Sira Naturals Receives Approval To Produce Cannabis For Adult-Use In Massachusetts
MILFORD, Mass. June 21, 2018 – Sira Naturals, One of Massachusetts’ largest registered marijuana dispensary (RMD) group, today announced that it has received approval from the Cannabis Control Commission (CNB) for a Tier 3 Cultivation License. This license, the first granted in the State, enables the company to grow between 10,001 and 20,000 square feet of premium cannabis for adult-use. Since 2016 Sira Naturals has cultivated medical marijuana in Milford, Massachusetts and is currently developing plans to expand the state-of-the-art cultivation facility.
“It is an honor to receive the first Cultivation License from the Cannabis Control Commission here in Massachusetts. This historic milestone is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our exceptional team and to the countless cannabis industry stakeholders throughout the Commonwealth whose passion to legalize cannabis made this dream a reality,” said Michael Dundas, president and chief executive officer of Sira Naturals. “This is an exciting first step on the path toward making our premium cannabis products available to a wider audience than ever before.”
This announcement comes just weeks following Sira Naturals’ launch of the Nation’s first and only cannabis business acceleration program, The Sira Accelerator. The Sira Accelerator is a dynamic business and entrepreneurship program, providing the opportunity for craft cultivators, entrepreneurs, and cannabis microbusinesses to enter the regulated cannabis industry. The program will provide entrepreneurs applying for a Marijuana Product Manufacturer Microbusiness license with the knowledge, experience and access to technology and cannabis oil needed to launch their business.
