Cannasouth (NZX: CBD ) has received confirmation from the Medicinal Cannabis Agency (Agency) that it has received the assessment applications submitted by Cannasouth for its first three white label products. If successful, Cannasouth expects these products to be available to patients in the first half of 2021.

The Medicinal Cannabis Agency has indicated product assessments and registration against the New Zealand quality standards could take up to three months to complete. Following successful registration, Cannasouth will work quickly to place orders and import product from its Australian supplier for distribution in New Zealand.


CEO Mark Lucas says, “The submission is an important milestone for Cannasouth as we take another step towards our goal of bringing products to the New Zealand market. It is also significant for patients because we understand that to date no new product applications have been approved by the Agency.


“If our application is accepted, we would be well on our way towards making more medicinal cannabis options available for patients and giving prescribers and patients more choices for treating a variety of medical conditions. We are committed to bringing quality medicines to New Zealand patients as quickly as possible, while also developing export opportunities for our products.”


Meanwhile, Cannasouth is working on its second phase of product development, which involves manufacturing products in New Zealand. In order to produce Medicinal Cannabis medicines locally, Cannasouth must:


• Complete its cultivation and manufacturing facility build projects with JV partner Cannasouth Cultivation Limited and subsidiary Midwest Pharmaceutics NZ Limited, respectively;

• Obtain the full suite of commercial licences from the Ministry of Health;

• Gain certification for Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) of products.


Once these steps are complete, Cannasouth will be able to take advantage of multiple revenue opportunities. These range from dried flower and extracts sales, through to finished products for both Cannasouth’s own brand and potential contract manufacture customers.
