- What kind of securities do you offer?

If you live in a country where medicinal cannabis is legal, you can just go to your doctor and talk about that possibility. We cannot supply directly to patients.

Our cultivation operation is indoors, so that we can control all the environment and the artificial atmospheric conditions.

Additionally, we use CO2 cycles to boost the flower growth.
