A new farmer led company are hoping their first experience growing medicinal hemp will eventually lead to them producing lower cost CBD products rather than consumers having to rely on imported stock.

Custom harvesters and even a processing plant could one day be on the cards for the north of the state if licensing around hemp production allows it.

Earlier this month the World Health Organisation voted to remove cannabis derived CBD from an international narcotic drug register where it sat alongside heroin.

The move was hailed a major boost in medical cannabis legislation efforts globally.
