The BC government announced today a first of its kind government-to-government agreement with the Williams Lake First Nations to support the community’s efforts to operate cannabis farm-gate in the province.
The British Columbia government announced today that they will allow “small-scale producers”, including nurseries, the option of delivering cannabis directly to licensed retailers, as well as farm-gate sales, in the coming years.
Getting licensed is only part of the story. Now that Hearst Organic has been licenced for about nine months, Lacelle says he has learned more about some of the challenges of getting cannabis into the supply chain, especially without a processing or sales licence of his own yet.
While most larger licence holders may build out complex and expensive facilities, Sea Dog Farm’s approach is a testament to coming at the process from a much more manageable and affordable scale, while still satisfying the regulatory requirements.
