HYTN Cannabis Inc. has received a license amendment from Health Canada, allowing for the cultivation of cannabis. This license Amendment further strengthens HYTN's regulatory approvals, which include a Standard Processing License, a Research License, and an Amendment for Sale of Cannabis to provincially and territorially authorized retailers.
"While sourcing dry flower and downstream cannabis form factors for our infused cannabis products, we have asked our suppliers to only provide inputs that meet HYTN's exacting specifications," remarked Jason Broome, HYTN Chief Operating Officer. "Consistently finding inputs that meet the standard has been a challenge. However, through that challenge, we have found an opportunity to further advance our mission of elevating the cannabis experience by controlling where it begins, specifically with the cannabis plant itself. Having now secured our cultivation license, our plan is to partner with Okanagan-based cannabis breeders to create a library of exceptional cultivars, which will be held in tissue culture at our Kelowna facility, and to micro-propagate those cultures, providing cultivation partners with hand-selected monocultures, who will grow them out to flower and harvest and cure them under our Quality Management System. Okanagan cannabis breeders and the cultivars they have created are elite and among the best in the world. We look forward to securing quality inputs through our partnerships with such breeders, growers, and processors using our hand-selected cultivars."
"Controlling cannabis cultivars, as well as subsequent cultivation, curing, and processing, is foundational to elevating the cannabis experience for our consumers," noted Elliot McKerr, HYTN Chief Executive Officer. "Securing a cultivation license allows us to build our tissue culture program in our Kelowna facility. We see this as core to entrenching HYTN as a leader of cannabis innovation and ensuring superior and elevated cannabis experiences every time a consumer chooses the HYTN brand."
