Well-known Belgian travel program ‘Reizen Waes’ visiting Bedrocan
Welcome to our website. You probably found us as a result of the Travel program Reizen Waes.

In this broadcast, you get a first look at our company while our CEO Tjalling Erkelens takes Tom Waes and his film crew for a tour.
Tom makes it seem as it is very exciting to visit Bedrocan. Of course, you can’t just walk into our facilities, that’s not allowed at other production companies either, but we don’t want to call ourselves a secret. Commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Health, we have been the only producer of medicinal cannabis in the Netherlands for almost 20 years. Our medicinal cannabis is prescribed to thousands of patients at home and abroad by doctors and is only available at pharmacies.
Medicinal cannabis is subject to very strict guidelines, just like other pharmaceutical companies are. Tom notes that Tjalling is very strict about the hygiene guidelines in order to prevent possible contamination of the plants. This is not without reason. Bedrocan is GMP certified by the Health and Youth Care Inspectorate (IGJ). GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practice. This is a quality assurance system for the pharmaceutical industry that guarantees the quality of medicine or raw material. Medicines and active substances for use in medicines may only be produced by companies that have such a GMP certificate. Bedrocan was the first cannabis company in the world to receive such a certificate, and we are still proud of it. Since then, we are actually no longer a cannabis grower but a pharmaceutical raw material producer.
Tjalling is not alone in producing and monitoring our quality. Together with a high-quality team of almost 100 professionals and the necessary quality systems, we turn a vegetable product into a reliable medicinal product.
