Kanata Earth is a cannabis company concentrated on research, genetics and tissue culture micropropagation. We offer testing and analytical lab services to the industry.

 

Our genetics company KE Genetics is housed in a 10K square foot lab and research facility located on campus at the University of Saskatchewan. We have a contractual relationship with The Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) which enables KE Genetics to market analytical and lab testing services. KE Genetics will provide genetic analysis services as part of this offering.

Kanata Earth is committed to providing opportunities to Indigenous Canadians by providing training and creating jobs, as well as giving back a percentage of our proceeds to support elder care and language preservation initiatives.

Our Nursery company (Kanata Earth Nurseries) is anticipating a Spring start to our facility construction on the University of Saskatchewan campus, not too far from the KEG research centre. This facility will provide tissue culture propagated nursery stock at a commercial scale with stabilized genetics for licensed producers and researchers in Canada.

Our planned 40K square foot cultivation facility in Cut Knife Saskatchewan is awaiting licensing.

Kanata Earth’s focus is on fostering innovation in cannabis through science and research, while offering a superior product to the Canadian market and advancing the industry as a whole.

 

World-Class Design

 

The Kanata Earth brand mark was created by world-class Indigenous architect, Douglas J. Cardinal, O.C., Ph.D. (h.c.); design architect of the Canadian Museum of History opposite Parliament Hill in Gatineau Quebec and architect of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, among other notable buildings. Cardinal originally painted the logo on canvas. He designed the logo in an ovoid shape, commonly used in his curvilinear design aesthetic and iconic in pacific northwest coast indigenous art. The four colours represent the four directions; North, South, East and West and the centre of the icon is White; symbolic of creation and the birth of creation. The Kanata Earth logo is the only logo that Mr. Cardinal has ever created.

Cultivation

 

Kanata Earth submitted its ACMPR application to become a Licensed Producer of cannabis in May of 2017 and made it through the detailed review and security clearance stage of the application earlier this year. Kanata Earth is currently working on its 40K square foot cultivation facility in Cut Knife Saskatchewan. 

Kanata Earth plans to grow premium organic cannabis and will rely on sustainable growing practices and environmental stewardship. The Cut Knife Saskatchewan facility will be the primary Site A facility with plans to submit an application for a larger Site B facility in Osoyoos British Columbia in late 2019.

Our cultivation facilities look forward to growing superior stabilized plants provided by Kanata Earth Nurseries.
