Vancouver, British Columbia - TheNewswire - August 13, 2019 - Gaia Grow Corp. (TSXV:GAIA) (the "Company") or "Gaia") is proud to reiterate that as of April 29, 2019 it has received a confirmation of readiness letter from Health Canada for its indoor medical cannabis cultivation facility, slated to be built on its fully-owned 80 acres of Agriculturally-zoned land in Lamont County, AB.
This confirmation of readiness letter reaffirms that the operational plans for the business are adequate to proceed, and that from Health Canada's perspective, the Company is ready to begin construction.
Regarding this important milestone, Gaia's Chief Executive Officer Frederick Pels commented: "The Confirmation of Readiness letter precedes issuance of a production "Cannabis Nursery License," which is the license subclass required to commence operations on our Lamont Property. This was a long-awaited moment, the culmination of patience, hard work, and dedication from our management team as well as our consultants. Once this facility is built and we obtain our sales licence, we will be able to sell our quality craft grown cannabis to both medical and recreational consumers. In addition, this license will allow us the ability to source and sell other high-quality products from our contacts in the micro-grow craft cannabis sector. This is only the beginning of a ground-breaking year for Gaia and its shareholders and we look forward to keeping everyone informed with our progress."
Further releases about the building selection, construction timelines and budget, as well as final approval of the development permit will be provided upon availability.
