If you hold a medicinal cannabis licence with a ‘nursery’ activity you may import or purchase cannabis seeds and supply them to a medicinal cannabis licence holder with the ‘cultivation’ activity specified.
A ‘nursery’ activity allows
- import of seeds under an import licence
- purchase of cannabis seeds from a licensed cultivator
- supply of seeds to a medicinal cannabis licence holder with the ‘cultivation’ activity specified.
A ‘nursery’ activity does not by itself allow you to cultivate or supply cannabis plants but may be appropriate if you intend to act as a ‘seed merchant’ only.
If you intend to import cannabis seeds, you will also need to apply for a controlled drug import licence for each consignment. The seeds you import must also meet the specifications of MPI Import Health Standard IHS 155.02.05.
A declaration of illicit seeds and plants cannot be made under a Nursery activity.
