Our team has witnessed first-hand the power of medicinal cannabis in relieving chronic and debilitating disease symptoms in areas where traditional treatments lack efficacy and or have significant side effects. It’s these personal experiences that motivated us to establish our company in 2015.

Our passion for the plant underpins our focus on putting the needs of patients first – and we believe, as an independent company, that we are uniquely positioned to achieve more and be more for the benefit of humanity.
