Cannabis facility heads to New York
Atlas Growers Ltd. is preparing to participate in a four-day marketing conference in New York starting Oct. 1.
The medical cannabis producers will be the only cannabis company participating in the globally recognized event called Advertising Week.
Marketing, branding, advertising and technology companies from across the world will participate in the event, which offers opportunities to learn and network.
Atlas Growers Inc. is a privately owned medical cannabis facility located in Lac Ste. Anne County, northwest of Edmonton. Jim Hole, owner of Hole’s Greenhouse in St. Albert, is consulting as the director of plant health and cultivation for the company.
The company recently submitted its final submission to Health Canada, the last step in becoming a federally licensed producer of medical cannabis.
Atlas Growers is also completing the first stage of its production facility, and has development permits for up to one million square feet of cultivation space.
The company is expected to obtain its sales licence by the end of the year.
