Althea is an Australian owned cannabis company that produces and imports medical marijuana products. Based out of Victoria, Althea raised $20m in 2018 which it plans to build a commercial cannabis facility in the town of Skye. Joshua Fegan, CEO of Althea, began investigating cannabis business opportunities in 2016 as there was a vacuum for importers and producers in Australia post-legalisation of medical marijuana.
Aphria, one of Canada’s largest medical cannabis companies, supplies Althea with cannabis products and supports the company to produce locally in Australia. With a 25% stake in the company, Aphria is pushing for Althea to become Australia’s leader in medical-grade cannabis.
Althea predominantly imports and produces CBD oils used to medical treatment in Australia.
