Eight of the 63 applications to admit products to Denmark’s medical cannabis trial scheme have won approval since the program’s inception in 2018, according to a recent disclosure by Health Minister Magnus Heunicke.Subsequently, however, four of the products were removed from the approved list because they could no longer be provided in the country of origin, Canada.Heunicke provided the new figures in an answer to a parliamentary query from Member of Parliament Jane Heitmann.
