VANCOUVER, Feb. 26, 2019 /CNW/ - Emerald Plants Health Source (OTCQB:STNN) ("EPHS" or the "Company"), is pleased to announce it has officially closed on a 56-acre site in Merritt, B.C. EPHS is now ready to proceed with their submissions for Development and Building permits with the City of Merritt.
Located on industrial properties, the site is zoned M1 for both cannabis and technology infrastructure, which will allow EPHS to pursue their vision of building a state-of-the-art cannabis cultivation facility and campus. Utilizing proven technology that can handle power and infrastructure automation, the future plans of the Merritt site will serve to lower the companies COGs significantly to an industry low of ~$0.50. With plans in place, EHPS will produce indoor connoisseur-quality craft cannabis at scale, with plans to phase in 1.2 M sq. ft. over the next 5 years.
EPHS President, Stevan Perry stated, "I've had my eye on this perfect piece of land for several years and can proudly confirm that we now own it! There are very few sites that have access to a wide range of low-cost power assets, on site services and that are located in a town primed for new industry." Further, the closing of the Tolko Mill in 2016 has put pressure on Merritt council to push for new industry and stimulate economic development. Perry further states, "This is another great milestone for our company, and we commit to working with the City of Merritt and its community as our project unfolds."

Our team is excited to continue down the path of becoming the lowest cost producer of craft cannabis at scale, in Canada," commented Mr. Perry.
