Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 26 settembre 2018

Tilray, Inc. (NASDAQ: TLRY), a global pioneer in cannabis production and distribution, today announced that it has successfully exported medical cannabis from Canada to Australia to distribute to critically ill children.Tilray will distribute its CBD 100 product to three hospitals in the state of Victoria via its wholly-owned subsidiary Tilray Australia New Zealand Pty Ltd. The products are being supplied to Royal Children’s Hospital, Monash Children’s Hospital and Austin Health with support from the Government of Victoria’s Department of Health and Human Services, Victoria (DHHS), where they will be distributed to children suffering from intractable epilepsy.Tilray first announced that the company successfully exported medical cannabis products to Victoria in March 2017. The products were distributed to 29 critically ill children through a compassionate access scheme designed to fast-track medical cannabis access for pediatric patients in need. According to the government, these 29 patients became the first in Victoria to legally access medical cannabis.Earlier this year, the Victorian government released an update on the status of the compassionate access scheme. According to the update, in less than one year the scheme “has already helped children see a reduction in seizures and has significantly improved their quality of life.” The additional number of patients gaining access over the next three years was labelled a “significant expansion” by the Victorian government.Tilray CBD 100 is an oral solution of concentrated cannabinoid extract. Tilray CBD 100 has a target concentration of 100mg/ml CBD in a 25ml vial. The Tilray CBD 100 products, which will be supplied to Australian patients via compassionate access, were successfully exported from Nanaimo to Victoria, Australia, this month.
