Bougainville announces that after a very thorough review the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) has finally approved the tenant grower to prepare the Oroville location for final inspection.
Leading up to final inspection the tenant grower will be required to provide updates detailing how the build-out is progressing and will include proof of this progress until the location is final inspection ready. Proof of progress can come in the form of copies of permitting paperwork, photographs of construction, and or other supporting documentation that shows progress has occurred at the cultivation facility in Oroville, WA.
The first 10,000 sq. ft. of a 30,000 sq. ft. Tier-3, I-502 production and processing license is already built. In addition to the 10,000 sq. ft. in-door space the tenant is planning to plant a 20,000 sq. ft. out-door crop as well. The tenant is licensed to build out up to 30,000 sq. ft and once fully built-out the facility will be able to house 1,500 to 1,800 plants. The tenant grower has decided to plant an auto-flower strain of cannabis for its in-door and out-door season.
The concept of auto-flowering strains is that they will automatically flower as opposed to waiting for a specifically timed light cycle. The plants begin to flower all on their own after a relatively short vegetative period of 2-4 weeks. Once planted outdoors, auto-flowering plants will start producing buds no matter how many hours of sunlight they are receiving, which means one will not need to worry about running a light deprivation system or supplementing light as the tenant is trying to achieve multiple harvests in a season.
CEO Andy Jagpal comments: “We are very excited to finally see our Tier-3 tenant receiving final approval for final inspection of the Oroville facility. It has been a long and drawn-out process dealing with the WSLCB, which took longer than we initially anticipated. Even though we were hoping to receive final inspection sooner we are happy to see it finally come through. We are very optimistic the tenant will receive approval to plant as the site has been ready for inspection since June 1, 2019.”
