Leave the black lights and Jim Morrison posters in the attic. The methodically cultivated marijuana grown at Nevada Organic Remedies is not your father’s weed.
With a one-of-a-kind watering system, production extraction machine and multiple strains of the plant grown under very specific conditions, the 12 employees and CEO Andrew Jolley harvest up to 50 pounds of “flower” every five days in the Las Vegas grow warehouse — a process that soared to new heights Saturday, when the company’s first matured plants were ripe for the taking.
“We’re constantly improving methods and techniques to get a better, more purer, more desirable product at the end of the day. This is a commercial agriculture facility. It’s not a warehouse; it’s not some dude’s basement grow,” Jolley said.
“Today’s our first harvest.”
On the outside, the commercial agriculture facility looks exactly like a warehouse. It’s in the middle of a south valley industrial area. There are no bright colors or signage, but there are bars on all the windows.
