Elixinol Global (EXL) will sell its branded CBD products in Australia through a new distribution agreement with cannabis wholesaler PharmaCann.

Through the Therapeutic Goods Administration’s Special Access Scheme, PharmaCann will be able to import and sell Elixinol’s products within Australia.  PharmaCann recently obtained the necessary regulatory and governmental approvals to import and wholesale all forms of medical cannabis. 

The deal follows the TGA’s proposed de-scheduling of CBD. Currently, CBD products are classed as a schedule four substance in Australia and, therefore, require a prescription to acquire.

If CBD is brought down to a schedule three classification, consumers will be able to access the products for medicinal use over the counter at pharmacies across Australia.

Currently, PharmaCann supplies 1600 medical practitioners across Australia and New Zealand. Further, PharmaCann has supply agreements with more than 2000 pharmacies, which include the and Chemist Warehouse, TerryWhite Chemart and Priceline Pharmacy.

Elixinol, which already distributes across in the U.S., the U.K. and Europe, hopes the new agreement with PharmaCann will accelerate CBD sales if the TSA does re-classify the treatment.

Group CEO, Oliver Horn commented deal with PharmaCann.

“We regularly receive queries about whether our products are accessible in Australia, so we’re very pleased to now be able to offer a solution. The relationship with PharmaCann gives us the ability to sell Elixinol branded products in our home market in a way which fits within current regulations,” he said.

Meanwhile, Managing Director of PharmaCann Global, Victor Caprio, said PharmaCann was proud to be working with Elixinol Global to continue to deliver high-quality cannabinoid medicines across Australia and New Zealand.

Elixinol Global is up 2.7 per cent on the market in early trade, priced at 19 cents per share at 10:57 am AEST.
