Located along the central coast of California you’ll find farms of berries, lettuce, and garlic. That is, until you hit Sparx Cannabis in Monterey County. The family-owned and vertically-integrated cannabis lifestyle company has recently announced the acquisition of multiple licenses that allow the company to cultivate and distribute cannabis and cannabis-derived product across the state of California.

Who is Sparx Cannabis?
Sparx Cannabis sets out to be the premium flower producer for the everyday cannabis consumer. Dedicated to being a leader in the industry, the company plans to do so by implementing multiple unique and sustainable practices throughout its technologically-advanced and solar-powered greenhouses.

“We have some of the most advanced technologies and greenhouses on our Sparx Cannabis properties, and these licenses will help us not only create and grow our products but distribute it statewide,” said Sparx Cannabis Co-founder Chandler Halpern. “We have incredible locations in one of the most fertile areas in the entire country to grow and greenhouses that are unlike anything that has been built on the central coast of California. With these licenses, we are planting our flag in the rapidly evolving cannabis industry.”

With the distribution licenses, Sparx Cannabis plans to sell various high-quality sativa and indica-based products through dispensaries state-wide.

Environmentally-controlled automated cannabis facilities

Sparx Cannabis has over 100,000 square feet of cultivation space that is divided between two environmentally-controlled automated cannabis facilities. The first, Harkins Grow, is currently in the fifth harvest and each harvest has been producing approximately 600 pounds of high-quality cannabis flower. At Harkins Grow, the facility also has the ability to produce clones.   

At this cultivation site, the 3,800 plants are trimmed by hand to ensure the high standards Sparx Cannabis has for its products is met. The site also utilizes state-of-the-art drying containers that are able to dry the product more efficiently than other methods on the market.

Sparx Farms is the second sustainable cultivation site the lifestyle cannabis company operates. This location has one of the newest state-of-the-art greenhouses and over 10,000 clones. The company plans to harvest every two weeks.

Along with producing quality cannabis flower for California, Sparx Cannabis has a commitment to the community. The company looks forward to creating jobs in the Monterey County and adding open positions to the booming industry. According to a recent report more than 10,000 jobs will be added to California’s cannabis market in 2019.

The Sparx Cannabis Plan for the Future

Sparx Cannabis Co-founder and President Jared Helfant said, “The newly acquired licenses for cultivation and distribution will allow Sparx Cannabis to truly expand our presence in the cannabis sector with the high-quality cannabis flower that we strive to provide to our customers. With these licenses we have acquired, we are excited to demonstrate to the cannabis community the quality of our products and further establish our everyday cannabis lifestyle brand.”

In addition to producing high-quality cannabis for the everyday consumer, the company wants to eliminate the stigma that has followed the industry for decades. They plan to do so by being a community-focused company that strives to be as eco-friendly as possible. They are proud to be one of the first farms to have technologically-advanced greenhouses and state-of-the-art LED lighting that provides the highest-quality nutrients for the plant.
