(GOTHENBURG, Sweden / SAN FRANCISCO, CA, March 23, 2017) – Heliospectra AB (publ) (OTCQB: HLSPY, FIRSTNORTH: HELIO), a world leader in intelligent lighting technology for controlled plant growth environments, announced today that Canada’s Island Garden Inc, a licensed medical cannabis cultivation facility located on Prince Edward Island, Canada, decided to invest in Heliospectra intelligent LED lighting solutions at a value of $208,368 USD (1,871,186 SEK). This will be the second purchase for this customer following an extensive trial period.
Canada’s Island Garden Inc. is a family-run business with a deeply rooted agricultural background and generations of floral nursery experience. The company received a license from Health Canada to grow medical marijuana and operates within a new and highly regulated system under the terms of the Access to Cannabis for Medicinal Purposes Regulations (ACMPR).
“We believe our horticultural experience, pristine environment and stringent quality controls will result in a consistent and high-quality medicinal product for our customers here at Canada’s Island Garden,” says Edwin Jewell, president. “We chose Heliospectra because the lighting solution proved to us that it can deliver consistent yields and the pharmaceutical-grade cannabis our customers demand.”
Heliospectra’s intelligent LED lighting solutions provide growers a sole-source lighting solution with high intensity and a fully adjustable spectrum for strain-specific lighting strategies across the plant growth cycle. Proven to accelerate cannabis flowering time and boost trichomes harvest after harvest, Heliospectra lighting technology significantly reduces energy and utility costs as well as HVAC infrastructure needs when compared to traditional high pressure sodium (HPS) lights often used in controlled environment agriculture.
“Our adjustable light combined with Heliospectra’s lighting strategies enable commercial crop producers to achieve consistent medicinal properties, consistently high yields and high-quality products year round,” said Ali Ahmadian, CEO. “Commercial cultivators also recognize sustainable gains with reduced energy consumption and HVAC infrastructure which clearly confirm intelligent LEDs as the most viable option for business.”
