In a first, Africa exports medical marijuana to Canada


By Matt Lamers A Medi Kingdom cannabis field in Lesotho. A company in southern Africa has sent the first-ever shipment of medical cannabis from Africa to Canada, a milestone that illustrates how global the international MMJ industry has become in recent years. The medical cannabis was shipped from the landlocked nation of Lesotho on Feb. 26 and is expected to arrive at its destination in Vancouver, British Columbia, in the coming days, Marijuana Business Daily has learned. Seattle-based Rhizo Sciences, the U.S. company that has secured an exclusive off-take agreement with Lesotho-based producer Medi Kingdom, said the MMJ will likely be used for research and development in Canada after it receives a Certificate of Analysis from Anandia Laboratories. The import license from Health Canada was shared with MJBizDaily. In a first, Africa exports medical marijuana to Canada
