Jesse Denton, Kief Cannabis Company CEO

“The facility is now complete. All our operational rooms are ready to go”

At the beginning of last year, Canadian cannabis producer Kief Cannabis Co received their confirmation of readiness letter by Health Canada. After that, construction works proceeded fast in order to get the facility ready for the receipt of the cultivation licenses. Halfway through January 2020, the company finally received not only its cultivation license, but also the processing and medical sale licenses. “We applied for three licenses, and it was very satisfying that we received all three of them,” Jesse Denton, Kief Cannabis CEO, explains. “The facility is now complete. All our operational rooms are ready to go.”

Plants are on site
Indeed, Kief Cannabis immediately commenced cultivation. “The plants are on site. In a couple of weeks, they will enter the flower stage. We grow 30 different unique strains and exotic varieties. We spent years selecting the varieties, thus we can now count on a great bulk of genetics.”

The road to get their licenses wasn’t free of obstacles. “Like everything in life, you always stumble upon a wall,” Jesse says. “For starters, the construction was delayed as there are things that Health Canada wants to see. However, the Health Canada agent following us was really dedicated, and our experience with them was great. By following their guidelines, we were able to achieve everything that we planned.”


Working with Health Canada

When it comes to producing cannabis for the medical market, it is of the utmost important to demonstrate that a grower is able to live up to the very high pharma standards. “It is crucial to pay attention to the smallest details,” Jesse points out. “Many things can easily be overlooked. This is why you have to make sure that you have proper SOPs that align with the highest standards. To put it bluntly, you need to be as thorough as possible with the package. It is just a matter of following the rules, at the end of the day. At the same time, it is crucial to be flexible and be able to jump from one thing to another in order to address everything in time. And this is exactly how we were able to achieve all the goals that we set for ourselves, in terms of licenses.”

Jesse remarks that in the future of Kief Cannabis, there will also be exports. “We plan to export, and thus we want to get the EU-GMP certification, which would allow us to enter the European market. To prepare for that, we are planning to scale up our operation, adding 5,000 sq.ft. and six additional grow rooms. Right now, we have another round of investments coming live to ensure that we can proceed with our plans.”
