Jamaica has opened its first seed-to-sale cannabis retail store located in Market place on Constant Spring Road. The ribbon-cutting ceremony signified the beginning of a new era for the use of medical marijuana in Jamaica. As the first company to be granted a licenses to cultivate, process and retail medical grade ganja by the Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) in Jamaica, EPICAN offers a product rooted in Jamaican sun and soil. The McKenzie brothers spent three years educating local farmers in methods that meet international growing standards in an effort to bring marijuana farming in Jamaica out of the shadows and on to the global stage.
