Timeless Herbal Care Makes First Shipment of Medical Marijuana to Canada


Jamaican medical marijuana producer Timeless Herbal Care has successfully delivered the first shipment of extracted medical marijuana oil to Canada. This marks Jamaica’s first international legal export of extracted medical marijuana.  The shipment to Canada was authorized by an import permit issued by the Government of Canada through Health Canada for Jamaica; and an export permit issued by the Ministry of Health in Jamaica.

According to the Honourable Minister Audley Shaw, the Jamaican Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries “Jamaica is uniquely positioned to be a global player and I am committed to providing the leadership and resources required for opening the international markets including Canada and Europe for our licensed and regulated Jamaican companies.”
 The Minister’s statement was echoed by Lincoln Allen the CEO of the Jamaica Cannabis Licensing Authority (CLA) who has also identified this international export opportunity as a major target for the CLA.

According to Mr. Allen “the CLA is fulfilling it’s mandate and commitment to enabling timely development of the framework to position Jamaica as a global leader for the export of medical cannabis.”
The Import permit from Health Canada was obtained on behalf of Jamaican Timeless Herbal Care who was then granted an export permit by the Ministry of Health in Jamaica. According to Courtney Betty President and CEO of Timeless Herbal Care; “Timeless continues to be a trailblazer in Jamaica and the accomplishment of landing the first shipment of extracted oil which was cultivated and extracted at our facilities in Jamaica is a fulfillment of a mission we began five years ago.”
“I am proud of our local footprint in Jamaica which provides us with access to the largest potential legal cultivation market in the world though our own licensed facilities, and the other licensed Jamaican cultivators: the Christiana Potato Growers Co-operative and the country’s indigenous community, the Maroons.”
 Timeless is further strengthened by a strong team of international partners including O.penVAPE and New York City’s Mount Sinai hospital who are helping to guide the company in producing the highest grade extracted oil which can be used for clinical trials leading to the development of true medicinal products for the world.
With today’s announcement and the commitment of both Minister Shaw and the Licensing Authority, Jamaica is rapidly moving to taking it’s rightful place in the trillion-dollar medical marijuana industry. Several key Jamaican programs will be announced in the weeks to come.
