TORONTO, July 9, 2019 /CNW/ – 48North Cannabis Corp. (“48North” or “the Company”) (TSXV: NRTH) announced that it is converting its Good:House, 48North’s licenced indoor facility located in Brantford, Ontario, from a cultivation-focused facility into a full-time propagation, processing and packaging facility.
In preparation for the Good:Farm’s first outdoor harvest in August and second harvest in October, 48North has begun the process of converting its Brantford facility, located 10 minutes away from the Good:Farm, into the processing, manufacturing, packaging and distribution hub for the Company’s outdoor cultivation site.
Good:Farm, Canada’s first and largest outdoor organic cannabis farm, is expected to yield more than 40,000 kg of dried cannabis, at what 48North expects to be the lowest cost per gram in the country.
In partnership with humble+fume, 48North is currently building out a state-of-the-art cannabis extraction facility able to process more than 30,000 kg of cannabis mass annually. As a result, Good:House will soon be equipped to conduct C02 extraction, producing full-spectrum oil, distillates and isolates, all critical ingredients in the development of next-generation, value-added cannabis products, available for retail sale by 48North in December 2019.
48North is steadfast in its commitment to outdoor-grown cannabis; as a Company we know that low-cost, environmentally friendly cultivation, for both next-generation products and the dried-flower market, is the way of the future. As a result, and to successfully deliver on this commitment, 48North has evolved its cultivation facility in Brantford to a full-time propagation, processing and packaging facility.
Jeannette VanderMarel, co-CEO of 48North
Currently, 48North will be using this extraction lab to execute on its previously announced licensing agreements with Mother & Clone and Avitas in the manufacturing of their 100-per-cent natural, additive-free, single-strain, ultra-refined and purified products, such as vape pens and sublingual sprays.
48North’s Good:House, currently 46,000 sq. ft. located on five acres, is expandable to 350,000 sq. ft., on two-levels.
Looking ahead, 48North plans on building out its processing and manufacturing capabilities at Good:House as it continues to announce additional business verticals and next-generation products, either through licensing agreements or acquisition.
