To be the leading South African EU-GMP certified medical cannabis producer, bringing together best practices and African advantage.
SafriCanna aims to become one of the largest EU-GMP certified cannabis cultivation exporter out of Africa.
SafriCanna was licensed by SAHPRA for GACP cultivation in 2020 and the facility was GMP approved, and CUMCS certified in 2021.
SafriCanna’s trading company is already fully funded with ownership by private investors and its management team.
SafriCanna is a South African cannabis company whose efforts are focused on the growth, cultivation, processing and export of medicinal EU-GMP cannabis products to international markets.
South Africa is a predominantly untapped resource in the global medicinal cannabis market, and as our continent plays catch-up, not only on legalisation but also on growth and distribution, SafriCanna aims to assert itself as South Africa’s premium, fully-integrated medicinal cannabis brand.
The face of cannabis is changing, and as it continues to do so, the opportunity for SafriCanna to develop a premium, intrinsically South African offering is becoming more and more prevalent.
Our world-class South African expertise combined with best-of-breed international insights and innovation strategies are a formula for success both at home and abroad.
Making our products available to the steadily growing international cannabis market is an opportunity for us to put South African medicinal cannabis on the map and in-turn promote the growth of the cannabis market on our own shores.
SafriCanna is pioneering the shift towards a future where South African medicinal cannabis is recognised in every corner of the globe.
