Castleblack Cannabis (Marijuana Farm / Ganja Farm), Islington, St Mary, Jamaica


Castleblack Cannabis is a Marijuana Farm (also Ganja Farm) located in Nutfield District, Islington, St Mary, Jamaica (Caribbean). Residents in Islington, St Mary, are embracing a multimillion-dollar marijuana industry investment in their community. Castleblack Cannabis is in the licensing phase of business and is expected to be a fully operating ganja farm. The plantation is expected to be one of Jamaica’s largest medical marijuana businesses. The 28-acre property will have over 100,000 sq ft of greenhouse space with 32 state of the-art greenhouses expected to be built for marijuana farming. East towards Robins Bay and Annotto Bay coastline There will also be a 40,000 sq ft laboratory including a custom built drying and processing facility for genetics, clones, and seeds. Research and development collaboration with the University of West Indies on the plantation. South-west towards Highgate A 15,000 square-foot main office and residence for guests and doctors. A 10,000 sq ft Genetics and water treatment facility. North-west toward Port Maria Aron Cadeau, CEO of Castleblack, out of Ontario Canada, said he hopes to create a great impact worldwide in the marijuana industry through Castleblack’s investment in Jamaica. Cadeau said the main aim is exporting to Europe and Canada where Castleblack has sister companies. The community has already embraced Castleblack and he is looking forward to working with them. The investment is expected to provide full-time employment for a workforce of over 50 people, soon to grow to over 100 people once the operation is started. Apart from farmers, who will be an active part of the business once operations start, Cadeau said the community is set to benefit in ways such as tourism. “Tourists are going to be able to come here and do like a winery tour, like in California, for medical marijuana, and see how the plants are grown and a lot of what is earned will be going right back into the community.” However, in the development stages residents are already benefiting, with many employed from the community. Errol Jacky Haughton, vice-president of National Ganja Growers Association and president of the St Mary Chapter, said getting Castleblack to invest in Jamaica took hard work and dedication. He said getting an investor into St Mary was his passion. Haughton, who is also the public relations officer for Castleblack Jamaica, said the Ganja Growers Association has been getting its members to apply to become licensed growers so they can play their part going forward. Haughton said the process of getting companies to invest in the marijuana industry is a very tedious one. He explained that for an overseas company to participate in the industry the law is for the Jamaican entity to have 51 per cent share in that company. “Not only is it difficult for many Jamaicans to come up with the capital needed, but many investors do not like the arrangement,” he stated.
