Bedrocan produces pharmaceutical-grade, standardised cannabis raw material for research purposes. Moreover, for each of our standardised cannabis varieties, we offer a corresponding placebo cannabis variety.


Researchers wishing to use Bedrocan’s cannabis or cannabis extracts for research purposes must contact the Dutch Office of Medicinal Cannabis (OMC) at all times. Their contact details can be found on the OMC website. For import the following documents must be submitted to the OMC:

  • two original import licences
  • an accompanying letter describing the quantity of materials required and the purpose for which it will be used.

Once the documents have been received, the OMC will draw up a contract in duplicate, and an invoice for delivering the cannabis. The OMC will then apply to the Dutch Healthcare Inspectorate (Inspectie voor de Gezondheidszorg) for an export licence. Once the signed contract has been returned, the cannabis or cannabis extracts can be delivered by the OMC.

Costs include the application fee for the export licence and contract and transport costs.

The OMC delivers Bedrocan’s products in bulk packages containing 250 grams of plant material. However, the packaging form can be adjusted according to specific needs.

Bedrocan cannabis is produced in batches of 20 kg. Transport costs will be relatively lower when a larger quantity is ordered at once. However, this option depends on the current availability of cannabis and your urgency to obtain the materials.

Delivery time

All of the cannabis varieties are produced on a regular basis by Bedrocan in batches of 20 kg. However, before it is possible to estimate the time of delivery, the ordered cannabis needs to be factored into the production schedule. Only then is it possible for us to estimate an expected date of delivery.


The OMC is the institution which will provide you with the price for the active cannabis. Bedrocan delivers its cannabis to the OMC, who then determines pricing, packaging and export. Consequently, we invite you to contact the OMC directly.


The OMC has ample experience with sending cannabis products around the world. A trusted courier will be used for handling the delivery.

Bulk ordering

Any potential discount regarding our cannabis products will depend on the final order and will ultimately be decided by the OMC.


In collaboration with our partner Proxy Laboratories, we produce placebo cannabis by selectively removing the biologically active cannabinoids (like THC and CBD) from cannabis while maintaining the original terpene content. As a consequence, the taste and smell of the placebo cannabis corresponds to that of the ‘active’ cannabis.

We produce our placebo cannabis under good manufacturing practices (GMP), without the use of any toxic chemicals or solvents. The placebo material is available for all standardised cannabis products currently produced by Bedrocan. These varieties are: Bedrocan, Bedrobinol, Bedica, Bediol, and Bedrolite. Full HPLC (high-pressure liquid chromatography) and GC (gas chromatography) profiles are available on request, showing detailed information about cannabinoid and terpene content of all varieties.

The placebo cannabis material contains only trace amounts of THC; therefore, it does not need to be ordered through the OMC. Should you want to place an order, please contact us at

Please note: Because the placebo cannabis is aimed at being used in clinical research and, as such, we only sell it to customers who plan to use it in their investigations. Therefore, we may ask you about your affiliation(s) with a research/health institution(s) and whether the product will be used in research.


Typically, placebo cannabis is delivered in packages containing 25 grams of material. Consequently, orders can be placed for any type of packaging, however if it is not for increments of 25 grams, then additional handling costs may be involved.

Delivery time

If placebo cannabis is ordered, additional time is required to allow for its production.


In case of the placebo, prices are on request. To request for a price quote please contact us at


A trusted courier will be used for handling the delivery.

Bulk ordering

Due to investment in equipment and a GMP production environment, we are unable to provide the benefits of bulk ordering of placebo.
