The Government of Jujuy delivered the first 50 bottles of pharmaceutical-grade medical cannabis oil to patients included in the special therapeutic program. Moreover, the government confirmed that in November the medical cannabis oil will be available in 160 pharmacies in Jujuy for sale under medical prescription.
“We are proud to be marking this milestone, the most important of the project,” assured the radical governor Gerardo Morales.
The governor highlighted that this is the first cannabis-derived product entirely manufactured in the country from the active pharmaceutical ingredient, elaborated by the company Cannava S.E. at Finca El Pongo, in Perico.

During a ceremony at the Arturo Zabala hospital in that town, Morales also highlighted that “it is a project that started a little more than three years ago” and that “its heart has to do with health but also with scientific and technological development because there is no other province in the country that has the level of scientific and technological progress and development that Jujuy has.”
The cannabis oil manufactured by Cannava – “CBD 10”- was delivered “free of charge and for life” to beneficiaries in the province, children and adults, who were accompanied by their relatives.
The product will be available from November in 160 pharmacies in the province, and it will be available through a prescription.
“We know that there is the political decision of the national government to promote this project and this challenge; we have fulfilled the different stages with the respective authorizations and regulations and there is no leap into the void or improvisation here, but a scientific and technological work that is at the best levels of drug production in the world,” he said.
Along these lines, Morales specified that they are complying “with the GMP standard, which are the good manufacturing practices standards required by the European Union so that we can enter Europe when we have greater production”.
The intention, he said, is not only to supply pharmacies and hospitals in Jujuy and the country. “We are going to enter Brazil, Europe and the countries that demand a high-quality product”, he highlighted, and estimated that “in March or April it could be sold all over the country and go out to the world.”
