Africa's First Medical Marijuana Dispensary

May 21, 2018


Back in November of 2017, South Africa's highest court was considering the legalization of marijuana, locally referred to as 'dagga.' While that has yet to work itself out, there is some noteworthy progress to speak of. 



Last week, the Weekend Witness reported that Durban North is officially home to the first medical marijuana dispensary in Africa. While this first-of-its-kind dagga dispensary won't be selling you any herb to smoke, a drink called “Marley coffee” and cannabis infused edibles will be sold in the dispensary's cafe area.


At the Holistic Relief Wellness and Pain Management Centre, a doctor, chiropractor or "healer" will consult and prescribe different strengths of oils infused with cannabis and other ingredients to their patients.


Krithi Thaver, founder of Canna Culture and chair of the KZN branch of the Cannabis Development Council of SA, commented “The global consensus is growing that the hemp crop is in fact a ‘miracle’ plant and we are immensely pleased to be able to finally offer this ‘miracle’ to Durban."
