Emerald Health Therapeutics’ New Organic Cannabis Operation Receives Cultivation License for Outdoor Grow Area
The 12 acres (~500,000 square feet) of outdoor cultivation are part of an overall 20-acre site that includes 156,000 sq. ft. in two greenhouses. This operation was purposefully designed for organic cultivation with the goal of exceeding 20,000 kg of annual production. There is also the prospect of securing and licensing an additional adjacent 12 acres of outdoor grow area, with potential for an additional approximately 10,000 kg of annual production.
“As one of the few licensed producers licensed for outdoor growing, receiving this cultivation license highlights our planning and execution to achieve potentially very-low cost organic cannabis. We have been working for months on ground and seed preparation and are now preparing for planting,” said Dr.
With the organic operation’s first greenhouse ready for cultivation and the second greenhouse near completion, Emerald will continue to apply for license amendments to expand its licensed cultivation areas. Emerald is also working to complete the requirements for municipal permitting.
