Traditional cultivators of cannabis are poised to take a bite out of the medicinal cannabis industry, not just by producing raw material but by becoming involved in manufacturing, processing, and scientific research.
Junior ‘Spirit’ Cottle, the leader of an amalgamated co-operative, SVG Cannabis Revival Community Co-operative Ltd, believes these are the key areas that will allow traditional growers of cannabis to make the biggest impact in this country’s budding medicinal cannabis industry.
Representatives from the SVG Cannabis Revival Community Co-operative Ltd attended a meeting yesterday at the Ministry of Agriculture with minister Saboto Caesar to discuss the integration of traditional cultivators into the local medicinal cannabis value chain spanning 2022 to 2030 and beyond.
“I see this as a very important start. I am aware of what the general public is saying on the issue, and I would want for full openness and transparency as we work with the traditional cultivators for it to be recorded and reflected in the media. We are building this thing together, and we have to reflect that in the general public,” Caesar told Searchlight following the recent meeting.
