A Canadian company headquartered in Kelowna, B.C., has announced its most recent harvest resulted in 980 grams of dried cannabis per plant, or about 35 ounces. Under perfect outdoor growing conditions, a yield closer to 500 grams per plant is usually expected. It’s more than double the amount Allied Corp. achieved with its first harvest, when each plant averaged about 424 grams of cannabis.
