LGC Capital (TSXV:LG) shared an update with shareholders on the construction of its Tricho-Med’s cannabis growing facility in Brownsburg, Quebec.

As quoted in the press release:

Tricho-Med Expansion Plan

Tricho-Med has acquired 18 acres of additional land in close proximity to its site in Brownsburg, Quebec. The company now has the potential for a five-fold increase to its production capacity, compared to its original planned capacity at the time of the agreement with LGC in January 2018. This increase is further supported by the past purchase of approximately 20 acres of land adjacent to the facility currently under construction.

Tricho-Med plans to aggressively expand with a second facility beside its initial 34,000 square foot indoor growing operation, and it will be approximately 600,000 square feet. It will be a fully enclosed one-level building with potential for 475,000 square feet of flowering space. The combined facilities will have the potential to grow over 60,000 [kilograms] equivalent per year of dry cannabis and extracted products, based on actual industry observed yields of 30 grams per square foot per cycle when using the same production methods as Tricho-Med. All Tricho-Med products will be produced to strict Health Canada and EU-GMP standards for the domestic and international medical cannabis markets.
