“WeedMD is optimizing its two licensed facilities to allow each to focus on a core vertical and to streamline our operations. We are transitioning the Aylmer site to produce a wide range of extracts and concentrates,” said Keith Merker, CEO of WeedMD. “All cultivation has been consolidated to our greenhouse and outdoor Strathroy facility.”
About the Aylmer Extraction Facility
WeedMD is retrofitting its Aylmer operation into a purpose-built cannabis oil extraction facility that will be operational by summer 2019. "We are building on our experience in extract production, having processed oils onsite at Aylmer since June 2017," the team with the company explains. "The site is fully licensed for cannabis oil production and sale. We will have four extraction lines in operation with the ability to process over 200,000 kgs of biomass annually.
We will utilize various extraction methods in order to meet the demands of the market."
According to them, the company will provide formulation capabilities for wholesale and white label manufacturing. "The facility is being built to GxP standards to support compliance for both domestic and international markets. The existing fully-licensed 26,000 sq. ft. facility is located on an expandable four-acre site wholly-owned by WeedMD
We will supply a large quantity of input material for cannabis extraction from the greenhouse and outdoor production from its Strathroy site."
