-And donating fish used in their aquaponic systems to shelters across the GTA -
HAMILTON, ON - Green Relief Inc., a licensed producer of medical cannabis in Flamborough, Ontario, has become the world’s leading expert on growing cannabis on a commercial scale using aquaponics. Aquaponics is a sustainable form of agriculture where fish and plants are grown together in a natural ecosystem-based environment. Aquaponics combines the best attributes of aquaculture and hydroponics without the use of chemical additives or having to discard harmful water into the environment. It can produce more than ten times the crop yield per acre and uses 90% less water than conventional farming.
With the natural resources of our planet being depleted at an alarming rate, Green Relief believes in striving to embed sustainability in every fiber of its company through awareness, involvement, and innovation. They incorporate strong environmental, health, and social values in everything they do from the geo-thermal advantage of their earth-sheltered building, to the 100% use of energy-saving LED lights and environmentally responsible aquaponic growing systems. From their planned integration of job positions for the physically disabled through the Ontario Disability Employment Network, to donating organically fed tilapia to the local homeless shelters for people in need.
Green Relief’s team of exceptional horticulturalists, scientists, and aquaponic specialists are committed and actively engaged in the company’s mandate for sustainability. It’s this greater purpose that has created such a powerful company culture where all the employees are personally engaged in a process where they can actually see how they are improving peoples’ lives and making a difference in the world. Exceptional people growing an exceptional plant.
At Green Relief, the cannabis plants are propagated from carefully selected mother plants that are replaced regularly to ensure that the strong genetics of each strain are maintained for optimum cannabinoid and terpene production. This ensures that the medical cannabis is consistent from batch to batch resulting in a dependable and high-quality product. Carefully tracked batches of each plant strain are harvested every two weeks to ensure maximum freshness, quality, and traceability is maintained for their patients.
The highly qualified Quality Assurance team at Green Relief ensures that all procedures and protocols are strictly applied during the growing, harvesting, drying, and extracting processes for their medical cannabis. All their products undergo strict testing by both their in-house scientists and third-party laboratories. Products are tested for potency levels as well as for microbiological contaminants, heavy metals, pesticides, and aflatoxins to ensure that patients are receiving a safe and consistent product in every order.
