• UKUSEKELA  cultivation facilities are laid out and its QA/QC systems are designed with Good Agricultural Practice (“GAP”) guidelines as a minimum standard.

  • Growing high-quality biomass is best achieved by employing skilled and experienced staff who have grown cannabis in various environments; indoor, greenhouse and open air.

  • As each location differs, experienced staff are required to adapt the cultivation techniques to the local environment and compensate for seasonal changes. Quality and consistency are more important to us at UKUSEKELA than production yield.

  • While consumers will preferentially seek consistency, this is an obligatory requirement for a medical product.  

  • The challenge is producing a consistent end-product, derived from a natural source, and with stable chemical profile and potency.  

  • Cultivating a high quality, consistent biomass is necessary to set the platform for a manufacturing a consistent end-product.

Independent laboratory & world class standards

Lesotho’s regulations require all medical cannabis export shipments to be accompanied by a certificate of analysis (“CoA”) to ensure product safety and confirm cannabinoid profile and potency.

US (Massachusetts) based, ProVerde Labs, has set up an independent analytical laboratory in Maseru to service Lesotho’s medical cannabis industry. ProVerde is accredited in accordance with ISOISO/IEC 17025:2005.

Local and international customers will have the confidence that medicinal cannabis, sourced from Lesotho, will be free of harmful chemicals, heavy metals, bacterial pathogens and microbiological contaminants.
