This is per a recommendation from an inter-ministerial team that was established specifically to determine if cannabis export would be a practical option for industry in Israel. The team was made up of directors from the Ministries of Health and Finance and representatives of the Ministries of Agriculture and Rural Development, Internal Security, Justice, and Economy and Industry.
“With the approval of the export of medical cannabis, a new branch will be opened for the farmers of Israel, which will strengthen the agriculture of Israel. It is no secret, that Israel is a medical cannabis power thanks to Israeli research and the conditions for growth in the field that precede world countries in 5-7 years,” said Minister of Agriculture Uri Ariel.

Israel is currently leading the world in cannabis research with some of the most advanced scientific techniques and innovative studies available. This new law will allow Israel to help people from all over the world suffering from a myriad of conditions such as cancer, Parkinson’s, gastrointestinal disorders and more.
