The Enabler of
the Cannabis-Industry

Liberalizing the Cannabis-Industry

With Jakob as a legal expert and Benedikt as an industrial engineer, our founders complement each other with their different professional background. This is our key to success. As founders, the brothers combine multi-faceted expertise and a strong entrepreneurial spirit with a common set of values. As a result, they are able to regard all aspects of the cannabis market and to act responsibly.

Today, Cansativa is an established and leading player in the medical cannabis industry – the value chain ranges from importing the product and warehousing it to its distribution to pharmacies, including transport handling, all the way to providing education and instruction. This does not mean the Sons brothers intend to stop and lean back. Together, they want to become ENABLERS of a potent young cannabis industry. They want to blaze the trail for young companies and make Germany the forerunner of a safe European cannabis ecosystem.
