MMJ Group Holdings Ltd (ASX:MMJ) Canadian investment Embark Health Inc has received all occupancy and business licences required from the city of Delta, British Columbia, and is set to begin extraction of cannabis later this month.

This step was foreshadowed by MMJ in February following the receipt of the company’s Health Canada licence necessary to operate the facility.

Initially, Embark Health intends to produce Bubble Hash, Dry Sift Kief and Rosin for commercial sale in addition to providing tolling services to a wide range of customers.

Other extraction techniques will be added as more rooms in the facility are licensed.
