In May 2017, Supreme Cannabis started construction on its flagship cultivation facility, 7ACRES. This was the start of the structure’s transformation from a decommissioned tomato greenhouse to a 440,000 square foot, world-class cannabis cultivation facility. After 31 months, on December 21, 2019, all major construction on 7ACRES was completed.

Before entering the facility’s cultivation and processing areas, all visitors and employees are issued the 7ACRES reusable uniforms and standard PPE. In addition to reducing the facility’s environmental impact, the uniforms also protect 7ACRES’ plants. Unlike disposable coverall suits, the 7ACRES uniforms do not shed material and require clothing to be removed. This added safety precaution aims to protect 7ACRES valuable plants.

7ACRES production spaces are accessed through a central corridor. The central corridor spans the length of the entire facility and is approximately 1,142 feet long (the length of 3 football fields). All cultivation, production and processing zones can be accessed through the central corridor.

250,000 square feet of the 7ACRES footprint consists of twenty-five 10,000 square foot cultivation rooms. This specific design ensures a small-batch approach to growing, where each crop receives customized care from transplant to harvest. The hybrid growing environment guarantees complete climate control and the glass ceilings provide supplemental sunlight that supports terpene and resin development. Each room is equipped with systems that monitor and automatically adjust air circulation, humidity, CO2 levels and artificial and natural lighting. All aspects of each cultivation room are controlled to ensure an optimal growing environment for our strains.

The cannabis plants are moved into these cultivation rooms after their vegetative period and planted in oxygen-rich coco coir growing mediums to begin their 8-week flowering period. During this time, 7ACRES’s growers meticulously care for the plants, completing routine inspections and active canopy management to achieve a uniform crop. A well-managed canopy provides better air circulation and consistent light distribution. The combination of the hybrid greenhouse environment, quality driven growing techniques and continuous plant inspections make for a consistent high-quality end product.

7ACRES’ quality-oriented practices extend beyond cultivation; at 7ACRES, cannabis processing techniques are of the utmost importance. In the span of a single day, an entire flower room is harvested, all plants cut at the base of their stems to allow for a full plant dry.  A 2-week full plant dry process preserves terpenes and cannabinoids to ensure a desirable consumer product. 7ACRES’ unique drying room systems accommodate a full harvest in one, 1,500 square foot room.

With construction complete, additional space is ready for the installation of permanent processing equipment. An impressive piece of machinery driving significant efficiencies at 7ACRES is the new T-Zero trimmer. On average, the T-Zero’s commercial grade automation is increasing 7ACRES’ throughput by over 400%. First, 7ACRES uses the T-Zero trimmer on dry buds, then each bud is inspected for quality and receives a final hand polish before making its way to packaging.

In November 2019, 7ACRES introduced its first high-speed bottling line, which can package up to 12,000 containers per day. A second high-speed line was recently installed and is now operational. With advanced bud-selection and auto-filling features, this equipment meets 7ACRES’ high standards for its final packaged product.

Once packaged, each bottle is stamped, labeled and prepared for shipping. While awaiting shipment 7ACRES product is stored in our 10,000 square foot secured storage area.

With construction complete, 7ACRES is able to reach more consumers than ever before and build its brand across Canada. 7ACRES product is currently available in 10 provinces including Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, PEI, Québec and Saskatchewan.

What is THCP and CBDP?

A group of Italian researchers announced the discovery of two new phytocannabinoids that were isolated from the Cannabis sativa L. plant species. The study was led by Professor Giuseppe Cannazza from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, and was published in Scientific Reports.
