Today’s podcast overview/transcript:
Good afternoon and welcome to another episode of Investorideas.com “Potcast” featuring cannabis news, stocks to watch as well as insights from thought leaders and experts.
In today’s podcast Investorideas interviews Anthony Charles, the Co-Founder of Oakum Cannabis Corp., a privately-owned and operated, licensed producer of cannabis products based in Kelowna, British Columbia, where we discussed what separates Oakum from some of its competitors when it comes to its facility and grow techniques as well as how the company has maintained operations through the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Anthony, like many Cannabis Entrepreneurs in the industry today, did not start with a Cannabis background but instead was a machinist who eventually developed a love for growing cannabis through personal experiences. Anthony and his family later thought to turn this passion into a business back around 2013 but due to difficulties with government and lack of investors it took until 2018 to establish a site and begin construction.
Anthony and the Oakum team personally designed their facility from scratch, which I was lucky enough to receive a tour of, and from security to water treatment to their roto grow machines the facility goes above and beyond to be state of the art.

Anthony went on to discuss how their high tech facility came about saying, “To grow under compliance with Health Canada can sometimes be a bit tricky. You want to be compliant and do the best job you can, but because of certain rules you have to follow, which we’re glad to follow, makes you have to sort of think outside the box on what you can do to optimize your facility and stay in compliance. One of the main areas we found was overhead. By the time you’ve put in all of these auxiliary rooms and you put an extraction lab in the facility like we have, in a 10,000 square foot facility it doesn’t give you as much space to grow as you might like. So we decided as opposed to just looking at the square footage of our building, since we had height in our building, we went vertical with it so that was one of our reasons to choose Roto Grow, so we could produce more product in a smaller space and in a more controlled environment. We go two machines high and we get twice as much canopy space in a room as opposed to traditional growing. From there we have all these machines that are automated but you’ve got to water them so we went ahead and brought in a whole fertigation unit that is from a subsidiary of RotoGrow and we are the first ones in Canada to have this specific fertigation unit. All of our water comes in municipal, then we heavily filter it, carbon filter it, UV filter it, test it and then mix it through our machine and add the nutrients which you write the recipe that tracks everything for you. Then we send it off to the rooms and since it’s a flood and drain style system we can see day to day what’s happening at our root zone. This allows us to focus our attention away from the physical mixing and measuring nutrients and focus more time on what changes you may want to make to your environment and investigating plants and perfecting our craft here.”
This system of growing also gives the Oakum team access to a large series of data sets regarding their grow techniques when it comes to nutrient and water levels on an hour by hour basis which allows them a large deal of control over their plants.
Oakum products may not be out on the market yet but Anthony and his team have a very specific concept for the Oakum brand and are expecting to receive their sales license within the next few months.
Mr. Charles went on to discuss the company’s unique extraction techniques in more detail, how the COVID-19 Pandemic has affected their business as well as the future of Oakum and their products.
