2019 will be a historic year for Canadian farm-grown cannabis and 48North will lead the way. Leveraging years of expertise in cannabis and large-scale agriculture, The Good Farm will, pending Health Canada approval, provide the Canadian legal market with 40,000 kilograms of organic, sun-grown cannabis. Outdoor cannabis grow is more sustainable and cost-effective than indoor or greenhouse production, and will serve as the most effective source for the next generation of cannabis-based products. With distributors and wholesalers across the country looking for ways to supply the growing cannabis market and respond to supply shortages, 48North has an answer. The answer is outdoor grow.

Good Farm
  • Reported to be the first company to apply for an outdoor cultivation licence from Health Canada

  • Will employ 200 local employees this year
  • Critical step in addressing cannabis supply challenges across the country
