Aurora Cannabis Sees Product Approved For Irish Market

Aurora Cannabis (TSX: ACB) (NYSE: ACB) announced this morning that the firm has expanded its international market exposure to that of Ireland. The firm recently saw one of its oil products approved for import to the European country.

Ireland recently implemented a new Medical Cannabis Access Programme (MCAP), which is slated to run for five years following legislation that was signed into law in June 2019 by the Minister of Health. The approval for medical cannabis is currently limited to a narrow set of medical conditions which include spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis, nausea associated with chemotherapy, and severe epilepsy.

Aurora’s High CBD Oil Drops product is the second product to be approved for importation, prescription, and supply under the new legislation, following Tilray’s approval this past summer. Tilray Inc (NASDAQ: TLRY) shipped an undisclosed amount of cannabis oil to Ireland for use in the MCAP program back in early July, following the initial approval of the program by the health minister.

Aurora did not disclose when the first shipment of CBD oil will be made to the European nation, or what quantities are expected to be exported.

Aurora Cannabis closed Friday’s session at $2.50 on the New York Stock Exchange.
