South Africa gives green light for the use of cannabis as a medication

THC [tetrahydrocannabinol] Pharmacy is the first legal cannabis pharmacy in South Africa that supplies card-carrying medicinal cannabis users and is registered with the South African Pharmacy and the Department of Health.

THC Africa CEO, Kyle Brocklebank, said the pharmacy in Glenanda, Johannesburg supplies two other pharmacies, one In Cannabidiol hub Meyerton in Gauteng and CBD Emporium in Ballito KwaZulu-Natal.

So far, the pharmacy has sold more than three kilograms of dried medical flower. “it’s slow because each card only allows for 120g per person a month which is 4g a day for 30 days,” Brocklebank said. The pharmacy is aiming for around 500 card-carrying members, which will see approximately 30 kg to 50 kg of products sold per month.

The doctor in the pharmacy assists with applying for medical cards, while a chef shows users how to use the herb in cooking.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) Pharmacy works with Professor Benny de Beer, among the first people in South Africa to have obtained a license to cultivate cannabis after the government began easing restrictions on the plant. De Beer owns a cannabis company that is CBD full focus is involved in research, development, and education.

Customers who want to become legal cannabis users are advised through the pharmacy educational section. Whereas those who want to have a card permit for medicinal THC use must fill out a document given to South African Health Product Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) that is responsible for issuing it. The card issued by SAHPRA contains the details of the user, the amount they can use, and the preferred strain.
