A North Okanagan cannabis company has filed its final paperwork to Health Canada to obtain a license to cultivate in Lumby.

True Leaf Cannabis submitted its site evidence to Health Canada for True Leaf Campus, the company’s cannabis cultivation and production facility. earlier this year, True Leaf completed construction on the current phase of the campus which includes a two-story, 18,000 sq. ft. central hub for the initial grow area and future laboratory services, whole-plant extraction, and packaging of therapeutic cannabis products.

The facility sits on a 40-acre site of industrial zoned land. With the site evidence package now submitted, the True Leaf Campus is fully compliant and ready to operate. The company expects to receive its cultivation license in the fourth quarter of 2019.

“This site evidence package is a significant milestone for True Leaf towards becoming a licensed producer of cannabis,” said Darcy Bomford, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of True Leaf. “Our team has spent the last few months ensuring this state-of-the-art, purpose-built facility complies with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards. Completing this final step puts True Leaf in an ideal position to benefit from the highly anticipated ‘edibles’ regulations coming to Canada this October.”

The company says it has received full municipal support from the community of  Lumby.
