Segment overview: In today’s segment, we are joined by Cann Group Limited CEO Peter Crock here to share information about their company as well as discuss the two licenses issued to the company from the Office of Drug Control (ODC). Cann Group has been issued with one medicinal cannabis permit and two cannabis research permits this year, making them the first Australian Medicinal Cannabis company to be issued with cultivation licences for both medicinal supply and research purposes under the Federal Government’s regulatory system. Their research license allows them to facilitate a research program being undertaken with CSIRO to develop unique cannabis extracts and the supply of plant material for manufacturing into medicinal cannabis products for patient use. Their recently issued medicinal cannabis license will allow them to produce Australian grown material for propagation purposes.
