The Hydroponics Company Ltd’s (ASX:THC) shares are trading circa 12% higher intra-day at $1.04 following the federal government’s decision to allow medicinal cannabis to be exported from Australia. David Radford, chief executive officer, said: “this federal government initiative supports the growth and further investment in Australian medicinal cannabis companies. “THC is uniquely placed to both develop the international opportunities that will now open up through our international partnerships, as well as accelerate the Australian uptake of medicinal cannabis through our National Access Cannabis clinics that we plan to establish, commencing in early 2018.” New Initiative to support the local medicinal cannabis industry The federal government has approved the exportation of medicinal cannabis in a bid to strengthen the supply of medicinal cannabis amid growing demand domestically and worldwide. This initiative is expected to foster the development of the local medicinal cannabis industry and lead to further investments within the medicinal cannabis market in Australia. Pilot growing program in the first half of 2018 The Hydroponics Company is on track for a pilot cannabis growing program targeted for the first half of 2018, subject to government licencing. Importantly, the build out of the company’s growing facility in Queensland is well advanced.
