How it's made
Explore the facilities behind our state-of-the-art cannabis production.
Emerald Health Therapeutics produces cannabis at Pure Sunfarms JV with Village Farms, as part of a 50-50 joint venture. The result of this partnership is a state-of-the-art, 1.1 million-square-foot, single-site greenhouse – the only greenhouse in Canada to produce cannabis year-round.
When Pure Sunfarms was established in 2017, Village Farms was already a trusted local employer and neighbour in Delta, British Columbia. Located on 50 acres in one of the best growing climates in North America, Pure Sunfarms has 17 individual grow rooms, each with more than 50,000 square feet. The greenhouse needs supplemental lighting for only half the year, relying mostly on sunlight.
Pure Sunfarms is optimized for year-round harvesting, and will produce more than 85 harvests per year. Its automated process line – one of the first of its kind – has the capability to harvest, trim, dry and package cannabis. Pure Sunfarms has the potential to expand to 4.8 million square feet, which would make it the largest cannabis cultivation site in the world.
Emerald Health also recently acquired Agro-Biotech, a Licensed Producer in Saint-Eustache, Québec. The 75,000-square-foot indoor facility will supply unique, high-quality cannabis products for the Québecois and eastern Canadian markets, where more than half of Canada’s population resides.
Health Canada has approved a modular expansion project, on a 32-acre site in Metro-Vancouver, for a 500,000-square-foot hybrid indoor and greenhouse growing space, with expansion potential to one million square feet. This facility could also house extraction and other processing capabilities as we pursue value-added downstream product development.
