(“Tilray” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: TLRY), a leading company in the manufacture, research and distribution of medical cannabis, announced that it has entered into a co-promotion agreement with Hormosan for its full-spectrum cannabis extracts in Germany effective 1 January 2021.

According to the legal regulation, the use of cannabis full-spectrum extracts is not restricted to a specific indication, but the treating doctor decides at their own discretion whether a treatment is suitable. The Tilray extracts are used for chronic pain, spasticity, sleep disorders and a variety of other indications.
"With Hormosan we have gained a partner that has excellent expertise and contacts in the field of pain therapy and neurology and will thus significantly increase the visibility of Tilray's full-spectrum cannabis extracts in the future," explains Sascha Mielcarek, Managing Director Europe at Tilray. “This will give physicians and patients even better access to our medical cannabis extracts while supporting our goal of contributing to improved care for patients with medical cannabis."
