New lab to produce a wide range of cannabis products including but not limited to full spectrum oils, distillate, cannabis-derived terpenes, concentrates, and a wide range of top performing branded cannabis products such as vape pens, edibles, and topicals
LAS VEGAS, Sept. 16, 2019 /CNW/ – Flower One Holdings Inc. ("Flower One" or the "Company") (CSE: FONE) (OTCQX: FLOOF), a leading cannabis cultivator, producer and innovator in Nevada, today announced the official, operational launch of its technologically advanced cannabis production lab which will operate alongside the Company's 400,000 square-foot greenhouse.
The new production space encompasses approximately 55,000 square feet and can readily consume between 3,000 – 5,000 pounds of biomass per week – with distillate processing from its ethanol extraction train in the 100-150 liter per week range. Today's announcement enhances Flower One's ability to generate product from its more than 140,000 pounds (62,500 kg) of dry cannabis flower and trim expected annually from the greenhouse.
Thomas Rosengren, Director of Extraction & Production reported: "The Launch of Flower One's bulk distillate process train has been a resounding success – with early lot potencies already testing in the 90%+ range."
Flower One's production lab has been intentionally designed for large-scale product fulfillment. By leveraging multiple extraction methods – namely ethanol, LPG, and CO2 – that run in parallel, Flower One has access to three upstream extraction channels, granting it the flexibility to leverage the specific extraction techniques needed to produce a wide range of cannabis products. Beyond extraction, the lab will engage in refinement, compounding, and commercial-kitchen-related activities, including ongoing optimization via data-driven continuous improvement processes.
"The product and test results coming out of the lab mark another huge milestone for Flower One and our ability to produce premium quality cannabis products" said Kellen O'Keefe, Chief Strategy Officer at Flower One. "Flower One is thrilled to bring some of the nation's leading cannabis brands to Nevada's retailers and consumers," he added.
