We use the modern possibilities of telemedicine to make your life easier - and offer you personalized medicine tailored to your needs.

About Algea Care

At Algea Care, our vision is to optimize your everyday life through an innovative form of healthcare. Through telemedicine and video consultations, we reduce not only your workload, but also that of our doctors - who can invest the time saved in your personalized therapy. Our specialized doctors treat you easily while you are at home. We support you in the selection of your mail-order pharmacies, which will send your medication to your home without stress - at low prices, without effort and in high quality.

Julian Wichmann, MD, and Anna Kouparanis founded Algea Care in 2020 in Frankfurt, Germany. He is a board-certified radiology and digital health specialist, and she had already been working as a manager and entrepreneur in the medical cannabis industry for several years.

In view of the grievances with the conditions for treatment with medical cannabis that prevailed until then, the desire for a more patient-friendly therapy arose - and so they developed Algea Care. Algea Care counters labor-intensive processes such as legally required documentation or patient organization with modern, innovative processes that significantly reduce the workload for our physicians and allow them to focus fully on our patients.


Our values

  • Easy

    Health should not be a question of time. That's why we've digitized our processes so that your consultations can simply take place in your living room via video. This gives our doctors more time for your individual treatment.

  • Personalized

    We see the future of healthcare in its personalization. Our doctors look at people, their needs and their complaints individually and respond with treatment tailored to them. This is the only way we can improve and maintain your health.

  • Competent

    Experience has shown that many non-medical questions arise during the treatment of chronic diseases with cannabinoids. Our team therefore also looks after patients outside of consultation hours and provides competent and friendly help.

  • Innovative

    In order to develop personalized treatment options, our doctors need time. With our modern digital processes, we relieve them of as much organizational work as possible. So they can invest more time in you.

  • Natural

    Medical cannabis is a natural medicine with often minor side effects. After all, the treatment of one of your ailments should not lead to a new different therapy. That is why we only use natural and high quality treatments.

Our team

Our team is dedicated to the mission of enhancing your well-being through innovative processes simply from the comfort of your home.

Our partners

We work with a variety of companies to provide you with the best possible medical cannabis treatment.



Storz & Bickel is a true pioneer: As the world's first and only manufacturer of cannabinoid vaporizers, it has been developing innovative products for use in cannabinoid therapy for almost 20 years. In 1996, Markus Storz developed the first prototype of the VOLCANO vaporizer, which is now known worldwide. MIGHTY MEDIC and VOLCANO MEDIC 2 are certified medical devices for the inhalation of cannabinoids.

With the help of the vaporizers, the active substances are absorbed into the human body through the lungs. The aim is to achieve a fast effect while avoiding harmful substances from combustion. Studies have shown that at least one third of the cannabinoids present in the device enter our bloodstream and take effect quickly.



Breezy is your online store for therapy accessories for the treatment with medical cannabis. In addition to vaporizers specifically designed for medical treatment, Breezy also offers a variety of complementary products to support your therapy.

In addition to selling therapy accessories, Breezy also offers individual purchase consultations to its customers.
