Escapes wind up in the darndest places

Since camping is not an option right now, I was out riding my e-bike the other day and rolled past a vintage Escape 15 in an RV storage lot right next to Aurora's new 31,500 square foot "cannabis innovation centre."

When it opens, the company will use the greenhouse and research lab to breed cannabis plants for quicker maturity, maximum yields, and minimal losses to pests and disease--in short, to make the cultivation of recreational and medicinal cannabis more profitable. The building will not be open to the public, no production for sale will occur on the site, and no GMO techniques will be used.

One of the two principals is a local fellow who got a PhD in chemistry and did agricultural research for the federal government for years, then made a quick fortune in a cannabis testing business when it was first legalized in Canada.

The cannabis facility is situated between a Canadian Forces airbase and the Comox International Airport. Let the jokes about getting high begin!

I thought the high from legalizing marijuana was waning and investors were losing their shirts, facilities closing.

Hi Glenn
Do you mean to tell me their dreams are going up in smoke?

Winners and losers

A friend who is in the business said the current shakedown was expected. The profitablity of the research operation will depend on how much money their plants can save producers. Ultimately, he expects that medicial cannabis with high CBD levels will be more in demand and profitable recreational weed with high THC levels.
