Cannabis startup Helius Therapeutics lands Auckland's first cultivation licence
Posted on October 31 2018
Startup Helius Therapeutics has become the first Auckland-based startup to be issued a cannabis cultivation licence.
The Ministry of Health informed the firm last Friday that its application was successful.
Helius joins Waikato's Cannsouth and Ruatoria-based Hikurangi Cannabis in successfully acquiring the licence to breed strains of cannabis that could be used in medicines.
