A PROMINENT UK cannabis company has secured a licence to grow cannabis with a THC ratio of more than 0.2%.

Somerset-based Sativa Group says the cannabis cultivated at its new facility will be used to support its research efforts with partner institution Kings College London.

The company already has a licence to grow low-THC cannabis which was granted in 2018.

The Somerset Live website reports that Sativa has an established secure, purpose-built growing facility – which has already been approved by the UK Home Office – as part of the application process.  

It reports that the plants will be grown from the EU-approved seeds and could deliver up to four crops a year, with the dried flower going into an on-site extraction process.

Sativa’s work with King’s College London involves research on the impact of cannabinoids on inflammation and respiratory conditions.

The UK Home Office is responsible for licensing cannabis cultivation and granted the licence to Sativa Group subsidiary Sativa Cultivation and Extraction.

A Freedom Of Information Request by BusinessCann to the Home Office show 19 high-THC licences have been granted in the last year.
