The regulatory processes can be a challenge for companies wanting to cultivate, process, extract and export cannabis (THC or CBD products) in Australia, even for organisations with considerable international experience. As the cannabis regulatory system is just so different, we advise you to engage us with country-specific questions. In addition as you design, build, validate and operate your Medicinal Cannabis facility, you will bump into a host of additional red tape and practical cultivation problems.
