Zyus Aims to Start Cannabis Oil P​roduction in January

A Saskatoon medical marijuana company is going on a hiring spree after obtaining a federal processing licence, which will allow it to begin producing thousands of bottles of cannabis oil as early as next month.

While more approvals are needed before sales can begin, Zyus Life Sciences Inc.’s founder said the company plans to increase the size of its workforce by a quarter and have its pilot-scale plant up and running next month.

Zyus is located at Innovation Place in Saskatoon.
