Medical Cannabis in Portugal


The production of controlled substances for the pharmaceutical industry already has something of a tradition in Portugal. In recent years, licences have been granted to cultivate controlled substances, such as opium poppy and substances intended for the pharmaceutical industry to produce opioid medicines.

In Portugal it is now possible to obtain licences for the cultivation, manufacturing, import, export and wholesale marketing of medical cannabis.

The regulatory and legal stability in the sector in Portugal is attracting the world's biggest players in this industry.
