Viridis Cannabis Has Officially Received a Cannabis Processing and Cultivation License

Viridis Cannabis Has Officially Received a Cannabis Processing and Cultivation License

On February 1st, 2019, Viridis Natural Health Products (Viridis Cannabis) officially received a Cannabis Act Processing and Cultivation license from Health Canada to grow cannabis for sale for the Canadian market at its newly-completed facility located in Edmonton, Alberta.

Viridis is the first company to receive a Cannabis Cultivation license in Alberta post legalization on October 17, 2018 and is now the 10th Licensed Producer in Alberta.

The license award follows Viridis’ construction of an indoor secure growing, processing and storage facility, known as Edmonton West.

The Site is approximately 8,000 square feet in total and Viridis has already announced plans to expand this production facility to 19,000 square feet in the adjacent industrial bays, subject to Health Canada approval.

This Phase 2 will incorporate a “Vertical Grow System” which will double the canopy area resulting in projections for up to 7 million grams of dried flower by 2021. Here are the items we currently have in production (being 'gardened'). 

Northern Lights


Northern Lights stands among the most famous strains of all time, a pure indica cherished for its fast flowering, resinous buds and resilience during growth. An inbred descendant of original Afghani landrace strains. This strain has a pungently sweet earthy flavor with hints of citrus. Spicy aromas radiate from the crystal-coated buds, which sometimes reveal themselves in hues of purple. Northern Lights has given rise to famous hybrids like Shiva Skunk and Super Silver Haze.

White Widow

White Widow is a hybrid strain, a cross between a Brazilian sativa landrace and a resin-heavy South Indian indica. An infamous name, as it has blessed every Dutch coffee shop menu since its birth in the 1990s. This strain gets its name from the fact that it is literally blanketed in white crystals. When it comes to smell, you can expect a citrus and peppery scent that is accompanied by a lemony aftertaste. White Widow’s genetics have given rise to many other legends like White Russian, White Rhino, and Blue Widow.
