DEA has 5 Importers and 3 Manufacturers of Cannabis in the US

According to information just released under FOIA there are only 5 importers and 3 “manufacturers” of Cannabis in the US.  Under the Freedom Of Information Act we just obtained a listing of the current importers and manufacturers of Cannabis that are licensed with the DEA.

The importers are Minnesota Depart of Ag, North Carolina Depart of Ag, PA Department of Ag, Washing State Department of Ag and Palomo Farms of North Carolina.  These people are most likely importing seed for use in the test plantings of Cannabis for Hemp Stalk production.

The three Manufacturers are Natl Ctr Natural Products Research, Catalent Pharma Solutions and Synthcon LLC.

Catalent puts it’s self as a “provider of drug delivery technology and development solutions for drugs, biologics and consumer health products.”  From their website information it appears they are actively looking at delivery methods for cannabinoids.

Synthcon appears to be a company that “develops and manufactures innovative medical devices“.  There isn’t much more information available about the company.

Natl Ctr Natural Products Research, is the University of Mississippi Farm.
