RSAMMD believes in organic nutrition for the overall vitality of the plant as well as providing the healthiest medication for our patients. We use an advanced Hydroponic method whereby the cannabis plants are grown in clay pebbles and water from the Aquaponics system flushes mineral-rich water consisting of fish waste, over the plants roots which are growing in-between the clay pebbles. Nitrogen rich Worm Tea is added to the fish’s water reservoir, which doesn’t harm the fish, as the entire solution is natural and non-toxic. This organic blend of “waste” consists of the two best known forms of nutrition for healthy plants, accelerated yields, and are packed with necessary organic nutrients and minerals.
The main input into an aquaponics system is fish feed. Fish turn the feed into organic waste, which gets broken down in the system. Through the process of nitrification, this organic waste is ultimately transformed into nitrates, which are absorbed directly from the water by plants growing hydroponically. Therefore, the fish are feeding the plants, and the plants are keeping the water safe for the fish by acting as a biofilter.
- Reduced water use
- Reduced land footprint
- Reduced energy use
- Increased yields
- Improved traceability
- Self regulating system
- Produces organic nutrients from fish waste which feeds plants
- System farms fish from fingerlings to +-800g in 8-10 months
- Fish can either be donated as a TAX break or sold to market for additional
Worm castings also known as vermicompost is used for supplementing your garden soil and plants. Castings from composting worms have been recognized as a natural fertilizer that is packed with a lot of nutrients and minerals. Worm castings contain minerals such as concentrated nitrates, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus.
Worm castings are also a 100% organic fertilizer that can increase a plant’s yield, protect both soil and plants from diseases, and help the soil retain moisture. Worm-tea is the concentrated liquid residue of the red-worms castings and saliva, this liquid run-off is the perfect organic addition to our Aquaponic system to compliment the nitrogen-rich fish waste which is feeding the plants roots.
“The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this.”Albert EinsteinGerman born Theoretical physicist

Our State of the art facility
Upon completion of the 1.25 hectare indoor cultivation facility, RSAMMD will complete its first harvest with 7200 plants to be in a position for processing, extraction and packaging ready for distribution across both domestic and international channels. Creating a seed bank of high-level genetics will help firmly position South Africa as a premium grade player in the international cannabis industry. Genetics will help grow mother plants where cuttings can be taken for cloning and tissue culture to self sustain the grow operations future running capacity.
Advanced Security systems including electric fencing, CCTV, biometrics & 24hr armed manned patrols, Full seed to sale software / hardware, tagging, multiple sites, cloud servers, Access to OR Tambo International airport in 45 minutesAccess to safe, wide roads and positioned inside an hour from Johannesburg, Infrastructure includes backup generators, storage, on site maintenance & renewable energies.
At RSAMMD we believe in thorough testing. We test to ensure the correct percentages, but a good lab analysis also needs to check for pesticides and heavy metals, microbial organisms, fungus, mold, and other impurities to ensure the safest product. Simple, transparent and honest.
RSAMMD operates scalable, highly efficient and fully licensed growing facilities. Utilising the most sustainable techniques combined with the latest in agronomic technology. Our indoor cultivation and processing facilities use standards comparable to those in pharmaceutical and biotech industries. Currently product is laboratory tested by Stellenbosch university and a leading South African cannabis laboratory in Somerset West is available too.
Seedling, Cloning, propagation, tissue culture, genetics RSAMMD currenly has 1 seedbank with 100 individual hermetic rooms to ensure zero cross contamination or pollination occurs. The Seedbank will service the domestic market as well as position South African cannabis genetics firmly in the industry whilst being conscientious of preserving South African culture and tradition.
