1933 Industries has commenced the transfer of cannabis plants to its new cultivation facility in Las Vegas following an extensive period of systems-wide testing.
"This is a brand new facility and we worked around the clock to ensure that all systems were operational before transferring our plants", commented Mr. Tim Spencer, Director of Cultivation. According to them, the new facility allows the Company to cultivate five times the amount of cannabis flower that was previously produced to meet the high demand for its branded flower and concentrate products under the Alternative Medicine Association (AMA) line, which are sold in licensed dispensaries in Nevada. AMA also produces well-known brands such as Gotti's Gold, Kurupt's Moonrocks, and Denver Dab Co. under licensing agreements. "The increased flower production in the new facility will meet growing demand for premium cannabis products and will have a significant impact on the Company's bottom line," they explain.
The Company will welcome OG DNA Genetics (DNA) to its new facility. "DNA selected AMA as its partner in Nevada due to the Company's advanced facility, extensive distribution channels and high-quality standards," they further explain. "DNA will provide specific expertise to AMA for the development of a consistent phenotype strain for a new line of co-branded flower and pre-rolls."
"We have constructed a one-of-a-kind, purpose-built facility, integrated with the latest technology to increase yields, bolster plant health and assure the consistency and quality of our products", said Mr. Chris Rebentisch, CEO. "As experienced cultivators, we understand that controlling the growing environment is the most important part of cultivating high-quality craft cannabis at scale, which is why we spent significant time, capital and management's time to build a state-of-the-art indoor facility. We are investing in assets that will provide a continuous supply of the raw materials necessary to produce our premium cannabis products and improve our margins".
In order to verify that the plants are receiving exact amounts of nutrients and moisture content, the facility was outfitted with drip automation in order to standardize cultivation techniques and implement efficient watering and feeding systems with waste reduction in mind. "We can exactly measure the water and air content, meaning we are driving each plant's growth with actual data instead of subjective opinion. This level of refinement is further testament to our commitment to consistent quality," added Mr. Spencer.
Once the cannabis plants are situated in the new facility, they will vegetate for approximately four weeks before the flower cycle is begun for another eight weeks. The next steps include harvesting, drying, packaging and third-party testing. The entire cycle takes approximately 16 weeks.
