On Thursday, Tilray Inc (NASDAQ: TLRY) announced its GMP-certified medical cannabis oral solution has reached Ireland. In this manner, Ireland became the 13th country where Tilray’s products are imported, as the company works on its global expansion in Europe.

At the end of June, the Department of Health in Ireland approved the Medical Cannabis Access Programme that enables patients in need of medical cannabis to obtain it. Through this program, Tilray oral solutions should reach qualified patients in Ireland during the second half of the year.
