AfriAg and Apollon Formularies Ltd are totally focused on opening Apollon’s federally licensed operations in Jamaica this month, which is to include its first revenue generating Retail (Therapeutic) Medical Cannabis Dispensary and a State-of-the-Art Processing Facility. These facilities are both located in the Negril, Jamaica, area, making it now both an idyllic destination for tourists and persons seeking medical cannabis treatment”
