The Thai Cannabis Corporation (TCC) establishes commercial supply chains to grow, process, and sell medicinal plants (and their derivatives) in Thailand, as described below.
The plant whose scientific name is Cannabis sativa L., commonly known as the cannabis plant, is legally divided into two categories based on the percentage of THC that a variant contains:
Cannabis plants produce another medicinally-useful chemical: CBD. CBD is relatively unregulated (in Thailand and internationally). Therefore, a cannabis plant that contained a very high percentage of CBD, but which had a THC percentage below the legal threshold, could be called “medicinal cannabis,” but not “marijuana.”
Kratom is a medicinal plant made from the leaves of the tropical tree with the scientific name Mitragyna speciosa. In Southeast Asia, kratom has been an important part of traditional herbal medicine for millennia. Today, kratom is legal at the federal level in the USA and in many other nations, with many known medicinal uses. Thailand recently legalized kratom along with cannabis.
The Thai Cannabis Corporation (TCC) has initiated and/or participated in the creation of many business networks, including:
Thai Traditional Treatments and Therapies Network (4TN): Focused on the production, processing, and sale of the herbal products regulated primarily by Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health’s Department of Traditional and Alternative Medicine (DTAM), including cannabis and kratom. 4TN is closely associated with the temples of Thailand’s state religion, Buddhism, which provide spiritual and physical healing services to most of Thailand’s 70 million people. 4TN’s first clinic opened in February 2022.
WealthyFarmers: Focused on building farm revenues and wealth through commercial strategy planning, WeathyFarmers builds profitable supply chains from farmer to consumer. 4TN (above) can be seen as an application of WeathyFarmers’ approach to marijuana (also known as “medicinal cannabis”) in Thailand.
