Delta 9 Cannabis has completed its final services milestone under an agreement with another Micro Cultivation partner, Oliver Acres Ltd., (operating as “Cypress Craft”). Cypress Craft is an arms length third party in which the Company has no ownership control or interest.
"As one of the Company’s micro cultivation partners, Cypress Craft, entered into a Strategic Cooperation Agreement (“SCA”) with Delta 9 whereby Delta 9 provides services relating to the cannabis production facility design and construction, development of standard operating procedures and sanitation programs, consulting on Health Canada licensing, and other services supporting the acquisition of the Health Canada license," the team with the company explains. "On April 3, 2020, Cypress Craft confirmed it has reached its final milestone under the SCA and has been granted a cannabis micro cultivation license from Health Canada (the “Health Canada License”)."
“We are delighted that Cypress Craft has received a Health Canada Licence for their facility, using our proprietary and turn-key "Grow Pod" systems” and thrilled that they are one of the first rural farmers to become a micro cultivator in Manitoba,” said John Arbuthnot, Founder and CEO of Delta 9.
The Company's cannabis production methodology is based around a modular, scalable, and stackable production unit called a "Grow Pod", which are retrofitted standard 40-foot shipping containers. Cypress Craft’s facility has been designed and built using this turn-key and state of the art Grow Pod system. Once cultivation begins, Delta 9 plans to purchase premium quality cannabis products from Cypress Craft for distribution through the Company's established distribution network, and through Delta 9's branded retail stores.
“I would like to thank Delta 9 for providing us with a turn-key platform to grow cannabis and for their continued support as we begin production," said Doug Oliver, Founder. "I look forward to being a part of this new industry producing small-batch, passionately grown, craft cannabis. You will find our premium Cypress Craft products at Delta 9 retail locations soon!”
The Oliver’s operate a 4th generation farm and have a (4,560) square foot micro cultivation facility, located in the rural municipality of North Cypress, Manitoba. Doug Oliver and sons Brett and Bryce Oliver are experienced farmers and became interested in growing cannabis commercially to broaden their crop output and diversify their farming operation.
