Marlborough company gets go-ahead for country’s largest medicinal cannabis crop

Marlborough is on track to produce New Zealand’s largest crop of medicinal cannabis.

Medicinal cannabis company Puro has received a licence from the Ministry of Health, allowing it to commercially cultivate cannabis for medical use at its Kēkērengu site.

The company hopes to cultivate 90,000 plants.

Puro director Sank Macfarlane said the licence would allow the company to sell medical cannabis to pharmaceutical buyers, and facilitate New Zealand’s first ever bulk export of medical cannabis.

“This is the next step in our journey to become a worldwide supplier of premium medical cannabis,” he said.
