CeresMED, a major medical cannabis and CBD seller in Vermont, has applied for an Act 250 permit to build a $6.6 million facility in Milton to grow, harvest and process cannabis, expanding its current operations.
The project in Catamount Industrial Park includes a greenhouse for starting young plants, which would be moved inside a 48,000-square-foot main building when they mature.

The applicant for the Act 250 permit is High Fidelity Inc., the parent company for CeresMED, formerly Champlain Valley Dispensary.
