The Weedon, Quebec CannaCentre is set to be a very interesting place to visit. MYM Nutraceuticals Inc. has partnered with The Sherbrooke Historical Society to create a museum dedicated to cannabis, the first of its kind in Canada.

The Centre will be located at MYM’s flagship cannabis production facility in Weedon, on their newly established 329 acres of land, much of which was purchased through its partially owned subsidiaries and will now be greatly dedicated to cannabis filled greenhouses totalling 1.5 million-square-feet of grow space.

The historical society will be recommending management style at the museum. An MYM press release states, “To help the Sherbrooke Historical Society in this mandate, an Advisory Committee will be established, comprised of Weedon residents, representatives from the MRC du Haut-Saint-François, as well as from the region’s tourist and cultural sectors.”

This will be the world’s biggest, zero carbon footprint, CannaCentre. Aside from housing a marijuana museum, the property will boast an education centre, which will work with universities in the realm of botany. There will be degrees and vocational programs available onsite, with certifications regarding the cannabis plant and operations from seed to sale.

They also plan to have an attached a lab, a testing facility and an auditorium for lectures that is slated to hold over 2,000 people. There will be a health care clinic that will include an impressive twenty-two 1000-square-foot apartments for various treatments. “This plan will make Weedon the cannabis capital of Canada,” states the MYM website.

It will be interesting to see what will be on display at the new museum to say the least. Will the drug war be covered alongside the brave burgeoning world of legalization that it created? Will American and other foreign hemp and cannabis heroes make the cut or will it be a predominantly Canadian themed display?

The entire compound sounds like a cannabis haven regardless, and the treatment based apartments lend hope for many very ill patients. It’s surprising in some ways that a cannabis museum is breaking new grounds in Canada just now, but it’s a welcome surprise and we look forward to seeing the artwork and materials they choose to display for the education and entertainment of their guests.
