Why Israel?

Israel is a world leader in the medical cannabis arena. The combination between Israel’s renowned agrotechnology sector and the thriving life science industry, powered by the spirit of the start up nation and accommodating climate, has placed Israel in a unique position. This is backed by more than 50 years of ongoing research and clinical trials, dating back to the 1960s when Prof. Mechoulam first isolated the THC and carried out groundbreaking work on the endocannabinoid system.

The Israeli medicalization process, based on the comprehensive clinical guide, also known as the “Green Book” is a first of its kind. The strictly controlled agricultural and manufacturing processes, together with the medical guideline, promise the patients high quality pharma- grade products suited to their needs. This has led to a tremendous growth in the number of patients and an establishment of a thriving industry.

The first official Israeli delegation is present in the cannabis sector, under the governmental collaboration of The Israel Export Institute, Ministry of Economy and Industry, Economic Mission to the West Coast, and Invest in Israel. The organizations work toward the common goal of promoting Israeli industry through supporting trade and exports, fostering strategic cooperation, and attracting foreign investments. The result is a unique and valuable platform to support innovation and global business connections. We look forward to seeing you at MJBizCon 2019

  • Alexandra, we are on the other side of the coin, and maybe some day be in competition, but we both want the same thing. and that is bettering the lives of all. We, the Caribou-Chilcotin Hemp Alliance, are planning to introduce a CBD hemp processing facility in Williams Lake, BC, Canada to offer a new industry to the interior of British Columbia and we are desperately in the need of help. Thousands are depending on us to provide jobs lost because because of the wildfires that devastated the forest industry. We suggested growing CBD hemp as an agricultural crop and were instantly overwhelmed with interest and commitment but we are being stymied at every turn. Financially because the financial institutions are more than hesitant in financing what they consider an unproven industry, plus the lack of government involvement. We have the land, very interested unemployed that are are than willing to farm their land. All that we are asking is suggestions on how we can get around this log-jam of political and financial disinterest. Could you advise us as to where we can get the advice that we desperately are in need? Sincerely,Donald E (Gene) Thorsteinson, co-founder of Caribou-Chilcotin Hemp Alliance. Tel 236-422-3352
