THE COMEBACK

Cannabis as a medicine

Dascoli Pharma, builiding longterm Relationships. Stronger together.

Interest in medical cannabis has grown strongly due to the potentially broad range of uses. For this reason, the Swiss parliament has lifted the ban on cannabis for medicinal purposes in the Narcotics Act as of August 2022. 

 

In the absence of guidance on products, patients often seek out information on their own to investigate which products and dosing may help with their particular symptoms. This process is not optimal, and usually involves patients experimenting before finding a regimen that works for them.

 

By building a network of sustainable partnerships, we foster the treatments of medical cannabis.

WHAT WE STAND FOR

Committed to the therapeutic potential of medical cannabis

Dascoli Pharma AG - Patients first!

"Our vision is to do everything that ensures patients have safe access to medical cannabis and can rely on expert medical care in this field.
We put our heart and soul into constantly pioneering new paths."
