The freshly planted cannabis, which will be a fall harvest, lies in a field adjacent to the company’s modern greenhouse. WeedMD is one of only a few licensed producers currently entering its second year of outdoor operations.

The company has also announced progress in other areas, including its CX Industries extraction hub. WeedMD stated that the hub in Aylmer is now fully operational and extracting biomass into new cannabis formats.
