African Cannabis is a premier licensed producer of cannabis in Africa for medical applications, both for export markets and growing domestic markets. The company has already obtained its cultivation license in Lesotho.

African Cannabis aims to establish a globally recognised brand in production and export of quality, legally approved dried cannabis flower and cannabis oil products for medical uses.

African Cannabis intends to rapidly take advantage of growing global demand, the growing trend of legalisation across the African continent, and optimal production conditions in Africa.

In participating North American and European markets, the cost to produce medical cannabis is increasing, prompting buyers to seek premium cannabis from other legalized countries.

African Cannabis is the solution for global cannabis markets, being a premium licensed producer and exporter of high-quality medical cannabis, at lower costs.

With near-perfect growing conditions, lower costs of labour and operations, and many more benefits of cultivating cannabis in African countries, African Cannabis is leading the way in elevating Africa as a medical cannabis supplier to the world.

African Cannabis will produce and market dried cannabis flowers and cannabis oils of various tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) contents.

Africa

A Vast Opportunity Exists as Africa Catches Up on Legalisation.

More than 10,000 tons of cannabis are currently produced on the continent each year, according to the UN.

But African governments have not yet followed the trend of legalisation seen in Europe and the Americas, presenting a vast opportunity for developing legal production.

A few countries have begun the process of legalisation and offering licenses, including Lesotho, signalling a wider shift toward more liberal policies.

Several other African governments are considering tapping into what can be a lucrative natural resource for the continent.

  • Increasingly favourable legal and regulatory environment
  • Skilled agricultural labour
  • Lower labour costs
  • Ideal climate for cultivation
  • Rich soils
  • Essential infrastructure

Global Opportunity

The Market for Medical Cannabis is Growing Rapidly, Driven by Rapid Legalisation and Increasing Medical Applications

Medical Cannabis Market, US$ billion

Rapid Global Pace of Legalisation is a Major Driver of Growth

  • In the U.S., the tax revenues of legal marijuana are now comparable with other commodities such as draft beer and e-cigarettes.
  • In the U.S., 28 states allow the sale of medical marijuana and out of these 7 states allow the sale of marijuana for both recreational and medical use.
  • In Europe, more than 10 countries now allow the sale of medical marijuana.
