OPTIMAL GROWING CONDITIONS

ArcticPharm began as a conversation in 2017 between Yukon Territorial government officials and our founders. The government’s support, along with the attractive price of land and optimal growing conditions, brought all the pieces together. Growing in 18+ hour sunlight days and optimal natural levels of humidity will allow us to cost-effectively produce high-quality organic products. Our cold-water extraction process will further the natural methods story and reduce our processing costs.

POWER OF THE
MIDNIGHT SUN

During prime growing season, Whitehorse averages 18+ hours of sunlight daily – approximately 20% more than southern growing areas – promoting greater resin and cannabinoid production within our chosen strains.

EFFICIENT INDOOR AND GREENHOUSE GROWING

The dehumidification process is the single highest power consumer in typical facilities. The high altitude and low humidity of our farm dramatically reduces power usage to maintain the ideal indoor and greenhouse conditions.

OPTIMAL HUMIDITY FOR CANNABIS CULTIVATION

Whitehorse typically has 10-15% less humidity than southern grow locations and presents perfect levels for outdoor growing. Consistent low humidity winds, long sun hours, little dew formation and precipitation encourages optimal growing conditions greatly reducing the risk of mold and pests.

HARNESS THE POWER OF WINTER

The temperatures of Whitehorse fall below freezing shortly after harvest. We will harness the cold to efficiently cool our storage freezers while we prepare for extraction, further reducing energy consumption.
