Successfully Scaling High Yield Cannabis Production Across Borders
TORONTO and DENVER, April 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MJardin Group, Inc. (“MJardin” or “the Company”) (CSE: MJAR) (OTCQX: MJARF), is pleased to announce what the company believes to be industry leading yield numbers from its “WILL” facility in Brampton, Ontario. “WILL” was the first of the Company’s Canadian asset portfolio to be federally licensed for cultivation and sales by Health Canada.
Drawing on MJardin’s 10 years of commercial growing experience and utilizing proprietary standard operating procedures, the WILL facility produced an average of 61 grams of flower and an additional 26 grams of extractable trim for a total of 87 grams of product per square foot of bench space per harvest since its first harvest in May 2018. These yields have surpassed MJardin’s historical average benchmarks over its last 10 years of experience. The team utilizes cultivation data collected since 2012 to maximize plant density and will typically execute on 6 harvests per room annually. The company will continue to focus on high yield production with expected annual targets of 340 grams per square foot of flower and 190 grams of trim for a total of 530 grams per square foot of bench space across all facilities MJardin owns or advises on.
In addition, the WILL facility is focusing on growing high THC cultivars of which each phenotype has been carefully selected by our skilled in-house operations team. Based on our first 10 months of harvests, these phenotypes are averaging over 21% THC with some varieties as high as 28%.
MJardin is proud to have achieved these results without the use of pesticide application to the plants nor any use of irradiation.
We are extremely pleased that we have been able to generate such high yields from our first Canadian cultivation facility. We have successfully transplanted our high yield growing methodology from our 10 years of US experience into our Canadian portfolio.
Eric Gattoni, Senior Vice President, NA West/Central of MJardin
“What we do best is consistently produce premium cannabis with high yields,” noted Chairman of the Board and Interim CEO, Adrian Montgomery. “We look forward to continued growth with impressive results at WILL and across all our facilities as more production comes online.”
The 32,800 square foot WILL facility was awarded a cultivation license in November 2017 and subsequently produced its first harvest in May 2018. The facility has a base production capacity of approximately 3,000 kg/year and was awarded a sales license by Health Canada in December 2018.
