Medicinal Cannabis in New Zealand
SETEK is a 100% New Zealand-owned and operated 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 cultivation, processing and manufacture of GMP grade, pure organic, cannabis-based medicines and skincare products, produced right here in beautiful Aotearoa New Zealand.
On the 21st of February 2019, SETEK became the fourth commercial company to receive a Licence To Cultivate a Prohibited Plant from the New Zealand Ministry of Health, and only the second to receive a licence allowing the cultivation of high THC cultivars.
SETEK expects to be operational from mid-2020.
“Helping people in need, one consistent drop at a time”
We are on a journey to build a sustainable medicinal cannabis and cannabis-infused skincare business that will change lives for the better, whilst being gentle on our planet and its resources.
SETEK Therapeutics has assembled a world-leading team of scientific, medical, horticultural, cannabis, dermo-cosmetics, financial, legal and commercial experts with a vast knowledge across all aspects of the medicinal cannabis and natural skincare sectors.
SETEK recently acquired a 26-hectare greenfield site overlooking Lake Taupo where we expect to commence construction of our new state-of-the-art GAP/GMP horticultural research, development and manufacturing facility early 2020.
Whilst we welcome enquiries from prospective business partners and investors, it should be noted that SETEK will never sell lose leaf flower (‘bud’) for smoking. This reflects the company’s strategic direction and support for the ‘Smokefree Aotearoa New Zealand 2025’ goal.
