Portugal exported 5,438 kilograms (roughly 12,000 pounds) of medical cannabis in the first half of this year, according to the latest figures published by the country’s health authority, Infarmed.
That puts the Portuguese medical cannabis industry on pace to surpass last year’s record export figure of 9,271 kilograms.
However, export growth is slowing.
Portugal exported 4,850 kilograms of medical cannabis in 2020 and 5,694 in 2021, the figures shared by Infarmed show.
So far this year, the top destination for the Portuguese medical cannabis exports was Germany, which received 1,678 kilograms.
Poland was a close second, with 1,589 kilograms, while Australia received 955 kilograms.
