They don’t consider themselves a boutique Delta operation, but rather a bigger craft cannabis grower focusing on the higher end of the market.

That’s what Jesse McConnell, co-founder and CEO of Rubicon Organics, says about his product which is being grown at a 125,000-square-foot former vegetable greenhouse on 104th St. in East Ladner.
