We learned early on that seed production cannot be done outdoors. This not only prevents our neighbors from getting pollinated, but also prevents our neighbors' pollen from contaminating our seed stock. Rogue pollen will not only create non-feminized seed, it can also have come from high-THC plants, raising the risk for "hot" non-compliant offspring (not our genetics). For us, this means we work in entirely sealed environments, specifically built for cannabis seed production. For farmers, this means a reliable offspring.
We started building on a new facility less than a year ago and we are thrilled at how far our progress has come since we broke ground. The now-defunct adult use cannabis facility we acquired was littered with trash. We pulled 15 dumpsters off the property initially and still continue to remove debris daily. Thankfully the team at craft cannabis producer Glory Daze Botanicals came to the rescue to recycle all of the greenhouse material that could be salvaged.
January 10, 2019 - the property was over run with trash, greenhouses still contained carcasses of plants, and several facilities had fire damage.
March 10, 2019 - after removal and several hundred yards of gravel were brought in, the land was leveled
April 20, 2019 - with the concrete slab poured, construction began

Today - Plants live in a completely sealed environment with no air exchange with the outside to prevent outside pollen from contaminating our rooms.
The future of our facilities? Below you can see our newest slabs being poured for the next round of Nexus Greenhouses. We are always growing, always learning.
