Cannasouth First Commercial Harvest. Media Highlights

We recently completed the first commercial harvest from our hybrid, controlled environment cultivation facility. This was a major milestone for us and marked the end of the first full growing cycle at our rural Waikato site.

Over the course of the harvest, we hosted several guests and journalists eager to share our story, we also produced our own video to mark the occasion. These videos are compiled below:

Lucas De Jong from Seven Sharp (TVNZ1) produced this video of the harvest.

We also hosted journalist Rachel Moore from Stuff, who wrote this article. 

Finally, here’s a video we produced in-house of CEO Mark Lucas, updating our followers about the significance of this event.

Year-round cultivation activities are now in progress at our custom-built facility, with the next batch of medicinal cannabis plants ready to be transplanted, once a deep clean and routine maintenance has been completed.

The harvest was a team effort, with internal staff helping. This was an important aspect of the harvest, not only giving all staff the opportunity to gain a good understanding of the product, but also for validating our processes before completing GACP (Good Agricultural and Collection Practices) audits.

Harvesting approximately 500 mature cannabis plants is no small feat, a special thanks to all our helpers (both internal and external), our team at Cannasouth Cultivation Limited for being wonderful hosts and accommodating our guests, and for caring for this crop right through to harvest.

The harvested flower will now dry in purpose-built drying rooms, until it is at optimum moisture levels, before being trimmed, packaged, and stored ready for sale.
