Australia is embracing medicinal cannabis as a new treatment for patients with chronic pains and illnesses.
From clinics, to retail, to pharmaceuticals and farms, Australia has been investing heavily into the growing cannabis market.
Australian cannabis companies cover hemp, medicinal marijuana, farms, pharmaceutical and medical clinics. Companies licensed by the government are allowed to cultivate, manufacture and produce medicinal products, marijuana and hemp. Here is a full list of cannabis businesses.
Cannabis manufacturers in Australia are licensed to cultivate and produce medical-grade marijuana products.
They are replacing the previously imported products with locally grown Australian products.
In this list of Cannabis Companies we will cover licensed importers, exports, cultivators and manufacturers.

TasCann is a unique Tasmanian company that has been in the works since 2014.
The founder, Troy Langman, moved from business banking into the cannabis industry two years before medicinal cannabis was legalised. After seeing cases of medicinal cannabis (CBD) treating children with severe epilepsy and muscle spasms, he could see there was a need for Australia to produce healthy medicinal cannabis products to treat patients with severe illness and disorders.
TasCann has a limited online presence. When searching through official government records, we can locate and confirm the ODC licenses and their presence in Tasmania, Australia.
However, their website is limited to less than five pages, their Twitter account’s last post was in March 20, 2018, and there is little to no information on the activities over the past 12 months.

By 2025 Australia’s cannabis industry is supposed to reach $5b with medicinal cannabis and even more if Australia votes to legalise recreational marijuana, like New Zealand in 2020.
The green gold rush is real and Australian entrepreneurs are rushing to get on board the cannabis hype by making startups and applying for the licenses to import and/or cultivate medicinal marijuana.
We look forward to adding many more cannabis companies onto this list. If you would like your company listed, contact us with your information.
