[PRESS RELEASE] Standardized medical cannabis for greater patient safety

Düsseldorf, September 2023 – expopharm, Europe’s leading trade fair for the pharmaceutical market, is once again the central meeting place for industry insiders in Düsseldorf this year. In addition to a comprehensive range of pharmaceutical products and services, this year HAPA pharm presented its innovative dosage forms for medicinal cannabis developed with pharmacists, including inhalation cones filled in the pharmacy based on cannabis granules (so-called prerolled joints), compressed cannabis inhalation products (so-called pressed pellets) based on cannabis granules and cannabis tea in pre-portioned form. All of these innovations have been developed from practical experience and designed specifically for the professional audience.

These new products reflect HAPA pharm’s commitment to quality and patient safety and mark an important step in the development of patient-friendly cannabis products.

The innovations presented

  • enable standardized delivery to patients through precise dosing
  • enable standardized ingestion
  • are based on already recognized prescription regulations (e.g. inhalation of flowers, tea preparations)
  • enable simplified and more effective dispensing by pharmacies thanks to standardized processes and equipment
  • make it easy for caregivers and nursing staff to administer cannabis medicines to their patients.


During an exciting interview with the expopharm TV team, Alexander Rieg, Chief Operating Officer of HAPA pharm, discussed the latest development of standardized pharmacy dosage forms for medical cannabis.

It’s an exciting moment for us and we are proud to be at the forefront of innovation for medicinal cannabis as a result. Our goal has always been to bring more standardization through innovation to the confusing world of medical cannabis flowers. We place great emphasis on covering the many different aspects of the cannabis value chain, including handling in pharmacies,” says Rieg.

HAPA used the event itself to present the new dosage forms. Michael Sprenger from the HAPA pharm team led through the program. “Sharing our progress in product development is an absolute highlight for us. Now we can make this result accessible to a wider audience. The response was consistently positive and both doctors and pharmacists showed great interest, especially because the innovations are a further step towards standardized intake and significantly simplify handling.
