Cannabis Production and Processing

The recent legalization of cannabis, along with the Brooks Newell Region's welcoming business-minded community and local government, establishes the region as a top destination for cannabis production and processing.


Climate and Environment

This area couldn’t be more perfectly suited for the cannabis industry – the dry climate, well-drained soils, copious sunlight hours, and direct access to an abundant volume of water for irrigation and processing make the Brooks Newell Region an easy choice.

Southern Alberta is a well-established leader in industrial hemp production, with area farmers accounting for as much as 40% of the national crop.

Whole-plant Harvesting

Health Canada also recently approved the harvest of industrial hemp flower, leaf, and bud material in addition to seed and fiber. This decision to allow whole-plant harvesting strengthens Canada’s position as a leader in the fast-growing cannabinoid space.
