  • Why It Matters: Thailand’s medical cannabis industry takes a significant step forward through an international partnership, aiming to position a local strain in the global market.
  • The Big Picture: As Thailand navigates the complexities of cannabis legalization, such initiatives highlight the potential for economic and therapeutic benefits.
  • What To Watch: The impact of legal uncertainties on Thailand’s burgeoning cannabis industry and its aspirations for global leadership.

KANCHANABURI, THAILAND – Marking Thailand’s foray into the global cannabis market, the Thai Medical Cannabis Industrial Estate has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Australia to promote the Thai Tairyoku 01 cannabis strain internationally. This strategic partnership is set to debut at the ICBC Berlin event in April 2024, signaling a significant milestone for the country’s cannabis sector.

WISARAT PONGPRASAT, Chairman of the Thai Medical Cannabis Industrial Estate, alongside marketing and strategy advisor WISARUT RITTILEK, forged the agreement with Mr. Paul Khelley, Chairman of Kunja Gold Ltd., an Australian company renowned for cannabis innovation. This collaboration aims to leverage the unique properties of the Tairyoku 01 strain, known for its high THC content and diverse compounds, suitable for diabetes treatment and smart indoor cultivation technologies.

As Thailand prepares to showcase its achievements on the world stage, the industry’s leaders call on the government to swiftly clarify cannabis legislation. The fluctuating legal landscape poses a risk to investment and development opportunities, potentially sidelining Thailand in favor of neighboring countries embracing economic rejuvenation through cannabis deregulation.
