Medicinal Cannabis in New Zealand

SETEK Therapeutics is a 100% NZ owned and operated, ‘seed to shelf’ medicinal cannabis company based in Taupo in the central North Island of New Zealand.

Our purpose is to help improve the quality of people’s lives through the production and distribution of GMP-certified, value for money, cannabinoid-based medicinal products, made right here in beautiful New Zealand.

We are on a journey to build a sustainable medicinal cannabis business that will change lives for the better, whilst being gentle on our planet and its resources.

SETEK Therapeutics has assembled a team of scientific, medical, horticultural and commercial experts with a vast knowledge across all aspects of the medicinal cannabis value chain. This includes a Horticultural scientist that will head our grow operation; an Organic chemist who will lead our extraction facility; and a Neuroscientist who amongst other things will take up the post of Quality & Compliance Manager.

We have completed the blueprint for our state-of-the-art cultivation facility and the design/specification of our super-critical extraction and laboratory facilities.

We have our own building which we will use for cultivation & extraction, and we are already in the final stages of planning for a second expansive, high security site for our next phase of operations.

We expect to receive the appropriate licenses from the Ministry of Health late 2018/early 2019 and we expect to release a statement soon regarding another key appointment to SETEK’s highly credible Advisory Board.

We will continue to update this page over the course of the next few weeks and months with more exciting developments and details regarding the SETEK Therapeutics team, our vision, and our plans to achieve global significance in the exciting, new medicinal cannabis industry.

PLEASE NOTE: Whilst we welcome enquiries from prospective business partners and investors, it should be noted that SETEK Therapeutics will never sell ‘bud’ for smoking. This strategy reflects our company’s strategic direction, social values and our support for the ‘Smokefree Aotearoa New Zealand 2025’ goal. In addition, SETEK will never have any involvement with synthetic cannabis products.
