LS: Company starts cannabis facility construction in Lesotho

Canada-based global cannabis company White Sheep Corp. has broken ground on its cannabis facility in Lesotho, Africa.

The company purchased 9.7 hectares of real estate in Masianokeng, along a road just outside the capital city of Maseru, where it is constructing a 300,000-sq.-ft. cannabis production facility to grow medical marijuana and process it into high concentration oils.

The facility in Lesotho is a GACP and EU-GMP certified, steel-paneled greenhouse that is optimal for prime growing conditions and increased security and will feature hydroponics and a customized heating and cooling system to deliver quality crops.

White Sheep is pushing to complete the first part of Phase One (approximately 100,000 sq.ft.) in Q4 of 2019, which would generate cannabis crops in Q1 of 2020.

Once the 300,000 sq ft is fully operational, the facility is projected to produce approximately 58,200 kgs of cannabis per year.  White Sheep’s vision is to expand the facility to 1,000,000 sq. ft once commercial production is achieved.
