Several weeks ago we ran a story about local company Spring Sciences Australia (SSA) and the construction of their medicinal cannabis grow facility. Despite the recent rains, construction is progressing and the building will start to emerge above the treeline in the coming weeks. The stated aim is to be cultivating the company’s first crop before the end of the year with a first harvest some 8-9weeks later.

Whilst working on the completion of the facility, the company has not been letting weeds grow under their feet and they have been actively pursuing business deals to firm up the manufacturing and supply chain in order to move medicinal cannabis products into the Australian market.
One such deal has just been announced, with SSA confirming it has entered into a binding Letter of Intent with Bombay Hemp Company Ltd (Boheco) for the exclusive supply of the Boheco range of cannabis-derived products to the Australian market.
The Bombay Hemp Company, incorporated in 2013, is an Indian agribusiness focused on the development of high-quality cannabis-derived products in the wellness, nutrition, healthcare and textile industries. With a world class product line, the company is recognised as a pioneer of the burgeoning Indian cannabis sector.
The agreement between SSA and Boheco will, over time, bring the full Boheco product line to Australia under the SSA brand and explore an R&D platform for the development of new products for both the consumer and pharmaceutical markets.
The primary focus is on a holistic approach to general wellbeing derived from a healthy active lifestyle and balanced nutrition - an Active for Life philosophy. The agreement further develops SSA’s progressive development of bringing established cannabis-derived products to the Australian market and the development of a new range of infused products to cater for the rapidly expanding cannabinoid market.
The exact product line and the timing of their availability to the Australian market is yet to be decided but will include a range of products covering healthy nutrition, general wellness and personal care.
SSA says it hopes that the product range will be available through both local retailers and an online portal specialising in medicinal cannabis products.
