US (OH): GreenGro sells 25,000 sq. ft. vertical farm to MMJ grower

Biodynamics, a subsidiary of GreenGro Technologies announced that it has received a commitment from Ohio Medicinal Gardens, based out of Akron, Ohio, to build a state of the art Level-I 25,000 square foot medical marijuana facility. “I am 100% behind the system, it is the best we have seen,” said Joseph Scaccio, CEO of Ohio Medicinal Gardens.

The facility will be equipped with three tiers of fully automated recirculating vertical hydroponic production, and will be powered by a combined cooling, heat and power (CCHP) positive pressure HVAC system to improve energy efficiency and sustainability.

With medicinal cannabis, recently being legalized in the State of Ohio, applications are being submitted and accepted for cultivation facilities in record numbers. OMG and GreenGro Technologies successfully submitted the application to the State by the June 30, 2017 deadline and is currently waiting for approval, which could be received as early as November 2017.

OMG was the first of seven facilities to be approved by Akron’s Planning Committee in early June, and on Monday, July 31st,, Akron’s City Council approved OMG Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for the facility’s location. “Biodynamics was founded in Akron, Ohio, and we are excited to have the opportunity to build one of the most advanced medical marijuana cultivation facilities in the country, right here in our home town,” said Trisha Madden, CEO of Biodynamics.

OMG has also committed to working with GenoBreeding, Inc. out of Anaheim, California to grow medicinal strains in the U.S. in order to distribute them to the emerging Ohio cannabis market.

GenoBreeding is also developing a proprietary digital genetic database that will be used as an online cloud-based library of digitally sequenced genomes and phenotypic (chemical composition) information on all existing and new plant varieties.
