Tel Aviv, April 6, 2016… iCAN- Israel-Cannabis.com’s co-founder, CEO and Australian ex-pat Saul Kaye presented the company in front of Premier Mike Baird and the Australian mission currently in Israel.  Mr. Kaye highlighted iCAN’s involvement in medical cannabis clinical trials and plant based research via iCAN’s partnership with Breath of Life (BOL) Pharma, which recently partnered to form the first private Cannabis R&D center in Israel. 

“As a company with two Australian ex-pat founders, I was especially honored to have the opportunity to present our initiatives in front of Premier Mike Baird and the Australian mission.  The mission visit comes fresh off our CannaTech global innovation summit as we are looking to collaborate on research and development initiatives to advance medical cannabis and further Australia’s entrance into a responsible medical cannabis program” said Mr. Kaye.

The Australian mission has come to Israel to explore opportunities for collaboration for New South Whales in innovation, science and technology and learn from Israel’s experience in entrepreneurship and start-ups.

Mr. Kaye, along with fellow co-founder, medical cannabis patient, and Aussie ex-pat Jason Ryker, will also be attending a special reception for Premier Mike Baird on Wednesday night. 

The iCAN Israel-Cannabis team also had the opportunity to visit with Lucy Haslem and learn about her organization United in Compassion.  Mrs. Haslem’s work, in honor of her late son Dan, is to provide compassionate access for the dignified relief of suffering to the people of Australia.  Mrs. Haslem said the trip was a unique opportunity to visit a country considered one of the pioneers of the supply of medicinal cannabis.
