TransCanna Holdings has received manufacturing and distribution permits for its adult-use cannabis production satellite in Southern California.
"TransCanna’s 10,000-square-foot facility in Adelanto, California, will serve as a distribution satellite for goods transported to the Southern California region from the company’s 196,000-square-foot cannabis-focused hub in Modesto. The Adelanto facility will also serve as a site for the production, packaging and distribution of pre-rolled cannabis products and other products of similar nature, according to the company’s news release about the permits," the team with the company explains.
"The Adelanto City Council also provided encouragement to our operations, voting to reduce its local taxes from five percent to one percent on cannabis transportation and lab services, five percent to three percent on dispensaries, and $5 per month per square foot down to 42 cents per month per square foot on cannabis cultivation enterprises."
With the temporary permits in hand, the company’s wholly owned subsidiary, TCM Distribution Inc., is continuing to pursue permanent licenses for cannabis manufacturing and distribution, as well as the needed state permits.
“GoodFellas, one of the entities the Company is preparing to acquire, will be transferring all revenue generating distribution and manufacturing processes to Adelanto once the facility receives its Certificate of Occupancy from the city, and state distribution and manufacturing permits,” TransCanna CEO Jim Pakulis stated in a news release. “We anticipate this being completed by the end of June.”
GoodFellas is a full-service cannabis advertising and marketing agency with established consumer demand and ‘SKU velocity’ in its brand, Daily Cannabis Goods, which launched last August. The Daily brand has three quality, half-gram pre-rolled joints, and TransCanna plans to add three more SKUs once the acquisition is complete.
The Modesto hub facility is a three-story, multi-purpose building that’s expected to serve up to five satellites statewide as TransCanna grows. The self-contained cannabis operation is anticipated to include integrated divisions for transportation and distribution, cultivation and nursery, lab extraction, and manufacturing and packaging on a 5.5-acre property parcel that the company envisions as holding space for about 400,000 square feet of new indoor growing operations, Pakulis said during an eight-minute video tour of the large Modesto facility.
