Newfoundlanders who want to grow their own cannabis will soon have access to one of Canada’s first legal, over-the-counter sources of cannabis clones.

West River Cannabis, near the West River of Pictou in Nova Scotia, sits across from his father’s nursery, West River Greenhouses. Although just licensed in April, he hopes to soon begin selling cannabis clones to commercial growers and eventually even the consumer market.
The second cannabis nursery licensed in Canada, Mother Labs Inc. has been turning out clones from their genetic bank of about 150 cultivars to dozens of cannabis growers, from large scale LPs to smaller micro cultivation licence holders.
Wilson says he’s a plant enthusiast in general and became more aware of the cannabis industry when he worked as an healthcare advisor to Bedrocan in 2014, based on his experience in the pharmaceutical industry and his love for plants.
