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 cultivation, extraction and distribution of Value-for-Money, 100% pure, NZ certified organic, cannabinoid-based products, made right here in beautiful Aotearoa New Zealand.

“Changing the world… consistent drop at a time”

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 world leading team of scientific, medical, horticultural and commercial experts with a vast knowledge across all aspects of the medicinal cannabis value chain. This includes a world renowned 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 assume responsibility for Quality & Compliance.

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 can 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 early 2019 and we will release a more detailed statement December 2018 regarding the recent appointment of clinical pharmacologist, Dr Denise Taylor, and horticultural scientist, Dr Mike Nichols, to SETEK’s 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, and our support for the ‘Smokefree Aotearoa New Zealand 2025’ goal. In addition, SETEK will never have any involvement with synthetic cannabis products.
