Canada: Inside the world’s largest legal medical marijuana greenhouse

Less than an hour from Buffalo, a Canadian company is shaping what could be the future of medical marijuana. Park Lane Farms in Niagara-on-the-Lake operates a 350,000-square-foot greenhouse.

President Angus Footman said, “This is the largest legal medical marijuana facility in the world once we expand into the entire facility.”

The facility is blanketed in security systems and everything from sanitation to production is tightly regulated. Footman explained, “Every single plant has an individual tag so we track them from birth to harvest.”

The farm received its license earlier this month and it’s already growing 17 different strains of medical marijuana.

It’s head grower said, “We bring them in as cuttings and starter plants, we transplant them and then we are going to grow them onto finishing flower height.”

It’s a process that has never been legally done before and with so much space, they’re pioneers for a growing industry.

“There’s no science that’s ever been done on this crop that’s reliable. There’s no ‘University of Medical Marijuana’ that you can go to or we can hire people from, so everything we are doing here is new science for everyone,” said Footman.

This is a controversial crop, but these growers believe what they’re doing will change perceptions.
