California Awards TransCanna Rare License to Process Third-Party Cannabis
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - April 28, 2021) - TransCanna Holdings Inc. (CSE: TCAN) (FSE: TH8) ("TransCanna" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the State of California has awarded its Daly Facility a coveted Processor License.
The License is rare - only 152 of its kind were issued last year, compared to 6,083 Cultivation and Nursery Licenses.
"The Processor License opens up a massive new revenue stream - allowing us to trim, dry, cure, grade, package and label cannabis for third-party growers state-wide," said Bob Blink, CEO for TransCanna. The vast majority of growers only hold Cultivation Licenses, which allow processing activities solely for cannabis they produce on-site.
"This License is significant because it opens us up to serve 3rd party growers at the earliest stage of the supply chain - raw cannabis flower. Following processing services we can offer them additional services like white labelling, packaging, storage, and wholesaling and distribution to retailers," said Mr. Blink.
"Coupled with our Distribution License, this Processor License enables us to realize our vision of becoming the largest scale processing and distribution operation in the region," he said.
The Daly Facility is strategically positioned as a hub between the largest cannabis producing regions in the state to the north and the largest consumer population in the world in the Greater Los Angeles Area to the south.
The new License follows the Company's recent announcement of the receipt of a $2M construction loan that is funding the construction of 40,000 square feet of cultivation space, a 16,000 square foot distribution and inventory storage, area and a 12,000 square foot processing and packaging facility.
TransCanna Holdings Inc. is a California-based, Canadian-listed company building cannabis-focused brands for the California lifestyle, through its wholly-owned California subsidiaries.
TransCanna's wholly owned subsidiary Lyfted Farms is California's authentic cannabis brand whose pioneering spirit has been continuously providing the finest cannabis flower genetics and cultivation methods since 1984. The Lyfted Farms brand of exclusive cannabis flower is sold at premium retailers throughout the state. With its new cultivation facility in Daly, California, the company is now poised to become one of the largest and most efficient vertically integrated cannabis companies in the California market.
