2017 was when the cannabis industry in Lesotho changed. Lesotho became the first African country to issue cannabis cultivation licences and only a year later international investors like Medigrow, a Canadian backed business, followed. Some of these companies investing in Lesotho’s cannabis industry are listed on the New York stock exchange. Multi-million-dollar companies are partnering all over Lesotho with local companies to grow, harvest and ship Lesotho cannabis globally.

The global cannabis industry is a $12 billion industry and the majority of cannabis cultivation happens in the USA. However, Lesotho cannabis is superior to crop grown in the USA. Here are reasons Lesotho may be an ideal place for cannabis cultivation and exportation, and why it’s attracting so much European investment capital. Lesotho is located inland in the mid-south-eastern region on the continent of Africa. It is a beautiful, mountainous region bordered by several South Africa provinces
Lesotho is listed in the world’s top 10 highest elevation regions, hence a better product that most cannabis producing countries.

The region’s suitable growing conditions, along with land and labour availability, are attracting major players in the cannabis production sector for EU GMP exportable products Canada and British/UK export businesses are already key stakeholders in some of the region’s largest cultivation and production businesses.

We are offering the potential buyer a chance to outright own a Medical Cannabis Cultivation Licence that includes Licences for:
1. Cultivation Licence
2. Manufacture Medical Marijuana Products
3. Medical Cannabis Testing
4. Research
5. Transportation and Supply of Medical Marijuana

Lesotho is the first African country to legalise the commercial cultivation of cannabis for medicinal purposes since 2017. It remains the only African country with an International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) quota to export cannabis oil for medicinal purposes. No country is allowed to move cannabis products outside its borders without the authority and quota from the INCB. South Africa has for instance issued its four initial licences for cannabis production but its output can only be used within that country as it does not yet have an INCB quota to export to other countries. The INCB requires all countries that it has allocated production and export quotas to comply by its stringent rules of monitoring and evaluating licencees to ensure they are not producing for illegal purposes.

8ha of land is available for lease as land can only be leased in Lesotho. The duration of the lease can be from a few months to 99 year lease. The land is less than 20km from the Moshoeshoe 1 international airport. That means easy access to International markets.
