The Path To Luxury Craft Cannabis

Navigate Your Cannabis Experience With Choice

About Us

Choice Growers provides an array of turnkey solutions and innovative state-of-the-art production facilities with proprietary cultivation technologies to passionate craft cannabis producers who value quality over quantity. Each production facility will include industry leading cultivars with advanced cultivation equipment and standardized processes enabling us to deliver a safe, consistent and high-grade Luxury Craft Cannabis product to the medical and recreational marketplace.

We Appreciate
the craft

We understand the challenges Licensed Producers face when attempting to produce high-grade cannabis at large scale. We recognize and appreciate highly skilled craft cannabis producers who have devoted their time to developing unique strains, creating extensive production techniques and obtaining the expertise to successfully harvest a Luxury Craft Cannabis product.

production facilities

Each one of our cutting-edge production facilities will have modern cultivation practices, stringent standard operating procedures and strong quality controls with a comprehensive employee onboarding and training program. We intend to build over ten best-in-class, wholly owned production facilities in Western Canada by 2023.

We Are cannabis

Our cannabis skilled workforce of professionals has obtained years of experience within Health Canada’s regulatory framework, successfully acquiring multiple production licenses and government security clearances. By developing a consortium of Luxury Craft Cannabis producers collectively working together will enable us to provide only the highest-grade products customers have grown to expect and trust.

Our CStar Cannabis Strathmore Facility

Choice Growers through its 100% wholly owned subsidiary CStar Cannabis, completed construction on our first production facility located in Strathmore, Alberta. In October 2019, CStar Cannabis was swiftly granted a Standard Cultivation and Processing Licence, allowing us to immediately start cannabis cultivation as Canada’s newest Luxury Craft Cannabis producer.

The CStar Cannabis location is ramping up production using our Advanced Aeroponic Cultivation System and by replicating the blueprint of our operations at each location, our strategy is to ensure consistency in all our cannabis products for medical and recreational consumers at a lower cost with improved grow cycles.
