Highlands Investments, an operator of one of the largest outdoor cannabis grow facilities in Africa, is set to export 8.5 tonnes of its Highlands Pure THC and CBD flower and trim into the European medical cannabis market (North Macedonia). This is the largest single legal cannabis export, to date.
This recent shipment follows a previously successful export of 176.5kg of THC flower to Europe in April.
This was our 4th and most successful harvest to date. It equates four 40-foot containers full of vacuum-packed medical grade cannabis, which is so large that it will require chartering a plane to get it to Macedonia.Highlands Investments Managing Director, Mark Corbett
Cannabis shipping is a highly complex process as the industry is closely regulated and monitored. Both the supplier and receiver of the products need to be licensed. Furthermore, the shipping companies also require stringent licensing to move raw cannabis materials and other products between legal jurisdictions.
According to the Prohibition Partners Key Insights from the European Cannabis Report, 6th Edition (April 2021), the cannabis market in Europe is forecast to reach $3.8 billion by 2025.
Highlands Investments is a licensed cultivator of high-quality GAP and ISO 22000 certified cannabis. As a diversified cannabis business, Highlands cultivates, processes and packages high-quality THC and CBD cannabis flower for production of medical-grade cannabis products. The cannabis is produced in a state-of-the-art ISO 22000 and GACP certified facility in Lesotho.
