RMUTI steps up cannabis research

Rajamangala University of Technology Isan (RMUTI) Khon Kaen Campus is teaming up with partners to research and develop production and processing of cannabis, hemp and other Thai herbs for medical purposes.

The cooperation is outlined in a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed with GreenWorks Asia and the Na Fay Tambon Administrative Organisation (TAO) in the northeastern province.

The collaboration has seven purposes: to study and improve hemp species to find optimised hemp varietals specifically for Khon Kaen; to study and improve methods of hemp cultivation to increase product quantity and quality; to study and develop new hemp species for Thailand; to study and improve cannabidiol (CBD) as a mixture in Thai herbal products including but not limited to turmeric, lemongrass, black galingale, gotu kola and chrysanthemum; to study and improve herbs for industrial processing and export to the global market; to study and develop food and beverage, nutrition, wellness, skincare, cosmetic products and perfume that contain CBD; and to utilise the Bio-Circular-Green (BCG) economy model to study and improve hemp and Thai traditional herbs.

Tambon administration organisations in Na Fay and Phu Pha in Khon Kaen will take part in pilot projects under the MoU. [Read more @ Bangkok Post]
