AMRad regulation: Farmako GmbH has approval for medicinal cannabis treated with ionising radiation

Farmako, the Frankfurt-based company for specialised pharmaceutical wholesale, confirms the existence of the necessary marketing authorisations in accordance with the Ordinance on Medicinal Products Treated with Radioactive or Ionising Radiation (AMRadV).

Farmako GmbH is one of the few pharmaceutical wholesalers to hold the approval granted by the Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM) for the medicinal cannabis flowers currently available on the German market that have been treated with ionising radiation. This special approval is mandatory for the marketing of radiation-treated medicinal products.

Farmako continues to prove itself as a reliable pharmaceutical wholesaler, ensuring a sustainable supply of cannabis medicines to patients.

Cannabis flowers as herbal medicinal products are often treated with ionising radiation (e.g. gamma rays) by specialised, licensed irradiation companies in order to free them from potentially harmful germ contamination (sterilisation) and thus counteract possible health risks in the context of treating patients with cannabis flowers. Such radiation sterilization or decontamination is also used in other areas of drug production, e.g. antibiotics or sterile medical devices. According to available studies, radiation sterilization does not cause significant changes in the composition of medical cannabis and is thus a recognized method of decontamination.
