Efforts to add considerable value to the therapeutic cannabis sector
Indeed, AMCUC (the Moroccan Consultative Association for the Use of Cannabis) and three other national research structures have stated their desire to further explore not only the scientific but also the socio-economic aspects of the cannabis sector.
The scope of the various agreements signed between Morocco and the other stakeholders
Signed by Redouane Rabii, president of AMCUC and Bouchta Moumni, president of the University Abdekmalek Essaâdi, the first agreement aims to strengthen and develop in a concrete and practical way the scientific research on cannabis and its derivatives, in order to achieve a better scientific exploitation of the natural wealth of this plant.
The second agreement was signed by Mr Rabii and Anouar Arbai, the representative of the CCIS (Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services) of the region of Tangier-Tetouan-Al Hoceima, and aims to support initiatives promoting both the industrial and therapeutic use of cannabis in the region.
In the third partnership agreement that Mr Rabii signed with Abdelkhalek Farhat, director of ANPMA (the National Agency for Medicinal and Aromatic Plants), the aim is to carry out further research on cannabis and its derivatives, while training farmers in the framework of the training project called "Kif Takwin", launched by the association. In this way, they plan to increase the learning level of the beneficiaries and promote the modernisation of agriculture.
Finally, the fourth agreement, signed by Mr Rabii and Ikram Ganet, representative of the MAScIR Foundation (Moroccan Foundation for Advanced Science, Innovation and Research), plans to develop more strategic lines of research to be able to exploit the full potential of the cannabis plant in the country.
