At first glance, the Supreme Cannabis Company’s facility in Kincardine, Ont., looks something like a trailer park in the middle of a construction site.

The only real giveaway that it is the site of a cannabis farm is the pungent smell of pot as one approaches.

But behind the handful of trailers, serving as makeshift boardrooms until the company’s site expansion is complete this summer, are a dozen white greenhouses filled to the brim with cannabis plants in various stages of growth.

Each greenhouse is roughly the size of half a basketball court and can produce about 500 kilograms of dried cannabis flower per year.

By the standards of major Canadian licensed producers, that’s a pittance. But for Supreme, it’s entirely by design.
