The proposal recommends states in America, as well as Indian Tribes, submit federal and regulatory plans in their specific territory for hemp production services. Reasons for this come from the recent rapid growth and high demand for CBD, leading to an increase in hemp production as well as the increase in hemp prices.

A consistent consumer experience and cannabis product with David Kessler SVP Horticultural Solutions, TriGrow. Our guest is part of a company that has created a solution to deliver a consistent consumer experience and cannabis product. Their software and hardware solutions will standardize and help to automate the cannabis cultivation process. TriGrow’s cannabis cultivation solution hardware and software are meant to standardize and automate cultivation. The software solution allows for a consistent product regardless of the location of the cultivation facility so that MMJ’s customers can have a similar consumption experience no matter where they buy the product. Not unlike McDonald’s and Coca-Cola. The consistency is also beneficial from a business standpoint as it gives the grower some predictability and that allows the company to have reliable information which helps with business planning. Green Market Report reported on the grow facilities, but what set this one apart was the vertical stacking of the TriGrow units. It’s typical to see rolling tables to maximize the floor space, but stacked tables with catwalks really maximize the amount of yield a producer can get from a warehouse space with tall ceilings. These units can be stacked three high which can increase the yield by 7.8 times and they are like Lego pieces. The units can be stacked on top of each other or linked side by side and each comes complete with its own set of lights. There is a catwalk system that comes with vertical stacking.

Our guest is the CEO of a new company working on building an integrated portfolio of cannabis retail dispensaries, cultivation facilities, offering iconic, inspiring hand-crafted cannabis brands, delivered in an unsurpassed retail experience. When we look at cannabis becoming a global emerging commoditized market in the future, we actually took a step back. As opposed to taking a traditional MSO approach – which everyone else has done, and I think it’s very overworked – we needed to really look at what the big picture is…and the big picture, if you really want to be a player, is global positioning. You can’t really compete unless you have equal footing. Brian recently received all necessary licenses required to begin the construction of a cannabis camp in Adelanto, California. This base camp will significantly enhance Ikänik’s ability to serve key verticals such as cultivation, extraction, and distribution in California’s multi-billion-dollar legal cannabis market.
