Go Inside the Tweed Cannabis Factory with ‘The New York Times’

The realities of large-scale corporate cannabis production are still relatively unknown – that is, until now. The New York Times took a trip to the Tweed cannabis factory in Smiths Falls, Ontario, Canada, where they are authorized to hold up to 15,000 kilograms of marijuana – which to put it into perspective has the street value of $100 million USD plus. The company took over an abandoned Hershey factory where they develop a selection of varieties in a particularly clinical environment. These marijuana strains range from chocolate and coffee to blueberry, all of which come with Tweed-related monikers: Sherlock, Argyle, Houndstooth and Twilling, which have a slightly more up-market feel than the nicknames we’re used to. Watch the video above for an insight into the business, and find out more from the NY Times.
