinalcannabis, stand for.

Clinical efficacy for medical cannabis has been shown for pain control, multiple sclerosis, and nausea. Furthermore, pre-clinical trials hint at a much greater potential for medical cannabis in the treatment of some forms of cancer, sleep disorders, epilepsy, some psychiatric disorders, inflammatory pain in the context of ulcerative colitis, as well as autoimmune disorders such as Crohns disease, among others.
