VANCOUVER, Feb. 11, 2019, 05:00 ET /CNW/ – Rubicon Organics Inc. (CSE:ROMJ) (OTCQX:ROMJF) (“Rubicon Organics” or the “Company”), a super-premium, organic cannabis producer with operations in Canada, Washington and California, is proud to announce the establishment of its diverse genetic library in its newly licensed, 125,000 sq. ft. facility in Delta, British Columbia.
“Our extensive genetic library features unique stabilized cultivars previously developed in the medical cannabis market and will be instrumental in our breeding program where we commit to bringing new and exciting strains to the Canadian market”, said Jesse McConnell, Co-Founder and CEO of Rubicon Organics. “Plant genetics critically underpin our promise of high-quality terpene rich organic cannabis, therefore our library also includes cultivars not previously available in the Canadian market including Sour Cookies and Creek Congo, both known for their outstanding flavor and terpene profiles.”
