Another cannabis grower in the Ottawa area has been given a licence by Health Canada.
Fleurish Cannabis Inc., which has set up shop in Kemptville, plans to market its products to women.
The company has a 20,000 square foot facility on eight acres of land that will house both the growing area and a laboratory for research and development.
Once the plant is fully operational, it will produce about 1,400 kilograms of cannabis a year, according to the company.
The company founder, Renée Ellison, is a former Health Canada employee who worked with the team that developed federal regulations for medical marijuana that opened up the industry to private businesses.
