Body and Mind Inc. Expands Production Capability in Nevada with New Conditional Use Permit
VANCOUVER, B.C., CANADA (June 20, 2019) – Body and Mind Inc. (CSE: BAMM, OTC PINK: BMMJ) (the “Company” or “BaM”), a multi-state operator in California, Nevada, Ohio and Arkansas, today announced receipt of a conditional use permit from Clark County, Nevada for a new production facility located within one mile of the Pepper Lane cultivation facility.
The new facility will be located within an existing commercial building where the Company has secured a long-term lease. Architect plans are complete, and the space has been custom designed to produce edibles, oils and extracts at scale. The Company estimates the new facility to be approximately 7,500 square feet with construction expected to commence in the next 30 to 45 days.
“We appreciate the support of Clark County and we are looking forward to significant expansion of all aspects of our production. The new facility plans include high-volume extraction equipment to dramatically increase capacity and efficiency of our extraction products including oils, wax, live resin and ambrosia.” stated Robert Hasman, President of Nevada Medical Group LLC and board member of Body and Mind.“ We currently have strong demand for our edible brands and new mechanization equipment and space planning is anticipated to enable us to meet the increased interest for our current and future products. We estimate the potential to increase production of edibles five-fold while reducing unit costs by 40 %.”
The Company is currently testing new edible, oil and extraction products that upon successful testing will be manufactured at the new facility and marketed under the Body and Mind marquis life-style brand.
The new production facility is anticipated to be operational within 90 days pending license transfer approvals from local and state authorities. The Company plans to move the current production licence and will not need to apply for a new license.
