Medi Kingdom, Lesotho, Africa
Rhizo Sciences has been involved in the African Cannabis industry since 2017 when it’s worked with the first African Cannabis company, Medi Kingdom.
Africa’s Pioneering Medical Cannabis Producers
Medi Kingdom Holdings was the first licensed medical cannabis producer in Africa. They harvested their first crop in 2017 and currently operate from 3 sites in the Mountain Kingdom of Lesotho, well known for its high quality cannabis growing environment.
The Medi Kingdom project has since been discontinued by Rhizo Sciences as Medi Kingdom didn’t meet essential criteria to deliver the agreed project outcome- see Medi Kingdom Project Status for more information.
Medi Kingdom was developed in Lesotho, a landlocked mountainous country inside South Africa. Lesotho is a major traditional grower of cannabis and has an ideal climate and unique local strains.
Medi kingdom is a privately held company with strong ties to the United Kingdom including pharmaceutical and biotech industry partnerships.
Rhizo Sciences was approached by Medi Kingdom to develop a GMP certified export facility in Africa. We also helped them attain their commercial license, INCB quota, and completed the first export of medical cannabis from African to Canada.
Rhizo Sciences continues to work with African cannabis companies to meet growing international demand for medical cannabis.
