The companies said in a statement on Monday that this is the first time the medical cannabis sector has complied with pharmaceutical standards for inhalation, which is the most efficient means for administering the plant.

Teva, the world’s largest generic drugmaker, will be the exclusive marketer and distributor in Israel of the inhaler developed by Syqe Medical. It will be available for home use pending approvals from the country’s Ministry of Health.
