Australian cannabis company becomes first to export to New Zealand

With New Zealanders able to request access to medicinal cannabis dried flower as of December 6th, Byron Bay-based Australian Natural Therapeutics Group (ANTG) has received export approval from their Kiwi neighbors. The company has been granted the green light to ship its locally cultivated product to New Zealand - the first Aussie company to do so - in partnership with a local distributor of the medicine.

ANTG’s Eve CBD flower will be accessed through NZ’s largest medicinal cannabis distributor NUBU Pharmaceuticals in what the Australian company’s CEO Matthew Cantelo said was a landmark deal for both countries. “This agreement is not only a historic first for New Zealand but also beneficial for the Australian industry as a whole,” Cantelo said. 

NUBU Pharmaceuticals co-founder and CEO Mark Dye said he could not be happier about the deal, which will give New Zealanders access to ANTG’s high-quality medicinal cannabis products. “Being the first company to legally sell cannabis in New Zealand is beyond exciting - I can’t even begin to explain the blood, sweat, and tears it has taken to get here,” Dye said.
