48North Invites Canadians Behind the Scenes of Outdoor Cultivation

TORONTO , June 17, 2019 /CNW/ - 48North Cannabis Corp. ("48North" or the "Company") (NRTH.V) is inviting Canadians to "See the Good" as it launches a first-of-its kind video series dedicated to the cultivation of outdoor, sun-grown cannabis.

48North's Good Farm, which is located in Brant County and received one of the first outdoor cannabis licences in Canada , is poised to produce 40,000 kilograms of dried cannabis this year from 100 acres (3.7 million square feet of cultivation space) of organic farm space, making it one of the largest licensed cannabis operations in the world.

With planting already underway, Good Farm will rely on both established agricultural practices and innovative cannabis production techniques to ensure this groundbreaking commitment is a success.

To bring Canadians along on this journey, 48North is hosting a bi-weekly web series on Good Farm. The series, entitled, "See the Good" focuses on the challenges, opportunities and lessons learned on the road from seed-to-sale. Specifically, viewers will be walked through never-been-seen footage that provides insights on:

  • Outdoor cannabis cultivation and preservation practices;
  • The sophisticated security system needed to preserve and protect such an expansive, open facility;
  • The diverse local workforce and community imprint of Good Farm in Brant County; and,
  • The way that organic, sun-grown cannabis will contribute to improved experiences with next generation cannabis products.


"Cannabis is a plant that was meant to be grown outdoors," said Jeannette VanderMarel , co-CEO of 48North. "As we literally bring cannabis production into the open, we see an incredible opportunity, and responsibility, to open up the conversation around cultivation and shine a light on the practices we're using to get to market."

"Good Farm represents one of the first licensed outdoor cannabis operations in the country, but we know that it won't be the last," added Alison Gordon , co-CEO of 48North. "That's why we want to invite our consumers, investors and neighbours alongside us for this historic journey – to understand the ups and downs of this groundbreaking production practice. The future is outdoor grow."

48North has also recently signed supply agreements for cannabis from its Good Farm and other licensed production facilities, including:

  • An historic outdoor cannabis agreement with the société québécoise du cannabis for 1,200 kg of dried cannabis;
  • A supply agreement with the AGLC for 2,460 kilograms of dried cannabis; and
  • A supply agreement with the Ontario Cannabis Store for 1,200 kilograms of dried cannabis.


Good Farm has a number of strategic advantages, including: ultra-low-cost cannabis, environment-friendly and energy-efficient production, in addition the farm provides a source of relief to the national shortage of recreational cannabis.
