Another cannabis company has received the green light from Health Canada to operate in Delta.
Saying it's a craft cannabis producer, Vodis Pharmaceuticals Inc. on River Road was recently issued a standard cultivation licence and processing licence.
The company notes it operates a 12,000 square-foot indoor facility growing proprietary cultivars for the adult-use, recreational cannabis market.
At full capacity, the Delta facility will yield approximately 1,500 kilograms of craft cannabis annually.
“Our mission will be to provide the Canadian cannabis consumers with the best cannabis grown by small craft producers which we believe will be the growth area of the Canadian cannabis industry,” the company states on its website.
According the Delta's planning department, the rezoning application to operate in the city is still under review.
It will be the fourth cannabis-related business in Delta operating within an industrial zone.
