TPZ Ventures, LLC., DBA Tropizen, a Puerto Rico – based medical cannabis cultivator and manufacturer, announced the harvest of its first crop, which will be available for purchase by medical cannabis patients from dispensaries throughout the island.
The crop was groundbreaking for Tropizen, with a yield 50% higher than projected. The final crop consisted of 32 strains, many of which are rare or have not been available to Puerto Rico’s patients.
“Like many in Puerto Rico, we endured difficulties faced after Hurricane Maria, which makes this harvest an even more rewarding milestone,” Jay Meistrell, CEO of Tropizen said. “We are excited to be a part of this growing industry, and very proud of our hard-working team. We look forward to releasing our next round of unique products to benefit Puerto Rico’s medical cannabis patients.”
The 22,000 square foot facility is state-of-the art, raising the bar for cannabis cultivation and manufacturing in Puerto Rico. Plants benefit from integrated cultivation controls and full electrical and irrigation backup. Tropizen is expanding their indoor cultivation, as well as building new outdoor cultivation in two adjacent acres in 2018.
Leslie Brocskor, Founder and President of Electrum Partners, an advisory services firm specializing in medical and recreational cannabis businesses said, “Tropizen is one of the most well-designed facilities I’ve seen, making it perfectly positioned to be a dominant player in the market.”
Tropizen is slated to release a wide array of medical cannabis products in the coming months, including edibles, oils, and topicals, formulated to meet the specific needs of patients.
