Jamaica: MMJ companies form alliance

Amidst increasing calls for policymakers to accelerate efforts to establish Jamaica's medicinal cannabis and hemp industry, the first three companies that were issued licences to operate have taken a bold step forward.

Timeless Herbal Care, Epican, and Everything Oily Labs have forged an alliance which they hope will help move the industry forward and set an example for corporate Jamaica.

President of Timeless Herbal, Courtney Betty announced on Friday at a forum held at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel with various industry players, that the three entities have come together to form a new organisation – the Jamaica Association of Medical Marijuana Companies (JAMC).

JAMC will serve as a voice for the industry in helping to develop policy, regulations, standards, and codes of conduct, among other areas in the industry.

“We want to be an example. It's not very often that you have three companies that have decided — even though we are competitors and we will be competitors — that we will work together in this industry… it's just amazing the synchronicity of our vision, and so we have agreed that we are going to work together,” Betty said.
