Mzuzu University is this morning engaging stakeholders on how best they can grow and support Cannabis production in improving the sector in the country.
Among others, the dialogue has brought delegates from academia, researchers, health practitioners and Cannabis growers.
According to MZUNI Vice Chancellor, John Kalenga Saka, Cannabis Production falls in line with its programmes aimed at contributing to the realisation of Malawi 2063 by promoting agriculture and industrialisation.
“Cannabis has the potential to improve the country’s economic status and create jobs among others, we need to support the industry by coming up with measures which will improve the production of the plant and create a conducive environment for marketing of the Cannabis products,” said Saka.
MZUNI Chemistry Department is the leading facility in the country which has the capability and capacity to test the quality of Cannabis according to industry needs both at the local and international levels.
