CORONA, Calif., April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Grow Pod Solutions (www.growpodsolutions.com), the premier developer of technology-enriched automated farms, educated consumers, entrepreneurs and growers at the High Times Southern California Cannabis Cup, held in San Bernardino.
Grow Pod Solutions developed the world’s most advanced indoor farms, utilizing specially repurposed shipping containers, equipping them with new technologies to produce superior quality crops and higher yields, in a secure, remotely managed and monitored environment with a small footprint that can be located virtually anywhere.
The company provided a sneak peek at the technology incorporated in the new GrowPod CVX – a self-contained, transportable growing environment specially customized for the cannabis industry. Thousands of patrons came through the booth and saw actual plants in varying stages of development.
Grow Pod’s micro lab environments will grow vegetables, herbs and produce of all kinds, as well as cannabis.
The Nation’s Largest Market
GrowPod’s technology works with all kinds of agricultural products and is ideally suited for the Californiacannabis industry, which is expected to be worth $50 billion, according to Bloomberg.
“California is destined to do with cannabis what we’ve done with every other fruit and vegetable, and that’s take half of the national market,” Steve DeAngelo, executive director of Harborside – one of the nation’s largest marijuana dispensaries – told the New York Times.
Scalability and Ease of Acquisition
California voters approvedrecreational marijuana in November, but lawmakers are still working out regulations, including the question of whether to put a cap on the size of farms.
“GrowPod is the perfect solution for many growers and entrepreneurs,” said George Natzic, President of Grow Pod Solutions. “The cost of entry is remarkably low – especially compared to other forms of farming – and it is fully scalable. Expanding an operation is as simple as picking up the phone and ordering another container,” he said. “Plus, we are the only scalable growing solution that is not affected by weather, seasons, or geography. A GrowPod can go anywhere – from an urban area, to a desert, to the mountains or the coast.”
