Rubicon Organics Receives Municipal Permit for the Cultivation & Manufacturing of Cannabis in Greenfield, California

BELLINGHAM, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Rubicon Organics (“Rubicon” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its application to the City of Greenfield for a municipal cultivation and manufacturing permit has been approved. The Company plans to develop a high-tech greenhouse facility of approximately 80,000 square feet. This facility, in addition to the Company’s Washington State facility, will ensure consistent production of low-cost, connoisseur-grade, organic cannabis. Advanced climate-controlled Dutch greenhouses use 90% less energy by using direct sunlight, and, when coupled with Rubicon’s proprietary organic growing system, they will produce 25% to 30% higher yields at a significantly lower cost when compared to conventional, warehouse-style production systems.

“Our core beliefs rest on the notion that the opportunity is now to invest in and develop an energy-efficient, sustainable infrastructure that will create the foundation for ethically produced, high-quality, organic cannabis products for decades to come. With a secure licensed supply chain we can continue to develop, acquire and partner with industry-leading brands and organizations.”
-Jesse McConnell, CEO Rubicon Organics
