BRACEBRIDGE, ON, Sept.16, 2019 /CNW/ - Muskoka Grown Limited ("Muskoka Grown" or the "Company") proudly announces that it has received two updates from Health Canada; its sales amendment allowing for the distribution of dried cannabis products to authorized provincial distributors and retailers, and the approval to expand cannabis operations at its purposely built facility in the heart of Ontario's cottage country.
The expansion approval doubles the cannabis cultivation space bringing the fully financed and constructed 65,000 sq. ft. facility to full capacity. This allows the Company to grow its selection of curated strains across all 21 hydroponic rooms immediately. Along with the additional cultivation space, the incremental 32,500 sq. ft provides space for a full scale laboratory and an area designated for research & development. The full scale laboratory and research & development room will provide Muskoka Grown with the opportunity to set-up an advanced breeding program to produce proprietary strains.
"This marks a major achievement for Muskoka Grown and we are thrilled to enter this next phase of growth. As we look ahead, we look forward to executing on our strategy to deliver high-quality craft cannabis nationwide under the Muskoka Grown brand." said David Grand, CEO & Founder, Muskoka Grown.
In anticipation of these milestones, Muskoka Grown has been passionately growing a variety of premium cannabis strains to immediately supply quality craft products to the Canadian recreational market and will work to prepare plants to populate the additional cultivation space under the expansion approval. The Company is also focused on internal procedures in order to achieve its good manufacturing practices certification.
