FSD Pharma Inc. (CSE:HUGE,OTCQB:FSDDF,FRA:OK9) subsidiary FV Pharma has cut the ribbon for a historic building in Cobourg, Ontario that will house the city’s first cannabis dispensary. The building is located next to the former Kraft plant, where FV Pharma is developing its cultivation and processing facility. Company executives were joined by Cobourg Mayor Gil Brocanier as well as other local dignitaries.
In a recent article on the company’s upcoming dispensary, FV Pharma CEO Thomas Fairfull was quoted saying that the dispensary should be up and running in six to eight weeks. “The building is well over 100 years old and I think it is an important heritage site for Cobourg. It’s important for our company to support historical things in the town,” he said.
The building holds a wealth of history for the city, which originally produced Certo pectin. Brocanier himself even worked at the facility at one point in his career.
To him, the history of the building as a focus point of the community is what makes this transition so impactful. “That makes it really important and the fact that we’re going to have a dispensary here right on site, that will be accessible to the people in this whole area, is just a bonus,” Brocanier said. “We’re expecting great things from the medical marijuana cultivation, as well as the products that they are going to have available here.”
