St. Vincent and the Grenadines' Agriculture Minister, the Honourable Saboto Caesar, has commended locally owned and operated company “Medicinal” on the recent launch of an extensive line of locally produced medicinal cannabis products.

The island nation has embarked on a path for the establishment of a modern medicinal industry that entails not only the production of raw material from plants and fungi, but also the processing of raw material for the nutraceutical and pharmaceutical industry.

Traditional cultivators have been significantly affected by ash fall as a result of the explosive eruptions of the La Soufriere volcano. Several major commercial operators also have established vigorous cleaning operations to restart production post the most recent eruptions. 

The list of items launched by Medicinal includes lotions and tinctures.

The Hon. Minister noted that St. Vincent and the Grenadines has an established and fast maturing platform for the production of medicine in the hemisphere.

“I wish to encourage our scientists to continue to dedicate their efforts in research and development with the objective of lifting the profile of the industry,” Minister Caesar concluded.

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has eleven members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Martinique and Guadeloupe.
