4 Core Regulatory Requirments

In Becomming a Micro Cultivator


Placing your new cannabis venture

Selecting the space for your new micro cultivation facility is crucial for success. When building from the ground up we design and suggest facilities to be built with all-steel, non-combustible construction.  It is very important to keep cleanliness at top priority and with this in mind, wood is not used for the construction of these facilities.

The area chosen for your micro cultivator project can be agriculture land or industrial but must not be residential and in most cases, not commercial land due to the disturbance factor of neighboring businesses. Separate micro facilities on the same property may be licensed individually. However, only one license per unique address may be attached.

* You will want an area large enough to build a 4,500 - 8,000 Square foot building.

* Ensure that your area can be zoned for cannabis cultivation.

1. "Only one license per unique address"


Constructed to perfection

Recreational growing facilities and a  micro cultivation floor plan must have a strict workflow and good growing practices in place. Incorporating all the necessary rooms, building materials, and movement within the facility is crucial to obtaining a green light from Health Canada. We have worked with many legal, recreational cannabis facilities throughout Canada over the past 20 years and have a strong understanding of how to ensure your facility passes inspections. We are fully confident in our floor-plans for both the proper workings of a growing environment and Health Canada's strict guidelines.

A fully built-out facility must be in place with the right workflow and growing systems & practices for approval, this is where we come in. Our facilities are designed with fully automated hydroponics and medical-grade interior structures. Complete with shipping & receiving bays, trimming rooms, nurseries, decontamination chambers, and much more.

* Facility must be in place and able to operate prior to submission for approval.

* Submitting a professionally engineered & designed facility plan expedites the process.

Build it, and they will come

Now that you have your land and your facility built, its time to get your facility passed with Health Canada. Once you have your facility constructed you now have exactly what Health Canada wants to see in order to approve your licensing..

We can help walk you through the application process. Once you have your working facility at a turn-key stage, receiving your application approval is a breeze. Produces must follow good production practices. Our (GPP) plans are designed by a master grower, dialed over decades of hands-on experience.


When you are approved by Health Canada you may begin operations. We will always be available to answer any questions you have or put your team on a monthly consulting program.

4. "Producers must follow good production practices"

Growing System

Commercial cultivation requires an automated system, reducing as much manual labor as possible. Keeping labor costs down and offering more time with the plants.


Hydroponics is the preferred method for most professional indoor commercial growers. This is because of its scalability, cleanliness, and speed of growth among other things.

Depending on the growing facility (vertical farming or traditional) and the customer's end product preferences, we would determine the best automated hydroponics system for your needs.

Hydroponics systems vary from medium rich methods to the roots living in air tight chambers with the nutrients brought to them via fog. They can be as simplified as they can be complex, but the right method depends on the skill level entering the operation or the clients requirements such as top flower production, large tree style growth, extract production etc.


Although there are more hydroponic methods, these are our favorites.

  1. Drain to waste

  2. Nutrient film technique

  3. Deepwater culture

  4. Aeroponics and high-pressure aeroponics

  5. Fogponics and high-pressure fogponics

As confusing as this may all seem when starting out, we simplify this with our planning and detailed project management. Systems are fully automated and timed, so you can leave the hard part to us and just sit back and reap the benefits of a fully automated system.

Grow lighting has come a long way since the basic old high pressure sodium lights. You have a wide array of lighting to choose from, and it can be daunting to pick.

Understanding a small amount about grow lighting and the terminology is a great place to start.

PAR is a measurement of light within the range of 400-700nm with the 400nm area being the blue wavelength and the 700nm wavelength being red's.  This represents the area of light that plants use to grow. PPFD or photosynthetic photon flux density. PPFD measures the amount of PAR that makes it to the cannabis plant.

Growing styles are equally as diverse as lighting choices. Selecting the right lighting to work with your facility is an important decision that we will simplify for you. To give you an example, if we are setting up a vertical farming facility then we will be using LED lighting. There is no way that double ended high intensity discharge lighting would work in a vertical growing style as its far too close to the plants.

There is no perfect light for every setup. However,

LED lighting has come a long way if using the right brands and can offer some of the same results if not more then leading double ended lighting with higher terpens and THC content due to the UV emitted by certain LED lights. We only offer the brands that are tried, tested and true with our facility designs. There are many inexpensive LED lights off Amazon and other sites, however, they do not seem to produce the same yields as something like the Gavita LED's. We find that the every different system and facility has a different category of lights you may choose from.


  1. Fluorescent (seeds & clones)

  2. High pressure sodium (flowering air-cooled)

  3. Metal halide (vegetative air-cooled)

  4. Double ended HPS (Commercial, high ceilings)

  5. LED (Starters, commercial or small-scale)

  6. Sulfur plasma lighting (lowest power draw)

Consulting for hydroponics grow.jpg

4 trees cannabis did an amazing job at my site.  Dan and I discussed ideas over the phone and he  was very informative and never once asked me for money.  I never felt pressured and once I decided to go ahead with his services everything was done professionally and on a timely manner .  Dan and his team are very positive and creative, they can work with any layout and obstacle , even though my site  was a bit of a task and I had concerns  they managed to go beyond my expectations.
Till this day I am still currently in contact with Dan and he’s always been there to help me if I had any questions or concerns.  I would highly recommend this company and I’m looking forward to working on another site with them  in the near future.
