State-of-the-Art Marijuana Grow Facility in Fayette County, PA
Uses Starco Lighting and Saves!

 

Being one of only 25 approved medical  marijuanna growers/processors in the state of Pennsylvania, this state-of-the-art facility was designed to cultivate over 20,000 sq-ft of flowering canopy using a vertical grow methodology. The group behind this facility, mostly Pennsylvania locals, recieved the highest score overall for both rounds on thier application to the state, eventually procuring their license from the state of Pennsylvania in July of 2018.

“We are committed to providing the highest quality and most effective medical marijuana products to the residents of Pennsylvania who suffer from qualifying medical conditions,” said the Executive Vice President. “Ultimately, our goal is to help improve patients’ health and overall quality of life.”

This group produces distillate cartridges, flower and RSO products. Their RSO in particular is what they consider one of their specialties. RSO is a full-spectrum cannabis extract that is fully decarboxylated and ready to use. Utilizing an ethanol extraction process, they refine the marijuana oil twice, giving the product more of an amber color as opposed to the traditional black. For them, this arguably makes it a better-tasting and potent medicine recommended for oral consumption.
