The MOCA Story
Our journey into the cannabis industry commenced in earnest when in early 2016, when the Australian Government announced the birth of the medical cannabis industry in Australia. Legislation to enable the cultivation of cannabis for medicinal and related research purposes in Australia was passed by Parliament on 29 February 2016. The amendments relating to licensing came into effect on 30 October 2016.
This curious news sparked an intensive 2 year research for the directors, into why marijuana (which had been, up until that time, considered, among other things, an illegal and illicit drug), was now being reclassified as a medicine?
After, thousands of hours of research in academic journals, visiting academic professors in Europe and inspecting several cannabis cultivation facilities in Canada the founders of the company had our answer. The startling explanation to this question of why cannabis went from, supposedly gateway drug to being considered one of the most important medicines of the 21st century.

A Research Mission
The answer to this medical focused question is, that a series of scientific discoveries made by Dr Raphael Mechoulam an Israeli researcher.
Toward the end of the 20th century the discovery revealed that human beings have what is now known as an endocannabinoid system, also known as ECS.
Like other crucial systems in the human body, the ECS plays an important role, in fact perhaps one of the most fundamental roles in keeping humans healthy.
Because, the sole purpose of ECS is to maintain balance within an organism.
