Emerald Health Therapeutics, Inc. is a Canadian licensed producer of cannabis. Its 50%-owned Pure Sunfarms joint venture in BC is licensed to cultivate cannabis in 1.03M square feet of its first 1.1 million square foot greenhouse, the capacity of which is estimated to exceed 75,000 kg of cannabis annually. This facility has been scaling up production over the last four quarters and is expected to be fully planted in April 2019. Emerald’s Verdélite operation in Québec is completing the build-out of its 88,000 square feet indoor cultivation facility and scaling up its high quality production. Emerald has secured over 500 acres of hemp harvest in 2018 and has contracted for approximately 1000 acres in 2019 to 2022, with the objective of extracting low-cost cannabidiol from the hemp. Emerald’s team is highly experienced in life sciences, product development, large-scale agri-business, and marketing, and is focused on developing proprietary, value-added cannabis products for medical and adult-use customers.
