LISBON, PORTUGALOct. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – European medical cannabis company AceCann announced closing a $15M (USD) round of Seed financing.

Construction started in September.

“We aim to create the gold standard in medical cannabis – from cultivation to commercialization, with IP ownership at every step in the value chain,” says AceCann CEO Pedro Gomes. “With the support of our investors, we can accelerate our mission to develop consistent, high-quality products that give patients access to life-changing innovation.”
