BENSHEIM, Germany, Feb. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avextra AG (“Avextra” or the “Company”), a leading vertically-integrated manufacturer of Cannabis-based medicines located in Germany, is pleased to announce the successful export of its standardised cannabis extracts to the United Kingdom (“UK”). The UK is the world’s largest exporter of Cannabis-based medicines and therefore one of the strictest jurisdictions in the world for their imports.

This milestone marks a significant step forward for the Company as it validates the regulatory pathway for the UK market and provides patients access to Avextra’s EU-GMP certified Cannabis-based medicines.

The Company’s standardised cannabis extracts, which are manufactured using the highest quality starting material and the latest extraction techniques, have been met with positive feedback from patients and healthcare professionals alike. Avextra’s commitment to producing safe and effective products has been recognised by regulatory bodies, allowing the company to enter new markets and reach more patients in need.

Avextra has an ownership stake in Integro Medical Clinics, a medical cannabis clinic located in London, UK. This clinic provides Avextra the opportunity to better understand unmet patient need and gather valuable insights to develop safe and effective Cannabis-based medicines of the highest quality to address it. This unique combination of distribution and market intelligence has put Avextra in a strong position to continue to grow and succeed in the UK and other European medical cannabis markets.

"We are thrilled to be able to expand our reach and bring our products to patients in the UK," said Bernhard Babel, Co-CEO of Avextra. "Regulations are developing in a positive direction across Europe as governments and the medical community continue to recognise the benefits of medical cannabis and its potential to improve patients' quality of life". In addition, "Having a stake in Integro Medical Clinics allows us to aggregate data and glean valuable insights into the needs of patients in the UK, as we continue to innovate and improve our products to meet those needs.”

This expansion into the UK market is a testament to Avextra's commitment to innovation and quality, and the company looks forward to continued growth and to bringing its products to more patients across Europe in the future.
