The cannabis industry is booming. With 37 US states regulating cannabis products for medical use and 19 states offering fully legal recreational cannabis, combined sales are expected to reach $33 billion by 2022.1 

There’s never been a better time to break into the industry, but the road to opening a cannabis facility can be treacherous without the right partner. Besides the many legal and regulatory hurdles to clear, there’s the challenge of constructing a quality cannabis facility.

Facility Types

There are three main types of facilities in the cannabis industry: cultivation, vertically integrated, and dispensaries. Prospiant handles 2 of the 3 types of facilities and each type of cannabis facility comes with its own design and engineering features and unique challenges to operate.

Cultivation (Greenhouses/Indoor Grow)

Cultivation facilities are used to farm cannabis plants. These cannabis facilities have strict requirements for airflow, temperature, and humidity control in order to grow the best product.

Additionally, an HVAC system is usually needed to mitigate the spread of dust and strong odors in a cultivation center, especially in commercial areas. 

Ensuring predictable, consistent growth is the ultimate goal of a growth and cultivation facility.

Vertically Integrated

Vertically integrated facilities have cultivation, and extraction facilities as well as a dispensary.

There are many safety considerations that must be taken into account when constructing an extraction room or facility. Depending on the type of extraction method, certain safety measures should be taken into consideration. If using CO2, proper ventilation is needed. If using butane or ethanol, a C1D2 room is required. This type of room can be costly but is required for safety reasons.
