Hilltop Leaf will operate a medical cannabis cultivation and production facility in Dumfries and Galloway.

Scotland will have its first medical cannabis farm after Hilltop Leaf secured £2m in funding “to become one of the UK’s largest producers of medical cannabis products for the specialist prescription market.”

Founded in 2019, the private company will operate a 11,000 m² cannabis cultivation and production facility in Dumfries and Galloway, with the investment enabling it to expand into commercial sales.

Hamish Clegg, the founder and CEO of Hilltop Leaf said sky news: “We are building a business around the three key pillars of health innovation, environmental sustainability and community impact.”

He continued: “Although medical marijuana usage is growing, the UK is solely dependent on imports and we understand there is an issue with supply chain reliability.” As a result, his company will create dozens of jobs for the local market, eventually supplying 10 per cent of the UK market.

“Our aim is to provide a high-quality, affordable solution to treat conditions ranging from chronic pain to severe epilepsy, while also taking pressure off the NHS. We plan to rival other countries like Canada, Germany and Israel with our own reliable supply from the hills of Scotland,” added Mr Clegg.

“We believe that cannabis has the potential to offer new and better treatments for some conditions and provide an alternative to opioids for pain relief,” commented Tom Hurley. Along with private investors, his company, Traditum Private Equity, provided the investment for the project.

The director of customer services continued, “We have been impressed with the strength of the company’s management team, their meticulous approach to quality, and their vision of creating a purpose-built facility backed by research and development.”

“Hilltop Leaf has the opportunity to gain a first-mover advantage and become a clear leader in the emerging UK medical cannabis industry,” added Hurley.
