The cannabis growing and production facility in Lumby is expected to be completed this fall.
Vernon based True Leaf Medicine International says the first phase incudes a two story central hub for growing, and processing therapeutic hemp-based products for people and pets.
A second phase will see another larger building for growing plants on the 40 acre site owned by the company.
“As our True Leaf Campus project nears completion, we are getting closer to becoming a licensed producer of cannabis,” said Darcy Bomford, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of True Leaf. “We look forward to adding legal medicinal cannabidiol (CBD) products for pets to our existing line of hemp-seed based supplements for dogs and cats.”
True Leaf is in the final stages of approval to become a licensed producer of federally-approved medicinal cannabis for the Canadian market. The license is subject to a Health Canada inspection to allow for the production, manufacture, and distribution of cannabis products upon the completion of the Lumby facility.
The Company has also announced some personnel changes:
Bal Bhullar has resigned from his role as Corporate Secretary effective October 16, 2018 and will continue to serve as the company’s General Counsel. Dr. Chris Spooner has resigned as Chief Scientific Officer, effective October 15, 2018.
“The Company thanks Dr. Spooner for his years of contribution and service to True Leaf and wishes him the best in his future endeavors,” says Bomford.
