Cannabis plants budding success for medicinal market in top-secret Tasmanian greenhouse

It's the greenhouse that will make you green with envy but only a select few will be able to visit the Tasmanian Botanics processing facility — for security reasons.

The greenhouse has taken the latest construction ideas from around the world to streamline the production of medicinal cannabis for the Australian and export market.

And now it's all systems go to grow, after the Tasmanian company secured permits from the Office of Drug Control to cultivate and export medicinal cannabis.

"This puts our company as one of the frontrunners in the Australian medicinal cannabis industry," Tasmanian Botanics managing director, Tony Roberts, said.

Key points:
  • Tasmanian Botanics will supply the local market with exports to Germany, and China also on the radar
  • The managing director says the operation had been a steep learning curve
  • The location of the facility cannot be disclosed for security reasons
