Colorado based Green House

INTRO

Colorado-based Greenhouse (CBG) is a Colorado licensed cannabis cultivator that operates (4) 10,000 sq/ft light deprivation with supplemental lighting greenhouses. CBG’s nutrient program consisted of mixing granular nutrients in addition to several organic additives, which was designed as a low cost nutrient program. CBG ran a true side by side trial (same greenhouse, same time, same strains, same everything) in one full greenhouse to evaluate the results with nutrients being the only difference between the two plant sets.

SUMMARY

The Rx Green Technologies’ nutrient program increased profitability in excess of $20,000 per greenhouse per cycle while increasing nutrient costs by $3,000. Production figures represent an increased profit of $250,000 per annum.

TRIAL DATA

Rx Green Technologies’ increased dry flower weight by an average of 14.80% and dry trim weight by and average of 10.05%, over 252 plants and 9 varieties (see reverse side for additional details).
