iN PHOTOS: What cannabis harvesting looks like in Rock Creek
It’s harvest season for cannabis companies in the Interior and an outdoor facility in Rock Creek is harvesting its crop until the end of October.
SpeakEasy Cannabis Club Ltd. a holder of a federal licence to cultivate, process, and sell cannabis, is expecting to see another record-breaking harvest this year, after last year’s record season, according to a press release issued by the company.
On Sept. 28, the company began the harvest of its outdoor facility. The conditions this summer have been favourable for the crops.
This year, SpeakEasy believes that with the combination of the use of genetics, earlier planting, additional vegging facilities, and increased plant density, it will achieve another bumper crop for the 2021 outdoor growing season. With all of the infrastructure in place, the company said it can process the entire 2021 outdoor harvest into finished products before the end of 2022, according to the press release.
Once harvested, a large portion of the yield will be fresh frozen and allocated for live resin. Live resin has been among one of the popular products from SpeakEasy’s B-to-B products streams.
Pre-rolls have proven to be another successful revenue stream SpeakEasy will continue to focus on and develop. The remainder of the yield will be used for dried flower or processed into extract material, according to the press release.
SpeakEasy owns 290 acres of land in Rock Creek. It cultivates small batch, high quality craft cannabis at scale in a portion of its 63,200 square foot indoor cannabis complex and has completed its harvest of its 60-acre outdoor field.
