“Our recently announced outdoor production expansion combined with this processing license positions WeedMD with the ability to fully execute on its plans to scale up our downstream capacity in packaging and distribution,” said Keith Merker, CEO of WeedMD in a statement.

“This is another critical milestone that will enable WeedMD to address the current supply bottlenecks being experienced across the Canadian cannabis industry.”

The cannabis company is planning to increase its total yield to more than 150,000 kilograms of greenhouse and outdoor cultivation by 2020. It has applied to Health Canada to expand its Strathroy grow operation to include nearly 100 acres of outdoor cultivation, with an initial 25 acres to come online in 2019.

Shares of WeedMD were trading at C$1.81 in Canada and at US$1.36 in the US on Monday afternoon.
