About Broken Coast Cannabis
Broken Coast is a privately-owned, licensed producer of medical cannabis-based in Vancouver Island, British Colombia founded in 2014. Here, they run a 12,000 square foot facility that produces over six different strains of cannabis with more in development in 14 growing rooms. Broken Coast received its first operational license on March 14, 2014, under the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) Canada. They recently renewed their license for an 18-month period, indicating Health Canada’s confidence in the firm’s cleantech production methods.
On May 15, 2017, Broken Coast entered into a partnership with Cannabis Wheaton Income Corp. (CW) whereby CW will help BCC develop new facilities which will boost its production capacity to 100,000 sq. ft. CW invests in cannabis companies that are either licensed or awaiting approval from Health Canada and it does not produce cannabis itself.

Broken Coast operates a 12,000 sq. ft. facility in Ladysmith, British Colombia where they have managed to achieve an industry-leading ratio of cost against yield and grade. The facilities have a production capacity of 2,000kg of dried cannabis per year.
