PICKERING, Ontario, Oct. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As product shortages characterized the first week of legal cannabis sales across Canada, Canada House Wellness Group Inc (“Canada House” or the “Company”) (CSE: CHV) has made significant progress towards completion of its production facility in Pickering, Ontario, with a sales license expected in the coming weeks and full production targeted for the first quarter of 2019.
Currently, Canada House occupies over 22,000 square feet in Pickering. The facility is expected to be able to produce between 2000 and 3000 kilograms per annum of dried flower at full capacity. Canada House currently has four batches of premium medical cannabis growing at its facility and holds two lots of dried flower which it recently acquired through a bulk transfer with another Canadian Licensed Producer.
“We are about to complete our first harvest in early-November,” said Canada House CEO Chris Churchill-Smith. “We are on track to be in full capacity flower production for Q1 in 2019, with our oil products coming shortly after in Q2.”
“We anticipate the need for high quality, premium cannabis for our medical patients and a requirement for a wide variety of strains unseen by any of Canada’s licensed producers,” adds Churchill-Smith. “Although our primary focus is the medical cannabis market, this production will no doubt be of interest to recreational customers as well. We continue to explore new opportunities to leverage our current capabilities and add new grow facilities as we penetrate both markets.”
Earlier this month, Abba Medix Corp, a subsidiary of Canada House, launched Abba Medix Genetics, an online portal, to sell seeds, and has already secured sales to two of Health Canada’s Licensed Producers. Abba Medix Genetics currently holds 64 different strains in its vault and offers over 150 strains of seeds for purchase through the user-friendly online portal found at http://www.abbamedixgenetics.com.
“The Abba Medix Genetics portal offers a solution for finding high quality genetics by providing sought-after phenotypes from top-quality breeders which have high germination rates and arrive at the LP Phyto sanitized and already approved by Health Canada,” commented Riley McGee, President of Abba Medix Corp.
