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 2017 with the biggest cannabis operations!

Criteria for Selection

Since there are multiple ways to rank grow operations, many criteria were considered. Some of the possibilities included wet and dry biomass, pounds of wet and dry flower per harvest, number of plants, number of different strains, THC content (by percentage of dry mass), and more. Our preliminary research indicated that many companies are unwilling to disclose this information publicly.

In the end, we chose to use square footage and area of the grow operation(s) as an objective and verifiable measurement of size. We decided to make a distinction between the current largest grow operations and upcoming large grow operations. Many operations are currently expanding or entering the field, and our “Near Future” list ranks them by their projected operation size.
