As quoted in the press release:

Aurora Cannabis announced today that Polish Ministry of Health granted the Company approval for its first shipment of medical cannabis to Poland. In the coming days, Aurora Deutschland GmbH will ship the products to a pain treatment center and a hospital in Warsaw. This is an important milestone for medical patients in Poland, as it is believed to be the first time a non-government run business has been granted approval to supply medical cannabis products in the country.

Under Polish legislation, physicians can prescribe medical cannabis products to patients who can then access it through registered pharmacies. In specific instances, products will be covered under statutory health insurance, thus establishing a new and significant medical market for Aurora.
