We mentioned in our last post that our LED research for MMJ growing was leading to an exciting announcement. Now it’s time to let the cat out of the bag. As many of you may already know, New York State is approved for medical marijuana growing as of July 1st, 2015 (yesterday!). We’re thrilled to say that we’ve partnered with Etain, and are in the running for one of the state’s few MMJ growing licenses.
Etain is a family-run company based in upstate New York. Amy, Hilary, and Keeley Peckham, who founded Etain, hope to use the company revitalize the economically struggling area in Warren County. The Peckhams worked incredibly hard to put together the 1,500 page application with our support. If the project goes forward, we will be serving as the hydroponics consultants for their company, designing systems, and teaching Etain the best practices for growing. We hope to develop custom trainings on this subject — just as soon as we’re granted the approval to do so!
The state will be announcing the recipients of the licenses next week. To say that this represents a major development for us, both as a company and as a state, doesn’t even begin to express our excitement. We’re hoping to get back to you with excellent news very soon.
