New Mexico cannabis company exporting to Israel

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico medical marijuana company has begun exporting cannabis-based medicine to Israel.

Ultra Health spokeswoman Marissa Novel said recently the company started exporting earlier this month through a partnership with Israeli pharmaceutical group Panaxai.

The medicine was created using hemp grown in Bernalillo County.

Ultra Health is believed to be one of the first U.S. companies to export medical marijuana to Israel.

Ultra Health CEO and president Duke Rodriguez says New Mexico officials played a crucial role in getting the export effort started.
