The Story About
Cannabis in Lesotho

When it comes to quality

We reject the notion that perfection is unattainable

When it comes to top tier flower, it’s all about the details. That’s why we cultivate a multitude of genetically unique cultivars to ensure that we produce top-tier flower while maintaining operational efficiency.

We nurture our crops to receive the individual care they need while maximizing quality and yield – be it environmental preferences, specialized irrigation or fertigation recipes – and each plant is grown in a tailored, stress free environment designed to meet the individual needs of each cultivar.

Export High Quality Medical Cannabis From Africa


To lead the sustainable export of medical cannabis from Africa and the production of high-grade ingredients for the pharmaceutical, therapeutical and nutraceutical industries in regulated international markets.


To cultivate and supply some of the most unique range of strains specific to the requirements of our pharmaceutical off-takers and partner with leading global institutions for future research & development purposes.


By leveraging the unique tech knowledge we acquired in past years, we are now running successful commercial cultivation operations and vertically integrated recognisable brands in a rapidly growing industry.

Our Beginning

We began this life changing journey to establish Medical Cannabis Production in Lesotho in 2019 after receiving all necessary licenses from the Kingdom of Lesotho to practice medical cannabis in the country. Very quickly after we have started to plan our state of the art cultivation and processing facilities according to strict medical standards in one of the most beautiful places on earth. 

Since day one we started to invest in best practices at every turn to ensure people will have access to the most effective options for feeling and living better, and it starts with the first brick we lay. From there we will constantly research and develop new forms of cannabinoid-based products to improve people’s well-being.

Construction Phase

In less than 24 months, under COVID-19 restrictionists, the company was able to fully plan and execute the construction phase and to make it’s 10k sqm. cultivation facility ready by end of 2021 for Medical Cannabis Production in Lesotho

Here is a short summary of the construction project:

Our Present

Our Journey reached a significant milestone in 2022 when we completed the construction phase and began full operational status with a total of 10,000 sqm of indoor sealed cultivation space with automated greenhouses roofs and 7,000 sqm of state-of-the-art post-harvest and service spaces, – making WeGROW’s facility in Lesotho the pride of African cannabis sector by offering wholesale medical cannabis products globally.


We willfully engage in a quest to be the very best in processing and methodology. Our pursuit of perfection in cultivation is the quest to try the best that nature has to offer – done by those that grow it the best. Read more.


Consequently, we take upon our shoulders the task of providing unparalleled quality products that are always properly identified, tested, and free of harmful substances. Read more.

Our Future

We see a future where medical cannabis is a globally recognized and accessible source of healing and wellness. With a focus on establishing a strong export presence in Europe, specifically in Germany, Austria and the United Kingdom, we are forging a path towards bridging the gap between the medical cannabis industry and traditional medicine.

The facility uses quality by design methods to guarantee hygienic design, logical process flow, and a fully controlled processing atmosphere. An Environmental Management System (EMS) is in place to keep track of and alert when the facility’s temperature or humidity veers off-spec.

Before being exported to its ultimate destination, our cannabis products are manufactured as an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) and dried, cured, trimmed, and sized.

Why Lesotho became our home

Lesotho has significant environmental and socio-economic advantages for the growing of high quality, contaminant-free medical grade cannabis

Lesotho introduced legislation to legalise the cultivation and use of medical cannabis in 2008 under the Lesotho, Drugs of Abuse Act and one of the first Southern African Countries to do this, spearheading the growth of this fast growing industry in Africa.

The country has a supportive Government; attractive fiscal terms; and good infrastructure: roads, equipment supply, power, telecoms, water, and security. Lesotho’s pristine natural environment is very well suited to growing medical cannabis. It has an abundance of contaminant-free soils, clean water and extensive sunshine year round.

Up to 80% of the 2.2 million-strong population of Lesotho is dependent on subsistence farming, a livelihood that has been made more unstable by frequent and persistent drought.

Commercial cannabis has the potential to change this. “Cannabis is going to set free this country,” says Dr. Emmanuel Letete, an economist in Lesotho’s Ministry of Development Planning. “Although people don’t see it yet.” Where the kingdom’s mountainous geography once meant that it missed out on big agribusiness opportunities, this time its altitude could be the key to its fortune.

Frequently Asked Questions About WeGROW

Medical cannabis refers to cannabis or marijuana that is used for medical purposes, typically to relieve symptoms of certain medical conditions. The export of medical cannabis to global markets is necessary because not all countries have legalized medical cannabis, and those that have often have limited domestic production capabilities. Importing medical cannabis allows patients in these countries to access high quality medical cannabis products that they would not otherwise be able to access.

WeGROW’s Medical cannabis products that are exported include dried cannabis flower buds, cannabis extracts, and cannabis-based pharmaceutical bulk products. These products are used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including chronic pain, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy.

Several countries in Europe import medical cannabis from WeGROW, including Germany, Portugal, and Israel in the middle east. These countries have established import frameworks to allow the import of medical cannabis products that have been authorized by regulatory authorities in each country.

WeGROW is the home to more than 100 families from the surrounding communities in Lesotho.
