German medical marijuana imports jumped more than 60% in the first half of 2020 compared to 2019 | Instant News

German importing 4,126 kilograms (9,096 pounds) of medical marijuana interest for pharmaceutical expenses during the first half of 2020, an increase of more than 60% over the same period last year, new government data showed.

A small portion of imported flowers can be re-exported to other European countries, including Czech Republic, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta and Poland.

According to data from the German Federal Institute for Medicines and Medical Devices (BfArM), imports of the country’s medical cannabis during the first half of the year rose 63% over the same period in 2019.

However, the time period used for comparison can make a big difference when it comes to interpreting new data.

If the first six months of 2020 are compared with the last six months of 2019, imports will remain the same.

That’s because most imports last year were completed in the second half of this year, with total 2019 imports almost 6,750 kilograms. Some of the flowers are re-exported.

If German flower imports during the second half of 2020 are the same as flower imports in the first six months, the country will eventually import 8,252 kilograms – a decent increase, but smaller, year on year compared to the annual increase recorded in 2019.

The number of imports in Germany has fluctuated significantly throughout the year, making it difficult to predict and does not always represent how domestic sales develop. That is more accurately shown through insurance replacement data.

Just, Israel surpasses Germany is the largest and largest THC medical flower importer in the world, with around 6 metric tons imported during the first half of this year.

That means during the first half of 2020, Israel imported almost 50% more interest than Germany.

There is no other country approaching to Israel or Germany in the case of high THC interest imports.
