Ladner greenhouse to double marijuana production

A large-scale marijuana greenhouse operation in East Ladner has been given the go-ahead to grow even more.

Emerald Health Therapeutics Inc. and Village Farms International, Inc. this week announced the approval from Health Canada for an amendment regarding the cultivation licence for the partnership’s Delta 3 greenhouse.

The companies, calling their joint venture Pure Sunfarms, are now permitted to expand the current cannabis production area to 550,000 square feet, double the original permit.

The entire Delta 3 production facility covers 1.1 million square feet. Pure Sunfarms hopes to have the entire Delta 3 facility converted to cannabis production by the end of the year.

Delta 3 has an automated process line encompassing harvesting, trimming, drying and packaging.

Pure Sunfarms received its cannabis sales licence from Health Canada in July, permitting it to immediately begin selling product.
