Humboldt County is part of the largest cannabis-producing region in the United States. It has been on the forefront of marijuana since the 1970s as the climate is especially conducive to cultivation.

Flower from the area carries a “proof of origin” labeling, guaranteeing quality across the supply chain. California law protects this proof of origin and from a branding perspective the value of such proof of origin will only increase in value over time as more states and international markets become available.

It is known to produce some of the highest quality marijuana in the world with great flavor. Marijuana grown here carries “Proof of Origin” labeling. It is estimated that 20% of residents in Humboldt County make a livelihood off cannabis.
$2.3M IN CAPITAL INVESTED
The founders have invested over $2.3M to build out the licensure to date and construction at this facility. All PP&E, including domain names (“DesignerDrugs.com”) will be transferred upon sale. The building was thoughtfully designed for extraction, manufacturing, processing, cold-storage, lab space, and distribution. The power supply is 800 amps, 220v – 600v.
The arduous licensing process takes four to five years to complete, as the regulations for volatile manufacturing is especially stringent. The founders have worked with the state agencies to construct a facility for which the annual licensure should be made available and invested heavily to ensure safety and functionality. The prospective purchaser should have familiarity with state licensure requirements as well as any prospective buyer will be required to provide change of ownership information to the state as the sales transaction progresses through escrow.
