Core One Labs' 50%-owned subsidiary, Agrotech, has harvested 1,600 pounds from the Sacramento farm it manages and has completed drying and testing of the biomass.
"Agrotech has harvested a section of the two- and one-half acre farm in Sacramento," the team with the company explains. "The harvest yielded over 1,600 pounds of biomass which was dried and tested, then processed for classification into flower, which is expected to yield approximately 60%, and trim for both the production of CannaStrips and retail distribution and sales. The remainder of the farm’s crop will continue to provide additional bio-mass late into November."
"The harvest of the farm provided research data and further affirmation of the Company’s ability to cultivate outdoors without the use of pesticides or fungicides. The harvest has received a Certificate of Analysis (“COA”) confirming those positive expectations. Operationally, this harvest is evidence that the Company no longer has to rely on third party cultivations and incur the additional risk and the significant margins that reliance represents. The Company now can produce high quality cannabis without contaminates at a much lower cost outdoors, thereby reducing the cost of goods across all the product lines."
Core One Labs CEO, Brad Eckenweiler, stated, “This outdoor cultivation is one more accomplishment for the Company as it continues to build its expertise and operational structure towards a vertically integrated cannabis company from genetics and seed to the customer’s doorstep.” The current market in California for wholesale flower is between USD$600 and USD$1,200 per pound with a COA confirmation.
