Our vision is to create Canada’s largest legal independent collective of world-class micro cultivators. We will aggregate production and stream compliant output through our distribution portal.
A collective is a group of entities that share or are motivated by at least one common issue or interest, or work together to achieve a common objective.
How We are Different
Pattern is a first mover in the micro cultivation space and we are the only entity building GMP micro facilities to purpose. All other models use the right of first refusal supply agreement; this system allows brokers and other purchasing entities to collaborate, cooperate, and agree on an average price per gram that will be lower than the price per gram average that Pattern’s collective will negotiate in the open craft cannabis marketplace. We will sell large quantities of our output to these companies. Pattern and its competitors want craft cannabis to thrive in Canada, but we simply differ on our approach.
Pattern will create a craft cannabis marketplace where our output will be sold at the market value price that we negotiate. Our bargaining power increases when micro cultivators are consolidated across the country. We also process and package the output onsite at each facility and this allows us to be both selective about to whom our crops are sold to and the average price per gram we receive.
We will succeed by sticking with our approach and living our values: collaboration, community, craft, and compliance.
We care about growers.
Our complete focus is on building GMP certified cultivation facilities across Canada and creating the largest community of independent growers in the world. We empower and create a collective that leverages its bargaining power to negotiate the most profitable supply agreements. The brand’s first mover status will allow us to help create the Canadian craft cannabis marketplace and ensures that there is an opportunity for all independent growers to enter the legal cannabis ecosystem.
This is why we created Pattern Micro Cultivation.
Our business and logistical expertise combined with your cultivation prowess creates a powerful partnership. By creating a collective of independent micro cultivators, we are able to compete with the existing economy of scale by creating our own economy of scope. A broad portfolio of cannabis strains, oils, edibles (2019), and lifestyle products will create a marketing advantage for our growers by appealing to a greater range of customer preferences. Continued diversification will sustain this advantage. Our turnkey ‘plug and grow’ model scales our cultivation square footage while keeping expansion and overall costs well below that of traditional producers.
A lot has to be covered in terms of time, capital, logistics, and effort, for a grower to transition into the legal cultivation ecosystem in Canada. Pattern will be there every step of the way.

Passion and respect for the cannabis lifestyle
Independent growers will produce the best dried flower and cannabis products in the legal cultivation ecosystem. There will be challenges with regulatory compliance, business processes, logistics, distribution, and the supply agreements will favor the broker and not the independent grower. None of the territorial or provincial distribution outlets will purchase from one individual grower. Our leverage increases as the Pattern collective grows. The per gram average sale price will be higher if we work together instead of competing against one another.
Our community is bigger than just growers. We have assembled a team of facility designers, builders, equipment suppliers, growing consultants, software companies, communications and marketing experts, lawyers, potential investors, and other strategic partners.
Together, as a community, we will compete with the larger cultivators and we will all prosper.
