Aleafia Health (AH) has largely completed planting across 86 acres at its outdoor cultivation facility in Port Perry, Ont.

The milestone was achieved a month earlier than the 2020 outdoor season, which yielded 31,200 kgs of dried flower, at a cost to harvest of $0.10 per gram.

“Through the tremendous diligence and hard work of our operations team, we are poised to take another major step forward this year in outdoor cultivation. With all infrastructure completed and licences secured last year, Port Perry has become a highly advanced, year-round operation that we expect to deliver major improvements in our total yield,” said Aleafia Health CEO Geoffrey Benic.

“Our low-cost cultivation advantage at scale has allowed us to enter the dried flower market in a meaningful way with the successful launch of our everyday cannabis brand Divvy. Likewise, it provides consistent input materials for our growing portfolio of differentiated cannabis derivative products.”

Major improvements to the facility were made last year, including site-wide underground irrigation and the construction and licencing of an additional 30,000 sq. ft. of licensed drying and storage buildings. Propagation commenced in November 2020, which resulted in plants that were significantly more mature relative to previous years.

The 2021 harvest will feature the company’s signature THC, CBD and balanced cultivars, along with a number of new THC-dominant strains which were selected following research and development cultivation trials last year.

Aleafia Health is a federally licensed Canadian cannabis company offering cannabis health and wellness services and products in Canada and with sales and operations in Australia and Germany. The company operates medical clinics, education centres and production facilities for the production and sale of cannabis.

Aleafia Health owns four significant licensed cannabis production facilities, including the first large-scale, legal outdoor cultivation facility in Canadian history.

Aleafia Health Inc. (AH) opened trading at C$0.42 per share.
