The Constitutional Court’s judgment implies you are only allowed to use cannabis when you plant your own cannabis seeds. This gives rise to a new question: is it legal to import cannabis seeds from a overseas seed bank? The judgment implies that this question can be answered affirmatively. As it is now allowed to grow your own cannabis, it can logically be deduced that it is therefore also allowed to purchase cannabis seeds. These seeds can be bought locally, but can also be imported from a seed bank overseas when you have a phytosanitary document.
The “Rise” auction fetched 5.5 Ethereum (ETH) – the preferred cryptocurrency of NFT marketplaces – while “Burn” was sold for 1.852 ETH. Benas bought both, paying approximately $16,500 worth of ETH which amounted to roughly R224,000 at the time. Bidding on both auctions closed at the end of May, with GGG announcing Benas as the owner of “Rise” and “Burn” on Friday.
“One of the biggest problems in the industry has been the ownership of genetics and it’s one of the biggest parts of the Gage Green story.”
“I’ve been interested in cannabis for around 20 years,” Benas told Business Insider South Africa.
GGG recently combined “fine art, digital currency and luxury cannabis” in the form of an NFT auction featuring two ten-packs of cannabis seeds – of the “Rise” and “Burn” strain – which would be sold exclusively to the highest bidder. Two digitised artworks, which were originally hand painted by GGG founder Jeff Selsor, were included in the auctions.
“There’s a lot of value that people don’t see,” explains Benas.
A South African entrepreneur recently bought rare cannabis seeds, and digital art, at a non-fungible token (NFT) auction for approximately R224,000.
South Africans are slowly becoming more accustomed to the global NFT craze which has created overnight millionaires through the sale of digital artworks. A gallery based in Cape Town managed to get R59,000 for a digital artwork auctioned in March and a local NFT marketplace was launched a month later with backing from sports stars and celebrities.
