Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ:TLRY), a global pioneer in cannabis research, cultivation, production and distribution, today announced it has imported medical cannabis oral solutions in bulk into the United Kingdom from its Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP)-certified facility in Canada.

In September 2018, Tilray announced the successful import of Tilray 2:100 medical cannabis oil for a pediatric patient in need in the United Kingdom. Tilray’s 2:100 cannabis oil was supplied via a government-approved special access program following the U.K. Home Secretary’s historic announcement that declared prescriptions of cannabis-derived medicines legal for patients with an exceptional clinical need.

“As demand ramps up in the U.K., Tilray is well positioned to be a leading supplier of medical cannabis products,” says Sascha Mielcarek, Managing Director of Tilray Europe. “Regulations are progressing as more and more countries across Europe are recognizing the benefits of medical cannabis and its potential to improve patients’ quality of life. We’re pleased to reaffirm our commitment to delivering medical cannabis to patients in the U.K. and look forward to offering a variety of GMP-certified, pharmaceutical-grade products in the coming months.”

Tilray has six medical cannabis products approved for medical use in the U.K. that can be made available to patients with medical cannabis prescriptions obtained through private practice or the National Health Service. Tilray anticipates supplying a variety of cannabidiol (CBD)-dominant, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)-dominant and balanced oral solutions for patients looking to use medicines derived from cannabis.

“This bulk import of Tilray medical cannabis oral solutions provides patients in need access to a sustained supply of GMP-certified, high quality medical cannabis,” says Catherine Jacobson, Tilray’s Vice President of Medical and Regulatory Affairs. “This is an important step in improving access in the U.K. Tilray will continue to advocate for reasonable patient access to medical cannabis in the U.K. and countries around the world.”
