Unrivaled Brands, Inc. (OTCQX:UNRV), a multi-state vertically integrated cannabis company announced on Wednesday that it has launched operations at its new cultivation facility in Oakland, California.
Designed to supply the Company’s Korova brand with premium, high-potency strains, the state-of-the-art facility has numerous technological improvements over prior cultivation operations. The building contains four flower rooms with sixty lights each and is expected to yield more than 3,500 pounds per year of expertly crafted cannabis flower.
“This is an important building block towards building one of the dominant west coast cannabis companies and importantly, ensures access to high quality, high potency strains in support of our brands,” Unrivaled Brands CEO Frank Kneuttel told Benzinga. In addition to California, Unrivaled Brands has operations in Oregon and Nevada.
Unrivaled Brands is home to Korova, a high potency leader for over 10 years across multiple product categories in California where the company operates three dispensaries, a state-wide distribution network, company-owned brands and a cultivation facility including the newest one opening in Oakland.
“With the planting of specific Korova strains last week, we are pleased to launch our latest cultivation facility, which we expect to increase the supply of cannabis in support of the growth of the Korova brand throughout California,” said Uri Kenig, Unrivaled’s COO. “We are pleased to bring this operation online, which is expected to both triple our estimated annual production and provide us with the unrivaled ability to manage the quality of the flower sold under our brand names.”
