The first licence to grow medicinal cannabis in Guernsey has been issued by the government.
It is one of seven applications that have been requested, since a framework was agreed earlier this year.
Before the agreement was reached, only licences for the cultivation and processing of CBD products were available.
The applications were made to the Bailiwick of Guernsey Cannabis Agency, which holds responsibility for granting the licences as well as reviewing, regulating and inspecting the businesses. The applications are also reviewed by the UK Home Office and a site visit is made before the licence is granted.
Guernsey's government hopes the medicinal cannabis industry will boost and diversify the island’s economy.
