Alberta’s Palliser region is Western Canada’s hemp and cannabis capital. Area hemp farmers grow 40% of the national crop, the region is home to approximately two-thirds of Canada’s irrigated land, and the town of Redcliff is home to nearly half of Alberta’s total greenhouse square footage.
Medicine Hat is home to Aurora Cannabis, Folium Biosciences, and Alberta’s highest per capita number of retail cannabis shops. Brooks and Bow Island are both destinations for hemp extraction, cannabis cultivation, and other value-added activities with a number of projects underway. Cannabis projects are also slated for the town of Bassano and expect to break ground in 2019.
With an abundance of cultivation capacity, expertise, and business-friendly communities, the Palliser region is Western Canada’s best location for your next hemp or cannabis processing facility.
