We’re helping to change the way the world delivers its health outcomes

More and more people are realising the benefits of plant-based remedies and alternative therapies. And their experiences are supported by a growing library of medical research which continues to identify the therapeutic benefits and pharmaceutical uses of medicinal cannabis and CBD for a range of ailments and conditions.

Like you, we’ve been watching with interest as countries around the world open up access to medicinal cannabis and CBD wellbeing products. We’ve read the research, talked with start-up companies and listened to the amazing stories from those using these products about the significantly positive impact it has had on their lives. Medical cannabis and CBD is part of a long overdue health and wellbeing revolution that replaces so many other pharmaceuticals and will benefit millions of people. We’re excited about the opportunity to bring these products to market in New Zealand and globally.

We’re ready!

  • built a strong health-based, scientific and business savvy team

We’re a team committed to scientific, health-based success

We have a strong health-based, scientific and business savvy team leading Medical Kiwi’s exciting future.

Our team of professionals in medicine, biochemistry, governance, investment and sales oversee Medical Kiwi’s operations. Their specialist knowledge, skills and proven corporate governance, combined with the partnerships developed with best-of-breed businesses around the world mean Medical Kiwi has the people in place to achieve our goals and we’re well placed to begin generating revenue from early 2020.

Medical Kiwi co-founders, Aldo Miccio and Peter Win, are a formidable pairing with a proven track record of establishing and growing start-up businesses. Blending Aldo’s governance and Peter’s spirit of innovation, the pair co-founded ASX-listed company New Zealand Coastal Seafoods. Their focus is now on being at the forefront of the medicinal cannabis and wellbeing research and manufacturing industry in New Zealand.

The appointment of Dr David Porter, Consultant Rheumatologist and Dr Michael Packer, Senior Research Scientist, to the Medical Kiwi Board of Directors demonstrates our commitment to science-based production of innovative, high-quality, accessible products. David’s work in the health service treating and working with patients with chronic pain is invaluable to informing our medical research and development of products. Michael’s practical experience and successes give us a great platform to further research and develop solutions for health care issues that are controlled by the endocannabinoid system that cannabis has such a direct influence over.
