Can Growing Organic Medical Marijuana in an Aquaponics System Be the Solution for Both Growers and Law Enforcement?
Are you in pain? Has this economy (or something else) made you nauseous? Are you fatigued by life? YOU may be candidate for Medical Marijuana in more ways than one. With over 14 states legalizing Medical Marijuana, “Pot Cafes” are one of the fastest growing industries in the United States.
As states move forward in their attempt to legalize Medical Marijuana so that it can be regulated and taxed, many challenges face growers, distributers and dispensaries which have become a whole new cottage industry that Law Enforcement will have to monitor. Since marijuana can be grown just about anywhere, inside or outside, finding ways to monitor growers is going to be the greatest challenge of all. Portable Farms, Inc., is the first company in the world to provide a turn-key solution that provides security, quality control, remote monitoring for county and state agencies, and a new way of growing that is about as “green” as you can get.
Portable Farms™ Organic Aquaponics Medical Marijuana Systems can be customized by correctly sizing the growing space to limit production based on local regulations for year-round growing. Each facility can be monitored using video surveillance cameras, security scanners, and alarm systems. These innovative systems offer a model for both grower and law enforcement to achieve compliance.
These new systems are now available from Portable Farms, Inc. and have been specifically designed for growing the finest organic medical herbs in a fully automated growing system. The units contain deeper grow trays for enhanced plant growth; they offer a scientifically based timed water-flow cycle to meet the unique growing requirements of marijuana. These new systems require fewer fish than a normal aquaponics system, and allow for a wider variety of fish to maintain maximum plant production and quality to ensure a high level of crop and blossom yield.
A 10 x 12’ unit can grow 36 plants to maturity during each 90-day growth cycle. Each 10 x 12’ unit produces 4 crops per year. If a user is only allowed to grow a few marijuana plants at a time, the remainder of the growing area can be dedicated to other herbs such as lettuce, basil, and even tomatoes, etc.
For those authorized to grow and sell to medical marijuana dispensaries, a grower, if allowed, can grow 36 plants (2.25 pounds at maturity) at a time. By using the low wholesale price of US$200 per ounce (US$7.14 per gram), and a yield of 144 ounces or 4082 grams (36 plants x 4 – 90-day cycles) with production of one ounce of product per plant, the gross profit will be approximately US$28,000.
The systems are offered as Do It Yourself Kits from Portable Farms, Inc. and can save customers significant amounts of money on the initial installation costs. They also offer fully installed, turn-key installations anywhere in the world in climatically adapted structures which includes the grow lights and fish for any size unit. Crop variety and seed purchases are left to the customer’s discretion.
