Destruction

It applies to all companies which undertake activities with medicinal cannabis that the destruction of regulated cannabis plant components may only take place upon prior approval from the Danish Medicines Agency and under the agency's control (section 13 of the executive order on euphoriant substances). This means that for every quantity of cannabis the company wishes to destruct, the company must seek an approval for destruction from the Danish Medicines Agency.

Detailed information on the requirements for destruction, including destruction method, is provided in the below Danish guideline.
