GreenSeal Cannabis Co., a Health Canada License Holder (LH) for cannabis cultivation, processing and sales, is pleased to announce its Master Grower and Co-Founder Chad Morphy has been recognized as “Canada’s Top Grower” in the Nov./Dec. edition of Grow Opportunity magazine.
In sync with the first full year of adult-use cannabis legalization in Canada, Grow Opportunity magazine launched its inaugural “Canada’s Top Growers” awards in 2019. A panel of expert volunteer judges evaluated nominees based on five main criteria:
- Shows deep understanding and knowledge of cannabis cultivation
- Demonstrates a strong work ethic
- Demonstrates an ability to lead and innovate
- Shows a strong passion and commitment to the production of high-quality cannabis products
- Commits to the highest standards of cannabis growing practices
After reviewing candidates from across the country the panel chose Mr. Morphy as one of just two Master Growers to share in the very first bestowment of this annual national award.
With nearly 20 years of experience in legal cannabis cultivation, Chad Morphy is a driving force behind the ongoing design and operation of GreenSeal Cannabis Co.’s innovative, state-of-the-art, multi-tiered, 28,000-square-foot indoor cannabis production facility in Stratford, Ontario. This award reflects the entire GreenSeal team’s data-driven culture of innovation and its accomplishments to date, which include the establishment of academic research partnerships with Université Laval and the University of Vermont and conducting the industry’s largest research study quantifying the increases in yields produced by full spectrum LED lighting.
Mr. Morphy’s nomination package included 3rd party lab results and in-house data demonstrating continual harvests with THC percentages of 20% and higher, exceptional terpene profiles and levels, and yields of 2.2 lbs. per 1000W of light.
While these harvest statistics and the multi-tier vertical growing system he designed are impressive, Morphy highlights his mentoring of young cannabis cultivators as his greatest accomplishment, “I hope the real legacy my work will leave behind is with the next generation of growers.”
