An inter-ministerial committee in Israel has recommended being in favour of exporting medical cannabis as any medical product that patients receive according to labels and dosages and buy it in pharmacies under strict standards.

Deputy Minister of Health MK Yaakov Litzman said: “I supported the export of medical cannabis because of the economic contribution to the health system and the Israeli economy and after we reached an agreement with the Ministry of Finance to direct some of the resulting resources to the health system. This is a dramatic move that was approved only after it passed all the meticulous procedures by professionals in Israel, in full cooperation with the relevant government ministries.”

Director General of the Ministry of Health Moshe Bar Siman Tov added: “The State of Israel is a world leader in medical cannabis. In recent years, we have created a process of high standardization of cannabis products for medical use, and a complete theory of compatibility between active ingredients and medical labels. We did this for Israeli patients, who are now starting to receive products safely and of the highest quality.

As a result of our move, Israel, both in the government, in the healthcare system and in the industry, have created knowledge and expertise that exists nowhere else in the world, which can be used to export high-quality products to the world”.

This follows the completion of the medicalization process promoted by the Ministry of Health.
