Therismos is the group's medical division, which imports and distributes cannabis-based products for medical use (CBPM) across Europe. We strive to be the leading European full-service provider of medicinal cannabis through our innovative product solutions, valuable partnerships with strategic allies, and collaboration with world-class scientists and medical practitioners.
We put patients at the heart of everything we do and aspire to improve their quality of life by offering access to the largest range and delivery routes of safe, reliable and high-quality CBPM, while ensuring medical practitioners have everything they need to fully support cannabis patients wherever they may be.
The Cannaray Group was founded to make the health and wellbeing properties of cannabinoids accessible to millions more people across Europe.
We have robust ESG processes in place to ensure we operate thoughtfully, responsibly and sustainably across each of our companies, with a commitment to the highest governance standards.
Supporting CBPM Access for All
Until CBPM becomes fully reimbursed by governments, we recognise that many prospective patients are unable to access private funded prescriptions.
We are proud to support a programme of prescription cost assistance for patients in financial need.
Safe and Efficient Drug Supply
Therismos' supply chain expertise in controlled, rare and orphan drugs helps large biopharma companies to deliver to patients quickly and safely.
Highest Quality Standards
We have an in-house Quality Management team across our Medical Cannabis and CBD divisions to ensure our products meet consistently high standards. Our CBPM medicines are manufactured to EU Good Manufacturing Practice (EU-GMP) standards.
Cannaray Wellness CBD is independently lab tested for purity, with full tranparency of our lab reports and certificates of analysis published on the website.
All Cannaray CBD ingestible products are fully compliant with the FSA Novel Food process and are validated on the FSA public list.
Every bottle and jar that holds Cannaray CBD's oils, capsules and topicals is made from recyclable glass. We use minimal plastic for our pumps and lids – and what we do use is 100% recyclable. Additionally, all Cannaray CBD packaging and ecommerce boxes are fully recyclable.

Cannaray Limited, the European Medical Cannabis and Retail CBD company, today Monday 4th April 2022, announced the completion of a £10m funding round. Participants in the round include Channel 4 Ventures, the UK’s largest media-for-equity fund, Three Bridges Private Capital, Alpha Blue Ocean and a mix of new and follow-on private investors.
Cannaray will use the majority of funds to build its Pan-European medical cannabis business. The activation for 2022 will focus on Germany and the UK, led by its teams in Berlin and London.
The media-for-equity investment by Channel 4 Ventures also gives Cannaray CBD, the company’s flagship wellness CBD brand, access to a high-reach upmarket TV audience in the UK. In Summer 2021, Cannaray launched the UK’s first major brand campaign for CBD on TV. The campaign features Cannaray’s brand ambassador and TV presenter Claudia Winkleman as she leads the charge to recruit new customers to the brand. In addition to a high-performing DTC site, cannaraycbd.com, the brand is also stocked on Amazon and in over 1500 retail outlets across the UK including Tesco, Superdrug, ASDA, Waitrose and Harrods.
Scott Maguire, Cannaray Limited CEO, said: “I am delighted with the high participation of both existing and new investors within this funding round and thank them for putting their money and faith in us. The Channel 4 Ventures backing is one of the first of its kind in the European cannabis sector, and a sign of the credibility and growth opportunity available within the market. Having created one of the leading CBD brands in the UK, we are now focused on building Europe’s leading medical cannabis company and improving the lives of millions of people.”
Vinay Solanki, Head of Channel 4 Ventures, said: “We’ve been impressed with the leadership team at Cannaray and their progress in building a portfolio spanning European Medical Cannabis and the Cannaray CBD wellness brand. This investment fits well with our strategy to back bold categories as part nof our Future4 strategy to diversify new revenue streams. We’re looking forward to supporting Cannaray’s CBD wellness brand campaign across our marketing platform and hope it drives the significant brand awareness only possible through the scale and reach of TV advertising.
