Our plans

Puro are set to produce the sauvignon blanc of cannabis.

In late 2020 we will be planting over 80,000 medicinal cannabis plants at Kekerengu. Puro’s seeds, imported from Australia, Europe and America, consist of six carefully selected cultivars, handpicked for their stability, consistency, high levels of CBD and CBG, and low levels of THC.

Puro’s indoor plants at Waihopai will be a mixture of CBD and THC varieties, with high, moderate and low levels of THC.

We have two premium sites:

  • Waihopai Valley - Marlborough, New Zealand: Our research headquarters and the site for our high security greenhouses, growing a mixture of CBD and high THC medicinal cannabis varieties.
  • Kekerengu - Kaikoura, New Zealand: An elevated coastal farm where Puro will grow our CBD, CBG and low THC plants.

Our sites give us the capacity to become New Zealand’s largest grower of medical cannabis.

Licenced to grow - Puro has licences to research medicinal cannabis, import and propagate seeds, and to cultivate commercially indoors and outdoors.

Sunshine and UV - We have handpicked our sites for their high sunshine hours and intense UV ratings. Our location allows us to grow high potency cannabis with truly unique flavour profiles (flavonoids) and terpenes which are essential for ‘the entourage effect’ and highly sought after by buyers.

Organic and sustainable - Puro is growing under organic protocols and has commenced the organic certification process for our outdoor crop. Once we achieve organic certification, we anticipate we will be one of a very small number of cultivators worldwide with accreditation - providing us with a highly marketable point of difference.


Winterhome has been farmed by the Macfarlane family for more than 130 years - it is a privilege to be able to access this special place.

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, its elevated coastal property provides a very special microclimate well suited to growing low-THC hemp in the open air.

In late 2020 we will grow over 80,000 low-THC medical cannabis plants at Kekerengu, which is expected to make Puro the largest medical cannabis grower in the country.

Waihopai Valley

Puro's research and indoor growing site is nestled in a quiet area of the Waihopai Valley in Marlborough.

Construction of our research research facility at Waihopai was completed in September 2020. The facility will enable us to undertake market leading research and ensure our products are among the best in the world.

Puro has been issued its research facility licence at Waihopai, and we're in the process of applying for our cultivation licence for our breeding facility.

Marlborough has some of the highest UV rates and boast an average of 2,457 sunshine hours per year.
