Tilray immediately potted thousands of plants in those rooms, and the medical cannabis grown in them is now reaching the end of its processing cycle. Construction of the facility is complete and it is operating at 85 percent capacity. Pending the approval of six additional grow rooms by Health Canada, the facility will be operating at full capacity. Tilray is hopeful that the approvals will be granted in the coming weeks.
