The first commercial aquaponics producer of medical marijuana in Canada is now licensed.

HAMILTON, ON, Feb. 25, 2016 /CNW/ - Green Relief Inc. of Flamborough, Ontario has become the Hamilton's area's first and Canada's 28th licensed producer of medical marijuana. It is also Canada's first, and North America's largest, aquaponics commercial grow facility.

The commercial aquaponics facility was the brainchild of Lyn Bravo, a landscape architecture graduate of the University of Guelph. Lyn's husband Warren Bravo and his business partner, Steve LeBlanc, founded medical marijuana company, Green Relief Inc. "We are elated with the approval from Health Canada", stated Warren Bravo. Green Relief Inc. is now a licensed producer of medical cannabis under the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (Canada) issued pursuant to the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada) (the "MMPR").

The facility is housed in a recently completed earth-sheltered green-roof building with controlled environment grow rooms, hybrid LED lighting and sophisticated aquaponics equipment.

The Green Relief team plans to offer a completely different customer experience by providing the purest "better than organic" cannabis in the world. Built on a platform of advocacy for natural wellness and healing, sustainability and exceptional quality, they are dedicated to advancing the science of aquaponics agriculture and medical cannabis.

Green Relief has created the ultimate growing environment for cannabis. Aquaponics, regarded as the most innovative and sustainable form of agriculture, combines the best attributes of aquaculture and hydroponics without the need to discard water or add chemical fertilizers. Aquaponics produces 10 times the crop yield per acre and uses 90% less water than conventional farming. The facility will also serve as a source of healthy, organic fish for local communities.

Plans for aggressive growth with an expansion into a second building of 210,000 square feet are already in the works. The new facility includes a research and development laboratory as well as facilities for plant tissue culture and cannabis oil production.
