Timeless Herbal Care, “the leading cannabis company in Jamaica”, has announced the first harvest of commercial medical marijuana in Jamaica:

Timeless Herbal Care Ltd., the leading medical marijuana brand in Jamaica, announced it has successful harvested the first legal commercial cannabis in Jamaica in over a century. The harvest was certified by the Jamaican Cannabis Licensing Authority. This milestone further distinguishes the company as the leading trailblazer in the development and advancement of the medical marijuana industry in Jamaica.

The Timeless Journey began when the company helped create Jamaica’s legal marijuana framework. Subsequently, the company received the first research and development permit, and planted the first legal marijuana in Jamaica in over 102 years.

The cannabis was cultivated in the only facility in the Caribbean certified to grow medical marijuana, and represents an important step in Timeless Herbal Care’s mission to develop scientifically-based products that meet the highest standards of safety, efficacy, and quality control.

Under the leadership of Founder and CEO, Courtney Betty, Timeless Herbal Care Ltd. has worked with government officials and licensing agencies to build a vertically integrated structure from seed-to-patient, that meets international standards.

“This is a momentous day in Jamaica, and a tremendous victory for the global medical marijuana industry,” Betty said. “We look forward to processing our plants to providing pure and natural cannabis oils, not only for the Jamaican market, but also for the international export market.”
