Mississippi medical cannabis growers handcraft for improved quality

Medical cannabis users in Mississippi are getting their first taste of the new medicine, but there is a lot to consider before making a choice in product, starting with where and how it is grown.

Marcel Ebner, CEO and founder of Central Mississippi Cannabis in Jefferson Davis County, said he and co-founders CFO Guion Thomas and Jennifer Langley will be generating small batches of medical cannabis in their engineered grow facility, which simulates a more natural environment. By law, medical cannabis cannot be grown outside, so CMC intends to do the next best thing.

Production will start with a clover cover, and other natural nutrients will be used to create a living soil, which means the microbes introduced to the soil will help feed and replenish itself. The lighting will simulate day-night cycles in the temperature-controlled room.

While that means there will be fewer batches cultivated over a longer growth cycle, Ebner believes the result will be a higher-quality product with a better flavor and smell.
