Inside 514 cannabis factory

We proudly produce quality cannabis a true 514 resident can relate to, and that any Canadian can appreciate.

It all starts with a seed.

514’s vertical, state-of-the-art aeroponic towers provide the perfect living environment for quality cannabis production. We create an incomparable growing climate known to be clean, efficient, and rapid.

By dramatically reducing the chances of spreading plant disease and infection commonly found in soil, we achieve a fresh, local, and unique nurturing process.
