The cannabis company Weekend Unlimited Inc (CSE:YOLO), via its subsidiary Northern Lights Organics, has received delivery of its first shipment of two new 3,200 square foot greenhouses.

The new greenhouses, which will boast cannabis-style lighting, pest screening and dehumidification, will be used to expand the production capacity of Northern Lights Organics farm, which spans over 600 acres.

It is expected that the construction of the new greenhouses, which will take about eight weeks, will be completed during January of 2019. Subsequent shipments of greenhouses are scheduled for mid-December.

“The new greenhouses will be used to expand the production capacity of the organic farm; and for year-round growing of hemp for high CBD (cannabidiol) seeds and seedlings,” said Cody Corrubia, president and CEO of Weekend Unlimited in a statement.

“The hemp seeds and seedlings will be moved from the greenhouses to the outdoor fields,” Corrubia added.

Art Halleran, founder and president of Northern Lights Organics, was just as bullish that the new greenhouses would boost crop yields.

“Year-round growing will be possible using the greenhouse, even during the winter season,” Halleran noted in a statement.

“Starting outdoor crops using indoor grown starter plants is anticipated to have a significant positive effect on ultimate yields. It is anticipated to further allow us to create our own genetics over the long term,” he added.

The high CBD hemp set to be grown during 2019 in the greenhouses will be utilizing a third-party breeder’s or research license.

Northern Lights is striving to become one of Canada’s first mixed CBD hemp and cannabis farms and is producing certified organic products. The company has submitted an application under Canada’s Cannabis Act for an indoor hybrid cannabis facility for its farm.
