About Cannasouth

Based in Waikato, the agricultural heartland of New Zealand, we have established advanced research laboratories, and cultivation facilities.

Combined with a world-class team with over 200 years of combined GMP and pharmaceutical R&D experience, Cannasouth has cemented itself as a leader in the medicinal cannabis industry in New Zealand.

Our goal is to develop next-generation cannabinoid therapeutics to support human and animal health outcomes and improve their quality of life.

Phyto-cannabinoids are remarkable compounds that interact with the human and animal endocannabinoid (ECS) system and, by doing so, can provide improved health and wellbeing outcomes for patients.

Cannasouth Group is proud to be a founding member of the New Zealand Medicinal Cannabis Council (NZMCC).
We are represented on the NZMCC Board by David Macaskill, and we work closely with the NZMCC to help set quality standards for New Zealand patients, and to shape the future of medicinal cannabis in New Zealand.

Cannasouth Cultivation is located on a beautiful, 45ha site in the Waikato heartland. On this site we have developed a state-of-the-art Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) sealed greenhouse facility. This approach enables us to produce Premium-Plus GACP/GMP pharmaceutical quality cannabis flower year-round at a highly competitive production cost while using significantly less energy than indoor cultivation operations.

Natural Provenance

The quality of the plant material is the pillar for the production of cannabis-based medicines. By producing our cannabis flower using the power of the sun while doing so in a strictly controlled growing environment, we can ensure our finished products will meet strict GMP quality standards and be free of contaminants.
