Kanata Earth is an Indigenous-owned vertically integrated cannabis company concentrated on cultivation, science, research and genetics.

 

Our planned 40K square foot cultivation facility in Cut Knife Saskatchewan is currently undergoing construction and awaiting licensing. Our genetics division is building a lab and research environment at the University of Saskatchewan.

We are 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.

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.

Our Nursery division (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 center.

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.

Kanata Earth Genetics

 

Kanata Earth Genetics is a research company led by some of Canada’s most senior plant biologists and cannabis experts. The main research focus of Kanata Earth Genetics is to engage in long term R&D that will provide a sustainable pipeline for the development of various strains best suited for the recreational, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, cosmetic, food and veterinary medicine industries.

Our science teams are led by Prof Dr Tim Sharbel based at the University of Saskatchewan and Dr. Igor Kovalchuk and Dr. Darryl Hudson of the University of Lethbridge. Their combined work will focus on genome sequencing, high throughput metabolomic analyses and novel reproductive tools for generating and stabilizing particular genotypes/chemotypes of cannabis.

KEG is opening a 10,000 square foot research center on the University of Saskatchewan campus; a global leader in agricultural research. Kanata Earth Genetics has partnered with the University to conduct cannabis research and development on the cannabis genome and file intellectual property protection on novel discoveries. Kanata Earth Genetics has also partnered with the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC) to accelerate the development of its research pipeline.

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. While no construction has begun yet, the foundation is expected to be poured sometime this Fall with cultivation beginning in Q3 2019 (estimated).

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 100K square foot Site B facility in Osoyoos British Columbia in late 2019.
