“With the outdoor harvest now complete, we’ve achieved a significant milestone. WeedMD now has a significant amount of cannabis that we intend to bring to market over the current and coming quarters as both dried flower and in various value-added formats. Combining our vertically-integrated extraction business at our CX Industries site in Aylmer with our low-cost production of dried flower, we are well positioned to emerge as a leader in the production and sale of extracts. “Keith Merker, CEO of WeedMD
With regards to value added product manufacturing, WeedMD’s extraction-focused subsidiary, CX Industries, has now entered operations. The firm has commissioned its first extractor, a Vitalis Q-90 CO2 extractor that is capable of extracting 26,000 kilograms of biomass annually.

Two more extractors will be installed in 2020, allowing CX to have an annual extraction capacity of 200,000 kilograms of cannabis and hemp biomass.
The operations of CX Industries are also further bolstered by the receipt of appropriate licensing to allow for the manufacturing of edibles, topicals, and concentrates. WeedMD’s cannabis 2.0 products are anticipated to hit retailers as early as January 2020.
