Valens GroWorks Corp (CSE:VGW) (the “Company” or “Valens”) is pleased to announce wholly-owned subsidiary Valens Agritech Ltd. has successfully harvested its first premium Cannabis crop under its Health Canada Dealer’s License.

Valens’ state-of-the-art growing facility, high standards, and the experience of our Master Growers has produced a robust crop yield with THC content that exceeded expectations, coming in with 24% potential THC compared to an industry average 18.5% for the strain produced.


  • Valens is a company focused on the extraction of Cannabis into oil. Higher THC content produces a greater yield of finished oil products, providing an opportunity to enhance operating margins.
  • Valens has one of the highest extraction processing capacities in Canada for refined, proprietary extraction into 100% pure Cannabis oil. The ability to control our inputs with premium harvested product such as this initial crop is a key component to maximizing our production process going forward.
  • In April Valens AgriTech completed the installation of two additional Vitalis Q-90 CO2 extraction machines, significantly raising the amount of cannabis that can be processed.

Valens CEO, Tyler Robson commented: “I am very proud of the Valens cultivation team. Their experience, care and passion for their work really came through and has resulted in an exceptional product and standards in our facility. Our Master Growers believe they have the ability to continuously exceed industry averages. Our current growing and extraction facility has been renovated and is in the process of being Good Manufacturing Practices certified. Valens Farms, our new cultivation facility currently under way, will benefit greatly from our first harvest as we continually strive to improve in every way.”
