US (CT): Cannabis entrepreneur hopes to open 60,000 sq ft grow facility

As one of the first in the state to get a provisional cannabis license, Tiana Hercules is looking for a large facility in Greater Hartford to open her prospective cultivation facility.

Hercules, founder and CEO of social equity micro-cultivator Connecticut Cultivation Solutions said she’s looking for a 60,000-square-foot facility in Hartford or a surrounding municipality to open her cannabis grow operation. Earlier this month, she was issued a 14-month provisional license, which allows her to proceed with efforts to get her business off the ground, including finding an industrial/manufacturing building.

Hercules said she’s been looking at a few different properties in Hartford County and hopes to close on a location soon.

“Once we have a site located, we’ll be looking at local zoning to get those approvals and then begin to build out and retrofit the building,” Hercules said during the Hartford Business Journal’s Sept. 14 cannabis expo. “We will hopefully be one of the first to market.”
