Rocky View County (RVC) council approved a land use redesignation to accommodate a new small-scale cannabis processing facility on Township Road 272, about 13 kilometers west of Airdrie, at the December 13 meeting.
The new fully licensed processing facility will be constructed on the existing HyBrix cannabis farm owned by the Lutz and Culpan families. HyBrix already has perimeter security fencing and closed circuit monitoring in keeping with strict federal regulations and does not have any plans to sell any of its products on-site, council was informed.
Co-owner Kristopher Lutz told councilors in his presentation on December 13 that the legal cannabis growing market is experiencing difficult times at the moment, and he hopes the change over to self-processing would open new revenue streams for his farm without having to greatly expand the size of his current operations.
“Right now, there is about seven times more cannabis on the market than people are purchasing,” stated Lutz. “All we are looking to do is just to go full-spectrum, cultivating through sale, so we don’t need to expand our (current) building whatsoever.”
