Medicinal cannabis products are just a legalisation away since New Zealand company, Medical Kiwi has partnered with two overseas companies.

The Nelson-based business, Medical Kiwi, has signed exclusive deals with UK distributors Liberty Herbal Technologies Ltd, producer of medicinal cannabis inhaler technology and Vitality CBD Limited, which has a full range of CBD (cannabidiol) products.

The partnership is in preparation for the medical cannabis facility set to be built in Brightwater in late 2020.

Medical Kiwi board chair and former Nelson mayor, Aldo Miccio said the steps taken with overseas suppliers were to secure a firm launch pad for the company.

“We’re getting ready to push ‘go’ in New Zealand as soon as the law allows.”
