MedMen – Los Angeles, California

MedMen — Los Angeles, California

In the second issue of our Grow Operation Overview series, we interview Damian Solomon, the Ag Technology & Systems Director for MedMen. Damian has a background in commercial agriculture, with an emphasis on commercial-scale, controlled-environment agriculture. He has worked for some of North America’s largest hydroponic greenhouse operations and was the NAFTA region greenhouse expert for international vegetable seed company DeRuiter Seeds.

MedMen is a company with the express purpose of “mainstreaming marijuana by fundamentally changing the way cannabis businesses are capitalized, built and managed.” MedMen is based in Los Angeles, California and has operations and investments extending throughout North America, including Canada, California, Nevada, and New York. They recently broke ground on a new cultivation facility in Nevada measuring 45,000 square feet.

The following is an interview with an industry leader. Growers Network does not endorse nor evaluate the claims of our interviewees, nor do they influence our editorial process. We thank our interviewees for their time and effort so we can continue our exclusive Growers Spotlight service.

    MedMen is a growing company based in Los Angeles, California. The company currently manages two indoor cultivation facilities; one in the Sun Valley area of Los Angeles with 4,100 square feet of canopy, and a second facility in Utica, New York. The company is also managing construction of a new greenhouse cultivation and production facility outside of Reno, Nevada that measures 45,000 square feet and is expected to open in the summer of 2017. A similar greenhouse project is slated to start construction in Desert Hot Springs, California in the summer of 2017.
