    Rabat - The cannabis training program “Kif Takwine” for Moroccan health workers has reached its third phase.

    The latest phase of the program was launched on Sunday at the headquarters of Pharma Academy in Bouskoura. The program aims to build human capacity in the field of using cannabis for medical and therapeutic purposes.

    In addition, the training program aims to support medical professionals in Morocco to use cannabis in providing medical prescription issued by doctors or pharmacists, and learn how to monitor patients.

    In a statement to Morocco’s Press Agency (MAP), President of the Moroccan Cannabis Use Advisory Association (AMCUC) Redouane Rabii, said: “In three months, Morocco will welcome its first stock of therapeutic cannabis, and for that end, we need on-ground preparations including the training of health professionals (doctors, nurses, and pharmacists).”

    Health professionals should become aware of the constituents of the plant, the right doses, and the side effects associated with the use of medical cannabis, Rabii added.

    Over the training period, participants will benefit from courses delivered by experts from the United States and Israel on the best practices related to building a strong industry for medical cannabis.

    The Moroccan Cannabis Use Advisory Association (AMCUC), the country’s recently established regulating body for cannabis use, has already signed several partnerships with national and international universities, laboratories, medical industry players, research centers, and international organizations.

    Through these collaborations, the association is working to establish a comprehensive strategy to stimulate the creation of a strong industry for medical cannabis.

    Morocco first passed a piece of legislation paving the way for the creation of a cannabis industry for industrial and medical purposes in 2021. However, converging reports indicate that Morocco’s cannabis industry has a long way before it could become competitive in the international market, as legal hurdles present a serious challenge.
