About Stigma – Stigma has developed a commercial “craft cannabis” grow facility located on land it purchased in the Red Deer County. Stigma currently has 42 proprietary cannabis varieties with a wide range of terpene and potency profiles. It holds a lease and option to purchase a 66,000sq ft facility located on its lands. The facility has currently been built out for 22,000sq ft of cultivation to meet demands of recreational cannabis, as well as medicinal consumption needs. The facility is currently set up for multiple grow rooms, drying rooms, a packaging and processing room, a shipping area and a secure product storage area.
Stigma recently received a Cultivation License and a Processing License for cannabis from Health Canada. “Phase 1” of the facility is designed to produce 1,500 kg per annum. “Phase 2” will involve the raising and investment of additional capital and an expansion to 16,000 kgs per annum. The founders of Stigma have invested over 2 years of research and development to determine optimal cannabinoid profiles and yield. Stigma has also applied for a Sales License. Stigma Pharmaceuticals looks to become one of the few vertically integrated craft companies in this market space.
