The move completes the last step of the construction project the company initiated to expand cannabis cultivation in Las Vegas.
“The completion of our new cultivation facility marks an incredible milestone for our Alternative Medicine Association (AMA) subsidiary”, CEO Chris Rebentisch stated.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to move into our new facility and begin operations. This is a 5x increase in flower cultivation to fuel the growth of our proprietary AMA branded products and deliver on our white label contracts. Securing a consistent supply of raw materials will have a positive effect on our margins and future revenues and will enable us to attract additional partners,” Rebentisch added.
New Cannabis Facility
The 67,750-sq.-ft. building is spread over two floors and is zoned as a Light Manufacturing – M-1 facility. This will be one of the largest indoor facilities in Las Vegas.
It was designed to house 15 bloom rooms, three veg rooms and one clone room. The initial operating canopy will be 22,100 sq. ft. with the ability to expand into another 18,000 sq. ft., if needed.
On average, the grow cycle is approximately 15 weeks. Once capacity is reached with all 15 flower rooms filled, the company expects to harvest approximately 1,500 plants every 14 days for a projected 700-800 lbs. of flower per month.
The facility includes a 12,000-gallon Reverse Osmosis Storage system. This feature is significant as the Las Vegas municipal water has a high mineral content and cultivating with clean water is essential for plant health. In addition, the volume of water stored allows the company to mitigate the risk of a service interruption.
Upon securing the transfer of its cultivation license to the new facility, 26 plant varieties, 5,000 clones, and 200 moms will be transported to propagate the new facility and commence operations, according to 1933 Industries.
