MONTREAL, March 14, 2019 /CNW/ - Cannara Biotech Inc. ("Cannara" or the "Company") (CSE: LOVE) (FRA: 8CB), a vertically integrated cannabis company in the making focused on cultivation and cannabis-infused products, today announced an expansion of the Phase 1 build-out of Cannara's facility from 130,000 to 170,000 square feet. As a result, the license application at Cannara's Farnham location, in process with Health Canada, has been modified accordingly. The 40 000-square-foot expansion will provide more flexibility for cultivation and post-harvest operations. The timelines to complete Phase 1 construction of Cannara's facility have not been affected by the expansion.
Separately, Besar Xhelili has resigned from the Company's Board of Directors to pursue other business interests. The Company is actively evaluating alternative independent directors and expects to fill the vacancy in a timely fashion.
"We are grateful to Besar for his contributions to Cannara and wish him all the best in his future endeavours," said Zohar Krivorot, President and CEO of Cannara Biotech.
