Tikun Olam is the first supplier of medical cannabis in Israel and known worldwide as a pioneer of modern medical cannabis.
Since its establishment in 2006, Tikun Olam has worked with vertical integration – from the plant to the patient. The company cultivates special strains of cannabis and develops medical cannabis products containing fixed and uniform levels of active substances.
For us, Tikun Olam means bringing relief, and our motto is “The patient at the center”. For that purpose we set up the first training clinic of its kind in the world at Tikun Olam House, with a team of qualified and experienced nurses to train and assist patients to achieve the most suitable, effective and safe treatment with unique Tikun Olam products.
We have at our disposal a database built on the experience of treating tens of thousands of patients over the years, containing extensive knowledge about the effects of medical cannabis on various conditions, characterization of strains, dosages, methods of use, and reducing patients’ reliance on conventional medicines.
