Spain was one of the first countries in Europe to decriminalise the personal use and cultivation of Cannabis. Legislation also allows for the cultivation and personal use of cannabis for recreational and medical reasons. However, in much of the country, patients do not benefit from medical cannabis infrastructure.
There are a number of facilities in Spain dedicated to the production of medical cannabis, however, all of this product is destined for export. Spain’s Agency for Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS) recently granted another export license to Spain-based company, Medalchemy. The company is owned by UK-based, European medical cannabis company, Emmac Life Sciences Ltd.
