The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd (TSE:TGOD) (OTCMKTS:TGODF) announced Tuesday that it has obtained approval from Health Canada to expand operations into its new hybrid greenhouse in Hamilton, Ontario. 

The 123,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility will serve to increase TGOD's premium organic cannabis production as it expands its sales in Canada.

The hybrid greenhouse is the result of years of research and development, the Ontario-based company said in a statement.

It is outfitted with cutting-edge climate control systems and water-recapture systems, as well as LED lighting, and it combines the latest technologies such as living soil and natural sunlight.

And the organic growing facility has a much better environmental footprint and lower waste than traditional large-scale cannabis growing operations, TGOD said.

"We are thrilled to start using this purpose-built hybrid greenhouse as we ramp up our production of premium organic cannabis, an underserved segment of the market," said CEO Brian Athaide.

"Our team pioneered the concept of growing organic cannabis at scale; this hybrid greenhouse has been artfully designed for organic cultivation, allowing us to reliably produce clean, safe and non-irradiated cannabis."

The new facility is the third phase of TGOD's Hamilton site, measuring 166,000 square feet with an annual production capacity of 17,500 kilograms of premium organic cannabis.

In line with its commitment to sustainability, TGOD aims to have the building LEED (leadership in energy and environmental design) certified.

The company is also seeking an eGMP certification for the facility to allow for global exports.
