It is said that the Greek hero Odysseus sailed beyond the Pillars of Hercules and founded the ancient seaside city of Lisbon in modern-day Portugal. In 2015, Key Leaves began its own odyssey. In 2020, Alessandro Radici became CEO, and he envisioned an organization of excellence and uncompromising values along this journey. Licensed by Infarmed, the government agency of Portugal that regulates medicines and health products, for the cultivation, import, and export of cannabis products, Key Leaves is a fully indoor pharmaceutical-grade Phyto-cannabinoids producer for medicinal use.

With a diverse international team, Key Leaves proudly works with some of the most renowned professionals in the industry. Since its founding, Key Leaves has invested in the best technologies and partnerships to deliver a highly standardized premium product with uninterrupted supply.

After completing more than twenty-one full cultivation cycles, Key Leaves is delivering the finest medicinal cannabis products in compliance with Portugal’s laws and regulations. Their dedication to science, education, and support is a key factor in their success. Fluence shares these values and is proud to partner with Key Leaves..
