Zenabis Global (TSX: ZENA) (OTCMKTS:ZBISF) has submitted its site evidence package to Health Canada for the first phase of Site A at Zenabis Langley, a 2.1-million square foot greenhouse facility in Langley, British Columbia, which the company plans to convert to cannabis production upon licensing approval.
Construction of Zenabis Langley’s first 50,000 square foot flower room is substantially complete, as is 49,000 square feet of support space, which includes drying and trimming rooms, processing rooms, a packaging room, offices, change rooms, and storage space.
Whereas, construction of the remaining five flower rooms and additional support space, totaling 380,000 square feet, is expected to complete in August 2019.
The site evidence package submission is expected to be the final step required on the part of Zenabis to obtain a license to cultivate cannabis at Zenabis Langley.
The company expects that the facility will have a licensed annual cultivation capacity of 9,900 kg of dried cannabis once the cultivation license is granted. At that time, Zenabis plans to submit a license amendment for the facility’s remaining five flower rooms representing 86,200 kg of cultivation capacity.
“Zenabis Langley’s design capacity represents more than 70% of the total annual capacity of 131,200 kg of dried cannabis that we plan to reach in the third quarter,” Andrew Grieve, the CEO of Zenabis, said in a statement.
“As the expected final step in Health Canada’s cultivation licensing process, submission of the site evidence package is an important milestone. Upon completion of licensing in Zenabis Langley, together with our licensing achievements in Stellarton and Atholville this year, Zenabis expects to be a significant producer of cannabis in Canada,” Grieve noted.
