The price for a medical cannabis strain drops to €10 a gram in Malta
This just in…a medical cannabis distributor has reduced the cost of a Weeco’s White Widow hybrid, a specific strain of medical cannabis. The strain has been reduced to €10/gram ‘in a move which makes it the lowest-priced medical cannabis in the local market’, according to Pharma.mt.
The White Widow hybrid strain is made up of 18% THC and <1% CBD. It is one of the most famous strains in the world, originating from the Netherlands in the 1990s. It is very beneficial in the medical world since it is a balanced hybrid. However, it is also popular with recreational users.
Pharma.mt claims that ‘The White Widow strain can provide effective pain management when it comes to back pain, sciatica, muscle pain, muscle spasms, neck pain, as well as neuropathic pain such as in the cases of fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, and peripheral neuropathy. In opposition to rising prices in every sector, Pharma.MT has been able to secure better pricing from their supplier.’
Malta’s medical cannabis sector has encountered several mishaps in the last few years with consistent supply shortages. In recent news, March 2022 also saw an increase in Bedrocan, a commonly prescribed medication, being sold for €80 per prescription, up from its previous €65, after months of it being out of stock. Pharma.mt had claimed that the price had risen to around €16/gram after a promotion came to an end, pointing out that prices in other countries are competitive with Germany selling for around €25/gram, Italy between €20 and €8/gram and Poland between €14 and €17/gram.
After all this commotion, this news will be music to patients’ ears with a popular strain being sold at €10/gram on the island.
