While it may appear as if Emerald Health Therapeutics Inc (OTCMKTS:EMHTF) has been a laggard play in the cannabis space over recent months, we would highlight the stock’s recent resilience, including the fact that it is up over 20% in the last 10 months and trading well in positive territory for the year to date. To make matters more interesting, the company just announced that its 50%-owned joint venture for large-scale, low-cost, high-quality cannabis production, Pure Sunfarms, has received a Standard Processing License from Health Canada for its 1.1 million square foot Delta 3 greenhouse facility.
According to the release, “The Processing License permits Pure Sunfarms to extract and process cannabis at its Delta 3 facility, which will enable the development and manufacture of products derived from cannabis, including oils, other concentrates, and edibles. Pure Sunfarms will require an additional amendment to its sales license to sell cannabis oil, which it expects to be distributing to provincial/territorial distributors and private retailers by the fourth quarter of this year.”
