“Repair the World,” or Tikun Olam, is what each of the Tikun Olan strains is designed to do in its own way. Over 30,000 patients have found relief with potent strains developed to produce measurable results.
A Long History of Cultivation
Tikun Olam serves patients worldwide, growing drastically since being founded in 2005. The non-profit’s headquarter is in Tel Aviv, Israel and is licensed by the Ministry of Health in Israel.
In 2010, Tikun Olam became regulated and switched to a limited company with the goal of:
- Developing medical cannabis products
- Growing medical cannabis
In 2012, the development of a high CBD, low THC (less than 2%) strain led to global exposure of Tikun and put them on the trajectory that has led to the global recognition the company has today.
A year after the strain’s development, 3,000 patients began using Tikun Olam strains to help them better manage their health issues. The company has 11,000 active licenses to treat patients and has since expanded its team to include:
- Medical professionals
Tikun Olam Production and Development
In Northern Israel, facilities under the strict supervision of the Ministry of Health continually test and develop medical cannabis strains that are designed to treat specific medical issues. Strains are produced and extraction of potent active ingredients occurs to produce edibles, topicals, vapes and more.
Original research is done in the facility to learn how cannabis can help:
- Opioid addiction
- Cancer patients
- Behavioral problems
- Motor disorders
- Chron’s disease
- So much more
Over a dozen strains are produced, with some containing less than 1% THC so that they offer the key benefits of CBD without the psychoactive effects found in traditional cannabis.
Medical Cannabis Research and Innovation
Tikun Olam’s medical cannabis research and innovation continue to inspire patients trying to find relief from pain, behavioral issues, diseases and other health-related issues. Olan has created one of the world’s largest medical cannabis databases filled with clinical trials, results and successes.
Treatment information is available for those suffering from:
- Digestive problems
- Palliative cancer care
Multiple studies from Tikun found that:
- 90% of patients reported noticeable pain relief when suffering from digestive issues (2023 update with Tiny Might 2 study)
- Avidekel, one of the potent Tikun Olam strains, helped significantly decrease pain and inflammation more than aspirin or tramadol
- Children with autism experienced significantly lower anxiety and behavioral issues after three months of cannabis treatment; 33% were even able to reduce their dosages
Tikun is committed to helping understand what medical cannabis can truly do to promote greater health and less suffering. Patients have found significant relief when using key, custom strains that promote the right mixture of CBD/THC.

Erez’s soothing properties make it ideal for nighttime use. Due to its high THC content, this strain is recommended for more experienced users.
