This initiative is expected to foster the development of the local medicinal cannabis industry and lead to further investments within the medicinal cannabis market in Australia. Pilot growing program in the first half of 2018 The Hydroponics Company is on track for a pilot cannabis growing program targeted for the first half of 2018, subject to government licencing.
