The Flowr Corporation (TSX.V: FLWR), through its subsidiary The Flowr Group (Okanagan) Inc., this morning reported that it successfully completed the initial delivery of its premium cannabis products to the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Board (“BCLDB”). FLWR expects to achieve delivery of the total initial purchase order by October 17, 2018, just in time for the national legalization of adult recreational-use cannabis in Canada. “This is an exciting time for everyone in the cannabis industry in British Columbia as well as consumers in the Province. We’re proud to carry on the Okanagan’s tradition of excellence in cultivation and work with our partners at the BCLDB to provide the outstanding cannabis experience consumers will want beginning on day one of adult-use legalization,” The Flowr Corporation Co-Founder and President Tom Flow stated in the news release.
Additionally, Flowr and Hawthorne Canada Limited recently broke ground on the construction of a research and development (“R&D”) facility located on the cultivation campus Flowr is constructing in Kelowna. The construction is being funded by Hawthorne Canada, a subsidiary of Hawthorne Gardening Company, which is a subsidiary of The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (NYSE: SMG). The 50,000-square-foot facility will be comprised of laboratories, indoor and greenhouse grow suites, training areas and genetics breeding areas. Upon the competition of the facility, anticipated for the summer of 2019, Flowr will develop and test Hawthorne cultivation systems including lights, fertilization and irrigation systems. The company also plans to utilize the facility to research genetics and cultivation data analytic systems.
