Jacana is a new UK-based startup that produces certified medical cannabis to provide natural relief for chronic pain and suffering – a problem that affects half of all UK adults. With an ageing population, the demand for alternative pain relief options is increasing, and the medical cannabis market is expected to be worth $100 million by 2025

The startup has completed the first-ever international export of Jamaican medical cannabis flower, securing multiple international licenses and permits, and has furthermore raised €22 million to cultivate, develop and distribute certified medical cannabis solutions. This comes on the heels of the UK’s legalisation of medical cannabis in November 2018.

February 7th and 8th Hanway Associates was proud to host Cannabis Europa in France for the first time.

Just after wrapping up the first Cannabis Europa in London last May, a surprising move towards medical cannabis reform drew our eye to France. While the whole continent is rippling with change, we learnt from our first event in London that bringing the right people together at the right time can have positive effects that long outlast a single conference’s activities. With the French National Medicines Agency (ANSM) recommending the implementation of a medical cannabis regime and the European Parliament gearing up for a vote on cannabis, this conference was perfectly timed to kickstart meaningful reform in France.
