High-Quality Economical Cannabis
CITIVA is an international cannabis company with operations in Jamaica, the United States, and Italy.
As cannabis laws around the world are being reformed and the desire for reliable, safe cannabis at accessible prices continues to grow, our goal is to provide the best in class, high-quality, and low-cost cannabis in the global marketplace.
Cultivation & Research
The Jamaican environment is ideal for outdoor cultivation due to its tropical climate and 12-12 light cycle. CITIVA is developing a partnership with a 1,200-acre farming estate, on which all farmable land is dedicated to cannabis cultivation. CITIVA also plans to operate 140,000 sq. ft. of greenhouse space, which will be used as part of our cultivation process.
University of the West Indies
In partnership with the University of the West Indies (UWI), CITIVA operates 7,000 sq. ft. of cultivation and laboratory space, with access to state-of-the-art research and equipment within UWI’s world-class Medical Sciences Building.
CITIVA’s unique position at UWI allows us to cultivate, process, and research cannabis, with production costs significantly lower than those in the US or Canada. Because of this, we are able to give back to the community that helps drive our vision by consistently paying above market wages in Jamaica.
Since 2014, CITIVA has built and developed a network of exclusive partnerships with a variety of Jamaican stakeholders including University and government officials, local farmers, and community-based, non-profit organizations.
Forza Vitale is an Italian herb extracts manufacturer, and their expert team helps to lead CITIVA’s Science, Research, and Development Team. They help to ensure that our extraction process produces the finest quality cannabis-based products.
University of West Indies
CITIVA’s partnership with UWI offers us world-class facilities, academic resources, and operating and cultivation space to further our understanding of the potential uses of the cannabis plant.
Partnerships with a variety of non-profit, philanthropy initiatives allow CITIVA to give back to the island, and to maintain relationships with the community and with Jamaican government leaders.
Distributors and Retailers
CITIVA has selected distribution and retail partners based in Jamaica, and throughout the global market. Our experience and relationships in Jamaica have positioned us to swiftly and successfully enter the Jamaican market, while our partnership with Forza Vitale offers us an immediate foothold in an enormous and growing European market.
CITIVA’s cultivation partner, Braco Estates, operates a 300-year old farming estate in Trelawny, Jamaica, with 1,200 acres of farmable land for cannabis production, and 140,000 sq. ft. of greenhouse space. We will share with Braco an 8,000 sq. ft. Production facility.
