Food Product Destruction News

In what was labelled as a missed opportunity to find other uses of the byproduct for licensed marijuana, licensed marijuana producers in Canada are throwing out thousands of kilograms of plant waste every year.

According to Terry Lake, the vice-president of corporate social responsibility at Hydropothecary, a licensed producer in Gatineau, Quebec, Health Canada’s destruction policy for producers make it impossible to learn or benefit from the potentially valuable waste product.

Lake, who is a former health minister in British Columbia said they are growing about 3,000 kilograms to 108,000 kilograms every year and that is a lot of waste. He added that most of the things grown by Hydropothecary are disposed of.

He further stated that marijuana plants, like hemp plant, could be used as a fiber for several products such as animal feed, T-shirts, and housing siding.

Shawn McDougall, production manager at BlissCo, a licensed producer in Langley, British Columbia, said the company mixes leftover leaves, stalks and stems to its food waste compost. The amount dumped must be reported to Health Canada.

McDougall added that Health Canada mandates them to destroy and dispose even though that is a great future potential stuff. Hydropothecary undergoes the same process, Lake said.
