US: Michigan-based growing facility doubling production

Just outside the city of Manistee, in Brown Township, lies a farm, but not the kind that one might expect. This farm is the primary one-stop-shop for the cannabis provisioning center, Authentic 231. Almost all of the products that can be bought at Authentic 231 come from the complex in Brown Township. The plants are all grown and cultivated at the farm, the cannabis oil and THC extracted, and the final products processed and packaged at the sprawling complex. 

The grow facility holds five Class C AU grow licenses and one Class C Medical Grow License license. The farm currently has 11,500 plants. McKenzie said they plan to double the number of plants to 23,000.

On April 8, 2020, the Brown Township Board of Trustees adopted an ordinance to allow certain cannabis establishments in the township under the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act (MCL 333.27951) of 2018. The type of establishments approved includes growers, processors and secure transporters.

Willie McKenzie, CEO, and co-founder of Left Coast Holdings said that the company employs 20 people to grow and cultivate the cannabis plant. Eighteen more are employed at the extraction facility. He said construction on the facility began in May 2020, and it was licensed in November 2020.
