WA first – Little Green Pharma starts growing medicinal cannabis

14 December 2017

The first crop of medicinal cannabis is being cultivated in Western Australia by Little Green Pharma.

The event marks the first time medicinal cannabis has been cultivated locally and the company aims to have product available nationally for patients within the first few months of 2018.

Little Green Pharma Managing Director, Fleta Solomon, said the company had been working steadily towards the goal of producing clean, southwest grown medicinal cannabis products and reaching the cultivation stage was a major milestone.

“Medicinal cannabis is relatively new and strictly controlled in Australia. Companies wanting to produce it have to obtain licences and permits from both federal and state government agencies,” Ms Solomon said. “We were the first WA company to be granted a licence earlier this year to cultivate and produce medicinal cannabis and it has taken six months of hard work to reach the cultivation stage this week.”

“We are very excited about the future of our medicinal cannabis products.”
