After a long period of being out of stock at hospital pharmacies, there was a delivery of 14 kg of medical cannabis in late October.

Of the 900 delivered bags with 10% THC, there are around 300 remaining at the wholesaler. The next delivery is expected next month.

18% THC cannabis is not currently available.

The shortage is not due to budget restrictions, but supply issues on the producer's side, said Paulette Lenert in a response to a parliamentary question by Pirate MP Sven Clement.

She did not want to make predictions about the purchase volumes for next year. This would depend on the usage levels, she said.
