Our Mission

Farmako GmbH is a research-based pharmaceutical company. Traditional research on pharmaceutical products has produced countless revolutions in the past century that have improved the lives of billions of people. Since the 1920s, however, research and development of pharmaceutical products based on the cannabis plant has been massively restricted or banned. We have set ourselves on helping to catch up on this research backlog of almost 100 years.

Farmako is ready to drive this transformation worldwide.

Our Goals

Farmako wants to become a vertically integrated leader in every European country that has created a legal basis for pharmaceutical cannabis. Cannabinoid therapies will change the pharmaceutical industry worldwide. We plan to drive this transformation with a high standard of commitment to our coworkers, our products and our speed. We are the first European company in the cannabis industry to focus on innovation through research and development. So that doctors, patients and pharmacists have more choices for the best possible therapy.

Farmako only hires the best to meet this demand. If you think you are one of them click here to apply.

Europe is changing. And we help naturally.

Many European countries are opening their health care systems to cannabinoid therapies. The legal basis is changing rapidly. In a few years, Europe will be home to the biggest number of patients worldwide. We aim to be active in every country that initiates this change.

Research and Development

We are leading the change to natural alternatives

Application areas

Cannabinoid therapies can be used for a number of recognized indications. The research of further fields of application is still in its infancy – we support the change.

Development of alternative medicines

Products from the cannabis plant are a natural remedy. We conduct research on products that can be derived from those natural ingredients.

New processes

We are researching new methods for the safe production and processing of pharmaceutical products based on the cannabis plant.

Medical trials

We conduct active research with patients and doctors to ensure the viability of cannabis-based pharmaceutical solutions. 

Alternative production of active ingredients

In the cannabis plant there are a number of cannabinoids and terpenes that have a pharmaceutical effect. We are researching ways to produce these drugs in alternative ways.
