Aleafia Health harvests first marijuana crop at Niagara greenhouse

Mobius trimmers

The two Mobius trimmers at Aleafia Health’s new greenhouse site are capable of processing more than 154 pounds of cannabis per hour.

Aleafia Health, a vertically integrated license holder in Ontario, Canada, harvested the first marijuana crop at its new Niagara Greenhouse Facility.

The company secured a cultivation license from Health Canada in March and announced it would commence operations at the 160,000-square-foot greenhouse in June.

At the perpetual-harvest site, potted cannabis sits on benches that move along a track throughout the plant life cycle. After harvest, Aleafia Health employs two stacked Mobius trimmers, pictured above, to process flower. The machines have the ability to trim more than 154 pounds of cannabis per hour.

The greenhouse is equipped with climate-controlled drying chambers and automated blackout curtains.

In addition to its Niagara Greenhouse Facility, Aleafia Health operates 3.7 million square feet of licensed outdoor cultivation space and has a 30,000-square-foot extraction, processing and packaging facility.
