It’s possible that Linnea entered the cannabis industry because it saw an opportunity to diversify its product line. However also to boost its knowledge of the natural extracts and active substances market. This may be especially given Switzerland’s supportive regulatory environment for cannabis-related research and development.

This Swiss-based business has been granted permission to manufacture and export active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) that contain significant amounts of THC.
