MedMen recently converted a traditional single-tier cultivation facility using high pressure sodium (HPS) lights into a multi-tier vertical grow light farm using Fluence SPYDR and RAZR LED lighting systems. See more: https://fluence.science/medmen/
The new facility is optimized to increase revenue per square foot, with all phases of plant cultivation — from propagation to bloom — growing under Fluence vertical LED lights.
This transformation has:
-Decreased cycle time on eight-week strains by up to 25 percent, reducing production time by 5 to 7 days for retail flower market and by 12 to 14 days for oil-extraction and derivatives markets.
-Reduced the cost per pound of finished product by 300 percent.
-Decreased energy consumption per light fixture by 40 percent, going from approximately 1,100 watts per light to 660 watts per light.
-Reduced heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) load by approximately 35 percent per square foot of canopy.
-More than doubled production per square foot; reduced land requirements by 50 percent.
-Increased crop yield by 157 percent while reducing water and fertilizer usage.
-Improved consistent, year-round flower quality and chemotype with denser trichrome development.
MedMen Management offers turnkey solutions to cannabis license holders in the areas of cultivation, extraction, production and retail operations.
