GrowLife announced that the Canadian patent regulatory authority issued the Company a patent on the design of its EZ-CLONE Pro Commercial Cloning System entitled “Aeroponics System with Rack and Tray” under patent number 2,985,009.
The product was developed by GrowLife’s recently majority acquired EZ-CLONE Enterprises, Inc. which specializes in the manufacturing of cloning and propagation equipment. "The newly patented design was developed for commercial plant cultivators in the hemp and cannabis industries to provide a sustainable, user-friendly way to fill the growing demand for clones," the team with the company says. "The award-winning EZ-CLONE Pro is one-of-a-kind in both design and capacity with the ability to produce an industry-leading 459 cutting sites."
"Commercial cultivators are searching for solutions that enable them to grow more consistent and healthy plants as fast as possible, and we are able to deliver this to them," said GrowLife CEO Marco Hegyi. “Through decades of proven experience and under the leadership of Billy Blackburn, EZ-CLONE has built a legacy of the finest cloning products available and protecting this design was extremely important for the future of our company, as we further position ourselves as the leaders in hemp and cannabis cloning.”
According to the company, the demand for hemp and cannabis clones is increasing through continued cannabis legalization throughout the country as well as the passage of the United States 2018 Farm Bill. According to the Global State of Hemp, the global hemp market is expected to reach $5.7 billion across all markets in 2022. This is representing a three-year compound annual growth rate of nearly 18 percent.
“Our commercial cloning unit is one of the largest and most effective products on the market. Our customers are seeing almost 100 percent viability in clone production and generating roots up to 50 percent faster than conventional propagation methods. We can now proudly say that our unit is not only effective but proprietary and patented,” added GrowLife Executive Vice-President of Research at Development William “Billy” Blackburn.
