Kelowna, BC – January 30, 2019 – GTEC Holdings Ltd. (TSXV: GTEC) (OTC: GGTTF) (FRA: 1BUP) (“GTEC” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the completion of its initial phase construction at its purpose-built indoor cultivation facility, Tumbleweed Farms.
Tumbleweed Farms is the first of multiple purpose-built indoor facilities that GTEC is in the process of building in order to produce its ultra-premium flower. The Company’s initial planned cultivation footprint is expected to span a total of 120,000 square feet, across three Provinces, with the anticipation of reaching an estimated annual output of 14,000 kg of indoor flower by Q3 of 2019.
“We are extremely proud of the work that our operations team has put in over the duration of this process,” said Norton Singhavon, Founder, Chairman & CEO of GTEC. “Our team is excited to expand existing production of our ultra-premium indoor flower, with our unique and exotic genetics for the Canadian medical and adult-use markets.”
The Company is in the final stages of compiling its Video Evidence Package, with the expectation of its final submission into Health Canada by next week. Once Health Canada confirms that the requirements of the Cannabis Act and Regulations have been met, a Standard Cultivation license will be issued and the Company will immediately commence cultivation.
GTEC’s initial harvests from Alberta Craft Cannabis are currently available to registered medical patients, under its flagship medical brand GreenTec TM, exclusively at Namaste’s (TSXV: N) (FRANKFURT: M5BQ) (OTCMKTS: NXTTF) CannMart (www.cannmart.com).
Tumbleweed Farms’ initial phase consists of 10,000 square feet for indoor cultivation, strategically located in Chase BC, about 8kms from the Trans-Canada Highway and situated just outside of the Kamloops City limits. The property sits on 23 acres of land with significant future expansion capabilities and access to an on-site gravity fed natural artesian well.
