TransCanna’s Lyfted Farms cited for helping fight against COVID-19

The Modesto-based cannabis grower gets recognition from California’s Stanislaus County.

Lyfted Farms formed in 2016 and was acquired in 2019 by TransCanna.


A subsidiary of Canadian-listed TransCanna Holdings Inc. is being recognized for lending a hand during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lyfted Farms, a Modesto, California-based cannabis grower, will receive a certificate of appreciation from the state’s Stanislaus County.

A media release by the West Vancouver-headquartered TransCanna on Friday (November 5) related that Lyfted Farms “played an instrumental role in providing local seniors and veterans with meals”.

The cannabis cultivator did so by “donating cold freezer storage space, a forklift and distribution assistance to a program run by the Stanislaus Department of Aging and Veterans Services”.

The program provided meals to over 1,500 seniors a week.

TransCanna also related that Lyfted Farms helped the Stanislaus County Office of Emergency Services to store 450 pallets of personal protective equipment or PPE for six months.

The PPE supply supported local efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.

“We are proud of our contributions to the larger effort to assist the community and seek to create a public perception of cannabis-centric businesses that is as positive as the contributions cannabis makes daily in the lives of so many millions of people,” TransCanna and Lyfted Farms COO Alan Applonie said.

The Stanislaus County will present a certificate of appreciation to the cannabis grower on November 8.

James “Bob” Blink established Lfted Farms in 2016.

The company was acquired by TransCanna in 2019.

Blink was appointed as TransCanna’s CEO last year.

The company trades in the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker symbol TCAN.

As of this post, TCAN was trading $0.63 each.
