Since the ODC introduced a medicinal cannabis framework in 2016, the Australian industry has been scrambling to catch up with the decades-worth of knowledge in other more advanced markets such as Canada and the US. Given this gap in local knowledge and experience, Murray Meds intends to open up a Medicinal Cannabis Training Academy to share critical industry know-how and practical operational experience to help the Australian workforce and local market up-skill and stay competitive.
