A NEW $10 million study into medicinal cannabis will be undertaken at a top-secret research facility in regional NSW, Minister for Agriculture, Adam Marshall, announced today.
Mr Marshall said the research study was the result of a collaboration between the NSW and Commonwealth governments, the Cann Group Ltd, Southern Cross University, Aglive and the University of Newcastle.
"This ground-breaking research study will consider all aspects of the supply chain, including everything from ideal growing conditions to medicinal compound analysis and supply chain traceability," Mr Marshall said.
"Through this study, the NSW Government will build on its ongoing research into the agronomic parameters for cannabis plants, and finding the ideal conditions for producing high quality, year-round, consistent medicinal cannabis products."
Cann Group Ltd CEO Peter Crock said the project was a critical step in the delivery of therapeutically consistent and safe medicinal cannabis products.
