LAS VEGAS – Green & Gold Supply Co., a brand-new cannabis cultivation facility, has begun operations in North Las Vegas. The company incorporates the most advanced indoor growing equipment available and will bring 12-15 unique strains to the Nevada market.
Using hydroponic growing methods with state-of-the-art mechanical and electrical systems, Green & Gold Supply Co. will deliver the highest quality product to medical patients. Its proprietary branded cannabis products will be sold in dispensaries throughout Nevada.
Strains will be brought to market from the best genetics in the world and will be unveiled beginning in the first quarter of 2017. Green & Gold Supply Co. measures in at more than 15,000 square feet and was designed to be more efficient than other growing facilities by its ability to produce 21 percent more cannabis than a typical facility of its size.
“We want to bring the highest quality cannabis to market in Nevada, and operating our own growing facility is the best way to do that,” explained Mitchell Britten, founder and CEO of two THRIVE Cannabis Marketplace dispensaries and the North Las Vegas facility. “A tremendous amount of tradition and science, as well as respect for proven natural remedies, has informed our operations to date. We remain committed to these standards as we work toward propelling the cannabis industry forward in Nevada and beyond.”
Britten relocated his family to Las Vegas two years ago from Colorado, where for more than 6 years he was a leader in developing that state’s medical marijuana industry. There, he served as director of operations for the nation’s largest producer, retailer and employer in both the medical and recreational marijuana industry. For his Nevada enterprises, Britten partnered with long-time Nevadans: Ed Findlay, Julie Murray, chief executive officer/principal, Moonridge Group; and Phillip Peckman, CEO, Peckman Capital, all of whom have years of outstanding business and community service throughout the valley.
Nevada currently honors medical marijuana cards issued by Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, the District of Columbia, and the Ely Shoshone Tribe.
