TORONTO and DENVER, July 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MJardin Group, Inc. (“MJardin” or “the Company”) (CSE: MJAR) (OTCQX: MJARF), a leader in premium cannabis production, today released, with its joint-venture partner the Chippewas of Rama First Nation (51%), designs of their 94,650 sq. ft. cannabis campus to be located in the community of Rama, Ontario.
The campus will be a combination of indoor/greenhouse cultivation with interior space of 62,400 sq. ft containing six cultivation rooms for production of high-end flower, all necessary cultivation support spaces, a 5,500 sq. ft GMP certified extraction facility, a cannabis education centre and a retail dispensary. In addition, two greenhouses equaling 32,250 sq. ft. will be dedicated to producing extractable biomass.
The combination design allows the facility to produce diverse products with both high-end flower and extraction, use the best production methods for each type of product, and allow for flexibility as the market demands. The combination facility is expected to be complete third quarter 2020, produce a run-rate of 3,800 kg of high-quality dried flower, 675 kg of bulk oil and employ 75-100 people.
