We have built a dual purpose research and production glasshouse and two indoor growing chambers, designed to produce conservatively 30 kg of medicinal cannabis dried flower monthly all year round. The facilities of Phytotecnia are located midway between Wellington and Palmerston North in Kāpiti Coast, New Zealand, on a leased property purchased by the main shareholders of the Company with the only purpose of establishing the facilities.
The production and research complex is within a five-hectare section of flat rural land, surrounded by shelter-belts, on the verge of State Highway 1. It is only five minutes from the nearest township, Ōtaki. This is a well-known region for its suitable conditions for horticultural development. The climate in Kāpiti Coast is ideal for glasshouse production with no extreme maximum or minimum temperatures and a large number of annual sunshine hours. The land is isolated from any source of contamination and has virtually unlimited access to water and power. This is also a strategic location for innovation, being only an hour away from Massey University in Palmerston North, and from Victoria University and the Medical Research Institute of New Zealand in Wellington. Skilled and semi-skilled labour is abundant nearby.
