TransCanna has introduced the first plants into its crop management site today – a greenhouse in Wesley, California.
The Company partnered with the 3rd generation cannabis farmers at 365 CannaFarms to consult on the construction of the state-of-the-art, computer-controlled greenhouse and to help manage the crop for the client, Central Valley Growers. The entire crop is comprised of premium genetic strains from Lyfted Farms, TransCanna‘s wholly-owned subsidiary.
“This project combines the ‘best-in-class’ expertise of Cannabis 365, who is famous in the industry for their ability to cultivate top-shelf greenhouse flower and our Lyfted Farms Master Cultivators who are famous for their strains and expertise in cultivating top-shelf indoor flower,” said Bob Blink, TransCanna CEO.
The client, Central Valley Growers, is a family-run company with over 25 years of history in traditional agriculture that had sought out Lyfted Farms specifically for its potent, premium genetic strains. The contract began this summer and involved advising on the construction of a 22,000 square foot, fully automated light deprivation glass greenhouse with computer-controlled light curtains, cooling, heating, and humidity systems.
Central Valley Growers is using Lyfted Farms genetics with the intent to produce live resin and cured resin concentrates, which require the highest quality strains and cultivation parameters. Producing live resin also requires high-quality cold storage of the freshly cut plant, which TransCanna will also provide.
“This project is a perfect example of what we can offer 3rd party cannabis growers: crop management, processing, and cold storage services all in one contract,” said Mr. Blink.
The Company can also provide packaging, white labeling, and distribution services throughout the State of California.
“This first successful contract will be a shining example of what we can offer California growers,” said Mr. Blink. “We intend to be the go-to ‘one-stop-shop’ for indoor and greenhouse growers throughout the state.”
California currently has 3,637 licensed cannabis greenhouse cultivation sites.
