True Leaf Phase One Done
True Leaf says the current phase of construction of their cannabis cultivation and production facility in Lumby is complete.
The company says the occupancy permit has been granted and they are ready for next steps to become a licensed producer of cannabis. The completed phase includes a two-storey, 18,000 square foot central hub for the initial grow area, laboratory services, whole-plant extraction, and the production of therapeutic cannabis products for pets and their owners.
The facility is on a 40-acre site and was designed to be scalable in more ways than simply adding grow space. "With the completion of this initial phase of True Leaf Campus, we are closer than ever to becoming a licensed producer of cannabis," said Darcy Bomford, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of True Leaf. "Receiving our license and having our own cultivation facility to grow medicinal cannabis and support the research and development of legal medicinal cannabidiol (CBD) products for pets will take our company to the next level. We will be the first cannabis-for-pets company with this advantage."
True Leaf says they continue to work through the Health Canada approval process and depending on Health Canada timelines, approval is expected mid to late 2019.
