As apollogreen opens its Phase 1 facility just off Highway 417 in Vars, near the Amazon Fulfillment Centre, the quickly growing genetics and cannabis micropropagation company is pleased to announce the addition of cannabis social activist, educator and horticulturalist Ed Rosenthal as Global Advisor.
The announcement comes just weeks after Ed was inducted into the Grower Hall of Fame at the Grow Up Awards Gala in Niagara Falls, Ontario and apollogreen receiving Health Canada licenses for standard cultivation, standard processing and federal medical sales
Rosenthal’s contributions are two-fold. His research and study of the cannabis plant has modernized cultivation practices. Politically, as a legalization pioneer and leading expert on growing cannabis who is based in California, Rosenthal has been the subject of highly publicized trials that shifted public opinion in favour of state medical marijuana laws.
Says apollogreen CEO Tyler LeBlanc, “Having Ed join our team provides to us a wealth of knowledge, particularly about his innovative cannabis growing processes and research. As a champion for cannabis legalization for decades his experience is vital to the Canadian market.”
apollogreen is an industrial-scale B2B micropropagation and genetics company that supplies premium quality (safe, lab-tested, and disease-free) cannabis and hemp starter plants to the global market.
Rosenthal says, “What really excites me about the apollogreen group is its pursuit of innovation to increase production while maintaining the highest quality disease-free plants. I believe apollogreen will be recognized as a premier producer in Canada and internationally, which is why I joined the team.”
apollogreen has now opened its 5,000 sq ft Phase 1 facility in Prescott-Russell and has begun the cultivation of plantlets. The Phase 2 building will be started after the next round of investment is complete. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony of Phase 1 October 9th.
