A Vernon-based medicinal marijuana company is breaking ground on a 25,000-square-foot cannabis facility after purchasing 40 acres of land in Lumby in December 2017. 

True Leaf Medicine Inc. will be constructing a 16,000-square-foot hydroponic grow building and a 9,000-square-foot building housing laboratory services, extraction and post-processing, to break ground on March 2nd, 2018. The two buildings are phase one of construction plans for the site. 

The groundbreaking ceremony will be attended by True Leaf chairperson and former B.C. Premier Mike Harcourt and True Leaf CEO Darcy Bomford.

“The company is pleased with the completion of our offerings and the purchase of the land and we can move forward in our pursuit of growing what we hope will be the best quality medicinal cannabis in the world,” Bomford said in a statement. 

The company’s first crop will be required to pass a Health Canada inspection in order for True Leaf to be granted a license to grow medicinal cannabis.

True Leaf purchased the Lumby parcel for $3.3 million and expects to produce 2,500 kilograms of dried cannabis each year.
