The Green Organic Dutchman Ltd. Receives Licence From Health Canada To Produce Medical Marijuana
By Marijuana.Ca Staff on August 19, 2016
The Green Organic Dutchman Ltd., located in Hamilton, Ontario, announced on August 17, 2016 that it had received authorization from Health Canada, and is now Canada's 35th Licensed Producer under the Marijuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR).
Scott Skinner and Jeannette VanderMarel are the co-founders and owners of the newly licensed facility in Hamilton, Ontario.
A press release issued by The Green Organic Dutchman Ltd., on August 17, 2016 stated:
"We are proud of our new and purpose built facility and are excited to begin producing organically grown quality cannabis for patients across Canada," said Scott Skinner. "I look forward to working closely with Health Canada to ensure we produce a safe and high quality product," says Scott Skinner in describing his exacting Quality Assurance program. "Our expansion plans include greenhouse and buildings, and we will maintain our eco-friendly, carbon sensitive design. With a 10 kw solar array and geothermal heating in addition to our reforestation efforts, we value ecological practices on our 25-acre farm."
Jeannette's daughter Breanne passed away in 2003 as a result of a severe epilepsy disorder, very likely Dravet syndrome. Breanne was never given cannabis as reports of cannabis for seizure treatment weren't widely available at the time. "My hope is that cannabis medicines will help to reduce the devastating impact of seizure disorders," said Jeannette VanderMarel, a Registered Nurse.
The Green Organic Dutchman Ltd. is a family farm, not a pharmaceutical company, that wants to produce a great product in small batches using craft growing, all natural and organic principles.
