Until recently, Cannabis has been a prohibited substance in New Zealand, with the majority of people unaware of its medicinal properties. Those who have wanted to use it as an alternative to pharmaceutically prescribed drugs often with harsh side-effects faced crippling costs and zero or severely restricted supply.
For the past couple of years, some cannabidiol (CBD) products have been available in New Zealand on prescription only.
In December 2019, New Zealand’s Government passed legislation intended to improve access to medicinal cannabis products. Under the legislative changes, a Medicinal Cannabis Scheme will enable domestic cultivation and manufacture of medicinal cannabis products and the setting of minimum quality standards for products and all stages of production.
Produco manages the registration and application process for medicinal cannabis licenses to import, store, security, export & manufacture CBD and THC products for commercial production in New Zealand. Our extensive understanding of the regulations will ensure that your medicinal cannabis products meet set, Minimum quality standards.
The aim of the medicinal cannabis minimum quality standard is to ensure the consistency and quality of the products that medical practitioners prescribe to their patients.
