Saskatchewan vertical farm, Ecobain Naturals, announced a transition from growing food product to cannabis cultivation. With the change, the company has rebranded to Mother Labs Inc. Servicing the cannabis industry throughout Canada, Mother Labs will grow and supply clean living plants for both local and national distributors.
Ecobain sells and roots living products despite geographical limitations and extreme seasonal variations. Their environmentally sustainable facility located in Saskatoon utilizes LED lighting and hydroponic growing to minimize their carbon footprint and expend less energy, allowing for large quantities of growth with a minimal environmental impact. This highly controlled facility includes environmental UV sterilization and HVAC systems for a cleaner product.
By applying the techniques that brought them success as food farmers, Mother Labs will use tissue culture micropropagation to harness exacting DNA through germplasm to clone their cannabis. Using biotechnology to raise healthier plants, the outcome is genetically specific, high quality, clean plants that are robust and reliable for every sector of the cannabis industry.
Roberta Bain, COO, “Our focus has and always will be sustainability, local products, and benefiting communities. Food security remains a priority which is an element of culture we wish to affect again in the future.”
Mother Labs is currently taking cannabis orders for 2019.
