C3 Industries, a cannabis producer and retailer from Michigan, announced Tuesday that it has completed the construction of a 36,000-square-foot indoor cultivation facility that will produce marijuana for both the medical and recreational markets.
The Michigan market is facing supply shortages in the wake of the Dec. 1 kickoff of adult use sales.
The facility went online in November and is expected to reach full capacity in the first quarter of 2020, the company said.
The Webberville facility will product cannabis for products sold under the Cloud Cover Cannabis brand.
