Largest Cannabis Producers in North America (2018)


Growers Network is committed to spreading knowledge about all aspects of the commercial cannabis industry, including growing, dispensaries, extractions, and more. In this article, Growers Network explores some of the largest cannabis growers in North America as part of an ongoing look at the commercial cannabis industry as a whole. If you would like to read last year’s article, check it out here.

If you feel there is a grow operation that is not listed but belongs on the list, or if any information is inaccurate, use the information below to contact us. We intend to keep this list updated through 2018 with the biggest cannabis operations!


Selection Criteria



When we first started this project back in late 2016, we considered many criteria, including wet and dry biomass, raw weight per yield, number of plants, number of different strains, THC content, and more. During our research and initial contact phases, it became clear that most companies are not willing to divulge the majority of this information, assuming they even measured it. Some of these measurements are also hard to measure objectively and verify.

In the end, we decided that square footage was the most objective means of measuring these grow operations’ capacities. While we recognize that some grow systems and growers have the potential to increase their yields without changing their size, we also realize that when talking about commercial volumes of cannabis, most differences tend to average out.

Additionally, we also recognize that the cannabis industry is in a massive period of growth. As such, we have separated the data into two formats: Current Square Footage and Future Square Footage. In both the table and written sections below, we have made sure to delineate the difference. All “Future Square Footage” that is listed is predicted in the 2018-2019 years, as projections beyond that point become unreliable.

You may be wondering… why didn’t we place XYZ Company on the list?
  1. The simple answer is that we may not have been aware of said company’s size. We’ve reached out to as many growers as we reasonably could, but there are many growers who we are unaware of. If you are familiar with such a company, and they are interested in having their presence listed here, please let us know by emailing us at [email protected].
  2. Another reason may be that a company simply refused to participate. As a courtesy, we reached out to as many growers on this list as we could for their input. Some companies declined to be involved in this list. Some simply did not reply with the information we needed.
  3. Some companies are not legally allowed to divulge information about their growing facilities. This depends on the locality, of course, but we respect their legal concerns. Other companies worry about the federal government’s stance on cannabis.

If you feel our information is inaccurate or our rankings are wrong, please contact us!
