A cannabis company is banking on the Michigan sun and the state’s cool air to power their ultra-engineered hybrid greenhouse in Marshall.
Inside a glass-walled building the size of three and a half football football fields, Michigan Pure Med plans to grow 50,000 plants starting this fall for the state’s medical marijuana industry.
The facility, which is being built this summer, has been engineered in a similar way to a data center that’s built to keep thousands of computer servers secure, cool and clean.
Michigan Pure Med has secured 30 class-C grow licenses for the 200,000-square-foot hybrid greenhouse that’s under construction now in Marshall and will be completed by the fall. If needed, additions could be added to the greenhouse to bring it up to 1.2 million square feet.
