Plants growing

Niagara College's Commercial Cannabis Production program now has a licence from Health Canada to cultivate industrial hemp.

Students will be studying plant genetics, seeding and germination, flower identification, harvesting, and drying hemp.

Dean of Business, Tourism and Environment Alan Unwin says,  "The uses and the industries for the hemp plant and the cannabis plant are quite different so this will help them when they graduate. It's staying on top of things that we're seeing in the industry."

Production is already underway after students grew a small field in the college's hop yard over the summer.
