An East Ladner cannabis greenhouse operation has reached another milestone.
Growing organically certified product at its 125,000-square-foot facility on 104th Street, Rubicon Organics Inc. announced that it has received its first purchase order from Cannabis NB, New Brunswick’s provincial cannabis distributor and retailer.
Rubicon Organics is now officially coast-to-coast with products available to consumers in eight provinces and territories, said CEO Jesse McConnell in a news release.
Not as large as the other two East Ladner cannabis greenhouses currently operating, Rubicon Organics last month announced that it signed a purchase and sales agreement with the Yukon Liquor Corporation.
According to the latest numbers from Statistics Canada, retail sales of legal adult-use cannabis in the country increased by almost 14 per cent in March, compared to February.
Recreational cannabis sales in this country reached $298.1 million for the month.
Sales increased in every province including B.C.
At $41.3 million, B.C. sales were up 11.7 per cent.
The City of Delta currently has no cannabis retail stores and they are not allowed under the zoning bylaw.
The city is currently considering a bylaw amendment application to allow a retail shop to open on Annacis Island.
