MARKS FIRST TIME BRAND’S CULTIVATION IS AVAILABLE AS A VAPING EXPERIENCE

California, March 11th, 2019 /AxisWire/ Clean cannabis company Dr. Robb Farms is releasing its first oil cartridge under the Rove Featured Farms line. Featured Farms is Rove’s signature 100% cannabis terpene line featuring single-source oil comprising the freshest, purest strains derived from high-quality flower—the only ingredient. Dr. Robb Farms’ limited edition run features the White Widowcultivar marking the first time the brand’s highly sought after flower is available as a vaping experience.

Product development took 6 months because of the high standards of Dr. Robb Farm’s Founder and CEO Robert Flannery, Ph.D. “We knew we wanted to use a classic cultivar with a strong terpene profile to take full advantage of Rove’s proprietary extraction methodology,” explains Dr. Flannery. “We finally settled on this particular White Widowcultivar and the results have been phenomenal.”

Using Rove’s finely-tuned CO2 extraction processes, they are able to capture the pure, original terpenes from the flower cultivated by Dr. Robb Farms. Using mild heat and pressure, they then carefully extract the oil. In the final step, the original raw terpenes and pure golden oil are recombined in a cartridge specifically designed to highlight the flower’s true and complex nature for an unparalleled vaping experience.

“We believe that this collaboration with Dr. Robb Farms will be the first of many as we continue to develop a deeper relationship with their organization,” says Rove president Paul Jacobson. “Look for more collaborations to come in the future.”

During the massive gathering of cannabis industry leaders at Marijuana Business Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, the leading women came together to honor the achievements of their peers. The 2nd Annual Industry Power Women Awards, the ceremony aimed to recognize the accomplishments of women in the cannabis industry; from entrepreneurs and investors to influencers and advocates, commenced.

The award ceremony was hosted by the group Industry Power Women (IPW) and made possible with generous sponsors that included Dr. Robb Farms, High Times Holding Company, Organa Brands, Regs Technology (Cannaregs), Skunk Factory, Mood33, Passport Cannabis, The GoldQ, CH3 Ventures, Greenhouse Ventures, Saka Wines and Pink Haze.

IPW was founded in 2017 and is an organization established to help advance female businesswomen in cannabis. IPW aims to elevate and empower female entrepreneurship within the cannabis industry by creating a support network of like-minded individuals.

Attending the invite-only ceremony was an assortment of women from across the industry and all walks of life. These women include founders, CEOs, C-suite executives, trade organization leaders and community organizers.

Green Market Report co-founder and CEO, Debra Borchardt, and managing partner of KCSA Strategic Communications as well as the founder of AxisWire, Cynthia Salarizadeh acted as hostesses for the event. The first to take home an award was Kristin Hope for the Rising Star Award. At just 15 years old, Hope became the first person to launch a pharmaceutical grade hemp beauty line, HOOP, and was most recently nominated for the Bell scholarship.

The next award recipient was Gaynell Rogers, who won Influencer of the Year. As one of the most respected voices in public relations, Rogers has worked with some of the best and brightest in the cannabis industry; including Harborside Health’s Co-Founder Steve DeAngelo.

Outside of the cannabis industry, Rogers is also known for her work as the senior publicist for Lucasfilm and the Head of Feature Film Publicity at Pixar for the first “Incredibles” and “Cars.”

For her outstanding work as a cannabis advocate, Amy T. Margolis was granted the 2018 Leadership Award. Margolis is the founder of the Oregon Cannabis Association, which is one of the largest trade organizations in the cannabis industry.

Most recently, Margolis was also named by Cannabis Business Executive (CBE) as one of the 2017’s 100 Most Powerful Political People in Cannabis and one of the 50 Most Important Women in Cannabis in both 2016 and 2017.

Taking the prize for Advocate of the Year was Wanda James. As an outspoken political voice and serial entrepreneur, James has been honored by High Times Magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in Cannabis and was also named as one of the 50 Most Important Women in the Cannabis Industry by CBE.

Emily Paxhia, co-founder and Managing Partner of Poseidon Asset Management, was named IPW’s Investor of the Year. Throughout her career, Paxhia has reviewed thousands of cannabis companies and has always taken the time to uplift promising female entrepreneurs by helping them shape their pitch preparations, go-to-market strategies/ product launches, and advised on day-to-day business operations.

Taking the Industry Power Women top honor of 2018 Business Woman of the Year was Jessica Billingsley. Billingsley is the Co-Founder and CEO of MJ Freeway Business Solutions; a technology company that provides software solutions to cannabis firms, as well as small-business, consulting services and application license support. In addition to her entrepreneurial accomplishments, Billingsley has also been named to Fortune Magazine’s list of Top 10 Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs.

Following the ceremony, many of the attendees would later recount with exuberance how empowered the event made them feel. For many, this event stood out as one of the few places where they could be with other women and talk about their trade. In an industry that continues to be dominated by men, that matters; and it only serves to highlight the continued relevance, and need, for ceremonies like the Industry Power Women Awards.

Cannaplexes to be fully operational by Spring, 2019

October 25, 2018, Los Angeles /AxisWire/ California based Dr. Robb Farms announced today that it has broken ground on the first of three new innovative facilities transforming the landscape of cannabis. The clean cannabis company has raised a total $24 million for the development and operation of three independent 45,000-square-foot hybrid indoor cannabis farms within the Coachillin complex. Each of the independent lots will incorporate and license the Dr. Robb Farms proprietary standard operating procedures to ensure best-in-class cultivation practices developed by Dr. Robert Flannery, the first PhD in the United States with the technical training and expertise in commercial cannabis cultivation.

Each hybrid indoor cultivation facility is being built with industrial steel, MgO SIPS panels and a UV-transmitting acrylic roof. Each facility will boast leading production capabilities, producing over 1,100 pounds of premium flower per month. Each facility will be able to produce six complete grow cycles a year via its proprietary controlled environment that allows for temperature and humidity optimization, and supplemental light manipulation while also utilizing the power of natural full spectrum UV derived from the Sun.

“This is a win-win for both operators and consumers as these facilities will enable us to deliver premium product at a great price, says Robert Flannery, Ph.D, founder of Dr. Robb Farms. “The natural UVA and UVB light allows for more complex and complete terpene and cannabinoid production which results in higher quality flower with more sophisticated taste and nose, and we have A.I.-driven micro CO2 injections, integrated pest management, improved water use and operational efficiencies which leads to decreased cost of goods sold (COGS).” he continued.

Coachillin, the most advanced Cannabusiness complex in California, is a 160-acre park with a streamlined regulatory environment. When complete, the complex will feature a testing lab, contract manufacturing facility, visitor center with a dispensary, brewhouse and cannabis tasting room.
