In March 2021 Murray Meds was acquired by ECS Botanics, another large and successful fully licensed medicinal cannabis cultivator. Murray Meds is a fully licensed Australian medicinal cannabis producer, our licenses include research, cultivation and manufacturing. By cultivating and manufacturing to highest pharmaceutical quality standards that exist for medicinal cannabis, and by focusing on the lowest possible cost, Murray Meds is a leading provider of high quality affordable medicinal cannabis.
We utilise progressive and innovative cultivation methodologies to reduce the cultivation costs of medicinal cannabis by adopting regenerative and organic agricultural practices. We do this in an environmentally sustainable way. Striving for zero waste, by using solar power to be a net producer of electricity and by following regenerative agriculture practices reducing expensive chemical inputs, we rebuild nature’s natural solar, mineral and water cycles and returning nutrient integrity back into the medicinal cannabis.
Our operations are licensed by the Australian Office of Drug Control and compliant with the strict Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961. This Convention is an international treaty to prohibit production and supply of specific (nominally narcotic) drugs and of drugs with similar effects except under licence for specific purposes, such as medical treatment and research. We also comply with the strict Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations issued by regulators such as the Australian Therapeutic Goods (TGA) and the European authorities.
Our team is actively seeking to collaborate with others in this emerging industry by determining the advantages and challenges of growing medicinal cannabis in an outdoor environment, contact us for a confidential chat.
The team from Colorado State University in Fort Collins looked at how much electricity and natural gas are needed in various states to grow cannabis in an artificial indoor climate. The researchers then calculated the greenhouse-gas emissions associated with this energy consumption.
The team from found that the energy required to yield one kilogram of dried cannabis flower produces the equivalent of 2–5 tonnes of carbon dioxide. Moving weed production from indoor facilities to greenhouses and the great outdoors would help to shrink the carbon footprint!
