TORONTO, June 11, 2019 /CNW/ – Flower One Holdings Inc. (“Flower One” or the “Company”) (CSE: FONE) (OTCQX: FLOOF) today announces the completion of its inaugural cannabis harvest at the company’s 455,000 square-foot commercial-scale greenhouse facility – the largest in the state of Nevada. With the greenhouse now 100 per cent canopied, the Company has commenced an expected ongoing harvest averaging 10,000 high-quality, hydroponically-grown cannabis plants per zone. This, in conjunction with the completion of the greenhouse’s adjoining 55,000 square-foot cannabis production facility, has well positioned Flower One for the active cultivation and processing of over 100,000 plants housed in eight flower zones, per crop cycle, amounting to an expected 140,000 lbs (or 62,500 kg) of dry flower per year.
“What a surreal and memorable day for the Flower One team. With a completed production facility, and operations now in full swing, we are proud to have completed Flower One’s inaugural harvest today, initiating our ongoing harvest and paving our ability to become the state’s leading provider of high-quality, hydroponically-grown cannabis,” said President and CEO, Ken Villazor. “Not long ago, this facility was used to grow cucumbers. It has been incredibly exciting to witness the complete transformation of Flower One’s greenhouse for cannabis production at scale. Growing healthy crops with a significant yield requires a broad team of dedicated professionals to deliver results. To now be able to observe the fully built production capacity – and the significance of our contribution to Nevada’s budding cannabis market – is a huge milestone for Flower One. We could not be happier with the results.”
Flower One’s expansive, 455,000 square-foot facility has been purposefully designed for the cultivation, processing, production and high-volume custom packing of retail cannabis product for its licensed brand partners, including dry flower, pre-rolls, cannabis oils, distillates, concentrates, edibles, topicals, and infused products.
