AgraFlora Organics International Inc. has announced it has been awarded a license from Health Canada, under the industrial hemp regulations of the Cannabis Act, for its flagship 2.2-million-square-foot Delta Greenhouse Complex.
AgraFlora has a partnership with the huge Houweling Nurseries complex on 64th Street.
The retrofit of the Houweling greenhouse is taking place over several phases. The 49-acre facility will be the second largest cannabis greenhouse facility under glass in Canada among those that are currently built. The biggest is an Ontario facility owned by Canopy Growth Corp., the world’s largest cannabis company. Canopy also has a separate large-scale greenhouse operation on Hornby Drive in East Delta.
The Houweling operation will also be connected to an array of products, such as CBD-infused pain relief creams and roll-ons, organic cosmetics, shampoos and conditioners, as well as such edible snacks as gummies.
