LONDON, Aug. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Materia, a leading processor and distributor of medical cannabis and CBD wellness products across Europe, is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary Materia Deutschland GmbH ("Materia Deutschland"), has entered into an agreement with German medical cannabis manufacturer Eurox Pharma GmbH ("Eurox Pharma"), becoming one of Eurox Pharma's selected distribution partners for its medical cannabis extracts.

By pairing their extracts with our distribution expertise, we're confident this partnership will be a great success for both of us," said Sebastian Blöte, Managing Director, Germany of Materia Deutschland.

Eurox provide the highest quality product whilst maintaining uncompromising safety standards to ensure a stable supply and full control of our entire supply chain - from selecting the plant material to manufacturing and distribution.
