BC Hemp Corporation plans to lease land from local farmers to grow hemp fibre and grain. The company will start with a small test site, but hopes to expand to a 300,000-acre operation by 2025. The company's plan includes several facilities in the Prince George area to process the hemp, extract cannabidiol —CBD — and conduct pharmaceutical research.
The BC Hemp Corporation is hoping to break ground on a $350 million industrial production site in Prince George. The company is planning for a site to be at the northeast corner of Johnson Road and the Old Cariboo Highway. If approved, the company says production would start within the next two years and would create more than 1,500 jobs near B.C.'s northern capital.
