A number of NZZMCC projects are getting underway as the industry prepares for amendments to the Misuse of Drugs Act and the development of associated regulations.

We will be working with standards-setting bodies and regulators on a number of industry areas to establish robust standards for industry activities including:

  • testing of cannabinoids in plants and products;
  • cultivation and harvesting of cannabis for medicinal purposes;
  • extraction and processing methods;
  • labelling and advertising of medicinal cannabis products.

We are also discussing with Medical Cannabis Awareness New Zealand a set of proposed guidelines for colour-coding products sold in New Zealand based on their ratio of THC:CBD.
