Phase one in a massive cannabis growing and distribution facility in Lumby is taking shape.
True Leaf announced that its cannabis cultivation campus is on schedule for completion in fall 2018.
"This means True Leaf is getting closer to its inspection by Health Canada and nearing the final milestone of receiving our license to produce cannabis," said Darcy Bomford, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of True Leaf.
The first phase of the project includes a 16,000 square foot cannabis cultivation and production facility with over 9,000 square feet for the initial grow area, laboratory services, whole-plant extraction, and the production of therapeutic cannabis products.
"The facilities, known as True Leaf Campus, will be a hub for the development of the company’s medicinal cannabis products."
The project is expected to employ approximately 150 workers during construction and create 35 full and part-time jobs at the start of operations.
"True Leaf seeks to become a major employer in Lumby."
