The benefits of having Medropharm GmbH on your side
Medropharm GmbH is a company that specializes in creating premium grade cannabis strains for use in the pharmaceutical, food and cosmetics industries.
Medropharm GmbH states, “We seek specific genetic traits that facilitate cutting edge farming techniques and efficient recovery of high-quality cannabinoids.”
The company uses modern facilities and a variety of different techniques to produce some of the best cannabis strains available for their intended uses. Their commitment to research and the testing of each and every strain is one of the main reasons INDIVA Ltd. has entered into this agreement with Medropharm Gmbh. This agreement helps to enforce INDIVA Ltd.’s position as a premium producer that puts cannabis quality and customer well-being above everything else.
Another great thing about having a relationship with Medropharm GmbH, aside from the cannabis strains they produce, is their emphasis on research and the consistency of product quality.
According to Medropharm GmbH, the company is engaged in “breeding programs to develop a variety of germplasms with special features for cultivation of medical cannabis.” Medropharm GmbH also states, “Our research is conducted largely in vitro, i.e., in test tubes. In vitro research involves studying organisms under artificial experimental conditions. Biological experiments can be monitored better in vitro than in vivo. We seek specific genetic traits that facilitate cutting edge farming techniques and efficient recovery of high-quality cannabinoids.”
Every strain INDIVA Ltd. has acquired licensing for has been thoroughly researched and scientifically tested to ensure it provides the expected results – repeatedly. This means that all aspects of cannabis production, extraction, processing, handling and manufacture of end products can be repeated indefinitely with the same high level of results.
“We place the greatest emphasis on repeatable production processes, and we strive to attain the highest standards of quality at every stage of processing, from cultivation and handling to the manufacture of finished products.” – Medropharm GmbH.
