Britain’s first totally legal cannabis farm will open in the Westcountry after planning permission has been given for an undisclosed site in Wiltshire.
London-based firm Sativa Investments is behind the £10m scheme which will see a seven-and-a-half acre greenhouse built in the countryside.
The site will be used to grow cannabis plants for the production of medicinal cannabis and cannabidiol (CBD) products.
The 300,000 sq/ft unit could grow almost eight tonnes of the drug per year based on industry standards, the Mirror reported in October.
Sativa Investments PLC invest in global companies which are well-placed to take advantage of the dynamic regulatory environment surrounding medical cannabis. Their investment strategy focuses on production, pharmacology, testing and compliance, R&D commercialisation, and sales and marketing.
