iLAVA Announces Arizona Cultivation & Production Lease Opportunity

iLAVA of Arizona owns 100% of a cultivation and processing license and is now requesting proposals for a financed operator with cultivation experience to enter one of America’s top cannabis markets. Our ideal partner must be focused on quality control, compliance, and has experience designing and building out cannabis cultivation operations. The Arizona medical marijuana program and upcoming adult use initiative do not limit cultivation canopy size or limit plant count. Arizona’s population is over 7.2 million as of 2019.

 

 Over 190,000 lbs. of medical marijuana is sold per year in the Arizona cannabis market. In May 2020, cannabis sales in Arizona’s medical dispensaries reached $93 million, growing seven percent from April. There are currently over 245,000 registered medical marijuana patients in Arizona and patient cards are valid for 2 years.

The iLAVA management team opened The Downtown Dispensary in 2013 which has won Best of Tucson® in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2019. The iLAVA team currently operates 2 dispensaries and an industrial medical marijuana cultivation/production facility with 120+ employees in Tucson. iLAVA products are also distributed in 80+ dispensaries statewide including the bestselling topical in Arizona, iLAVA Touch, in addition to our vape cartridges & extracts. Arizona currently has 126 operating dispensaries statewide.

The iLAVA distribution network and the product expertise of our retail staff will be available to our potential partners. This opportunity includes cultivation and can include marijuana product manufacturing & distribution depending on negotiated deal terms.

Due to Arizona’s medical marijuana laws and our internal practices, any qualified individuals must be able to pass a criminal background check and provide proof of funding upon request.

This opportunity is being listed by the iLAVA management team (Moe Asnani & Chip Boyden) and not by a broker or third party.

New Bulk Cannabis Drying System Released

This is a paid post. Contact [email protected] for more information.

ABM Equipment of Vancouver, WA has developed a new system which dries up to 10,000 lbs. of cannabis per hour with minimal loss of cannabinoids. This is a significant improvement over last year’s larger and more expensive tumbler & belt dryers, which burned more CBD and energy respectively.

ABM’s process accepts fresh or baled whole plants, shreds it to <2”, and meters the hemp into fluid-bed dryers. The premium biomass is then separated from the stalk and packaged for extraction.

This method is able to retain more cannabinoids because it uses heat as an accelerant rather than a primary driver of evaporation, thereby burning less CBD. Additionally, the majority of lost trichomes are captured and returned to each batch instead of accumulating on the wall of the dryer or being lost into the environment.

Fluid beds are also distinct in that they push air up through the product (instead of pulling it alone). When combined with the vibration of the bed, this principle fluidizes and maximizes the hemp’s exposure to air. When air is pulled from above, concentrated air streams are formed which need more time to remove the inevitable wet spots.

ABM Equipment Co. Inc. is a systems development and integration firm with 40 years’ experience in bulk processing and hundreds of proprietary solutions in place for large players in the food and pharma industries. ABM believes these technologies will help bring the cannabis industry up-to-speed with efficiencies being achieved in other sectors.

“Now that cannabis is being grown in the volume needed for large scale processing, leveraging the most controlled and efficient systems will be crucial” said Jeff Walling, owner of ABM Equipment. Regarding their system he went on to say, “We’re extremely confident that this approach will provide some of the best results in the industry.”
