“We are pleased to announce the completion of an extensive and rigorous commissioning program that has proven our processes and culminated in the commencement of initial processing operations.

Adastra diligently adhered to Provincial and Federal guidance to ensure we implemented all necessary protocols to maintain our schedule for initial equipment commissioning and operational commencement. We remain committed to our first priority – the health and safety of our employees and community.” – Andy Hale, CEO
The Adastra commissioning program required extensive retooling due to COVID-19 travel restrictions and utilized remote video conferencing coupled with on-site subject matter expert consultants to ensure the best possible start to initial operations. Adastra is extremely pleased with the successful demonstration of all facets of its process from biomass intake through to the production of high-quality cannabis distillate.
Adastra was issued a Standard Processing Licence from Health Canada on March 13, 2020. Under the terms of Adastra’s Standard Processing Licence, Adastra will be able to possess and produce cannabis, by means other than cultivating it, and will sell cannabis in accordance with the Cannabis Regulations. The issuance of a Standard Processor Licence will permit Adastra to execute its business plan and produce cannabis extracts and formulated products. Adastra is initially capable of processing approximately 10,000 grams of dried cannabis every hour into cannabis extract. Adastra’s process will create high-value cannabis extracts by supercritical CO2 extraction and secondary distillation, which will be easily incorporated into a variety of value-added products such as; edibles, beverages, topicals, tinctures and vape cartridges that will serve the Canadian medical and adult-use cannabis markets.
