Marlborough-based Puro received a license Sept. 17 to grow New Zealand’s largest medical cannabis crop to date, according to a Radio New Zealand report.

The license, granted by the Ministry of Health, allows Puro to grow up to 90,000 low-THC cannabis plants, which will be exported internationally, the news outlet reported.

“It's essentially just a hemp crop,” Puro Director Sank Macfarlane told Radio New Zealand.

Puro has additional cultivation applications under review, according to the news outlet, including one for a recently completed indoor research facility in the Waihopai Valley.
