Israeli medical cannabis company CANTEK has announced it will open the country’s first medical cannabis center in Tel Aviv this coming November, which will house their medical cannabis consultation project, the “Tree of Knowledge,” as well as a cannabis-pharmacy and clubhouse.
Since acquiring the control of both Shlomi Sandak’s “CannabiSandak” and Ilan Gil’s “Green Medical Services,” CANTEK’s “Tree of Knowledge” has become Israel’s largest medical cannabis consultation center.
andak and Gil, two of Israel’s most prominent medical cannabis activists now run the center, guiding patients through the entirety of the lengthy bureaucratic process of getting a medical cannabis license, for the price of NIS 1,200.
The center houses physicians who specialize in psychiatry, orthopedics, gastroenterology and cardiothoracic surgery, to help patients who suffer from a variety of conditions which can be aided by medical cannabis, including PTSD, autism, Crohn’s disease, chronic pain and cancer.
In addition to the Tree of Knowledge, the new center will also feature a cannabis-only pharmacy (with CANTEK products) and a clubhouse, where patients can discuss and compare treatments and receive informational lectures about medicinal cannabis.
The Jerusalem Post met for an interview with representatives from CANTEK on Monday in their Tel Aviv location, which currently serves as a management office, a day before renovations began on the building.
“The room that we’re sitting in right now is going to be the center’s safe. In about three months, this room will be filled with over 200 kilograms of cannabis.” CANTEK’s VP of business development, Oren Dolfin, told the Post.
Dolfin said that while most pharmacies have safes designed to fit up to 15 kg of cannabis, their larger version will be able to keep the supply steady and reliable.
