2002 Israel: Tzahi Cohen, a pioneer ahead of his time, decides to start growing cannabis, with the aim of offering its therapeutic properties free of charge, to specific groups of patients: cancer patients, people addicted to opiate drugs and war veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
A team of volunteers, including his mother, established a therapeutic support community which grew to become a great idea that would mark a new era in the medicinal cannabis industry.
Three years later, in 2005, Tikun Olam [tee KOON oh LAHM], whose Hebrew name means "Repair the World", was born as a charitable organization with the mission to "Repair the World" with innovative medicinal cannabis products. The Israel Ministry of Health granted the world’s first governmental license to Tikun Olam to produce medical cannabis products.

TIKUN's presence in Europe begins in Greece, taking advantage of the country's potential to develop into an international center for the production of medicinal cannabis, with most of the production targeting export to European countries.
With a total investment of €40m, in a 56,000m2 area in Corinth, TIKUN Europe has created the largest, in this sector, production unit in Europe, with a vertically integrated production process and an R&D department, accommodated in state-of-the-art facilities with cutting-edge equipment.

The company utilizes TIKUN’s know-how, while having direct access to its large patient database. The effectiveness of TIKUN's pharmaceutical formulations has been verified by clinical studies and through Real-World Data (RWD).
Since the beginning of 2022, TIKUN Europe launches its CBD product line, which is produced in a certified production facility in France, based on innovative formulas developed by Tikun’s R&D division. The TIKUN CBD series helps with the everyday life annoyances, while at the same time benefits the entire body. In other words, it ensures homeostasis, providing holistic, natural balance.
We are the first company in the world to pave the way for the introduction of medical cannabis in the treatment of patients. The name Tikun Olam, in line with the "Repair The World" philosophy, inspires us to continue our work in the research and development of medical cannabis formulations that will improve the quality of life of the thousands of patients that rely on us.
