CAN (BC): West Kootnay-based growers hope new facility will solve industry troubles

Growers, processors and cannabis marketers all say a new business in the south Slocan Valley will be a “game changer” for the cannabis industry in the West Kootenay.

About 50 people showed up for an open house a week in December at Antidote Processing Inc., a new facility at the junction of Highways 6 and 3A in the South Slocan Valley.

“Antidote is really about highlighting craft cultivators, and our mission is to be completely dedicated to the success of small craft producers in the region,” says Antidote CEO Shannon Ross. “Our success is built on the success of all the craft producers in this region.”

Before the Dec. 17 open house, Ross gave tours of the facility – a non-descript warehouse they’ve been completely renovating to federal security and processing standards at a cost of $1.2 million to date.
