Aurora Cannabis received a cultivation license from Health Canada for its 40,000-square-foot indoor facility in Pointe-Claire, making it only the second company to have a medical marijuana production license in Quebec.
An executive told Marijuana Business Daily that production from the facility – called “Aurora Vie” – will be used to meet local and global MMJ demand, starting with Germany and the European Union.
Here’s what you need to know about Aurora Vie:
- The facility has a projected cultivation capacity of approximately 4,000 kilograms of cannabis per year.
- The company anticipates its first harvest in early 2018.
- The medical cannabis will be distributed in Germany through Pedanios, its wholly owned subsidiary.
- Aurora purchased the facility in April for 7 million Canadian dollars ($5.4 million). Since then, Aurora has put another CA$3 million into the facility to meet EU manufacturing standards.
