Located in the Kingdom of Lesotho in southern Africa, Medigrow is licensed by the Lesotho Ministry of Health to cultivate and manufacture medical cannabis and cannabis oil products.

“We commend the Lesotho Government for its leadership in establishing the first legal cannabis market in Africa and its commitment to meeting the highest international standards for product quality,” said Navdeep Dhaliwal, President of Supreme Cannabis. “Medigrow’s vision for local economic development and sustainable growth is in line with our Company’s core values, and we look forward to supporting Medigrow as they lead the development of a new internationally-recognized medical cannabis industry in the Kingdom of Lesotho.”

Ayurcann (CSE:AYUR) entered into a joint venture with Bazelet Group, Israel’s largest privately held medical cannabis company. Ayurcann CEO Igal Sudman shared the company’s excitement about bringing unique terpene-enriched medicinal cannabis to the Canadian marketplace. 

“Canada is a very closed-loop country, and the opportunity to bring a variety of different enhancement and technologically advanced products is very important to us. The relationship that we formed with Bazelet is going to enhance our offerings into the Canadian marketplace,” Sudman said. 

Bazelet has launched multiple lines of terpene-enriched cannabis oils; each one is specifically designed for various indications, symptoms and personal needs. The company’s terpene-enriched products are optimized for women’s health, for elderly population needs, for specific types of pains (muscle, joint, neuropathic) and for improved night sleep. 

According to Sudman, there are a lot of larger companies that have tried to do this, but none have been able to successfully bring innovation into the market. Ayurcann is rapidly forging partnerships with several companies worldwide, including Cannmart, Patient Choice and Kindred Partners.

“We’re growing the business, customer base, relationships and partnerships worldwide. We’re bringing the latest technology into Canada, and enhancing not only our company, but the investors’ value moving forward,” added Sudman.
