Planet 13 Begins Construction of 14,000 sq. ft. Customer-Facing Production Facility

Planet 13 Holdings Inc., a leading vertically-integrated Nevada cannabis company, has begun construction of a 14,000 sq. ft. production facility, co-located with the Planet 13 Cannabis Entertainment Complex at 2548 W Desert Inn Rd, Las Vegas. The Production Facility will enable Planet 13 to meet the rapidly growing demand for its TRENDI concentrate and vape lines, which it launched in November. It will also be used to address the overwhelming demand for Planet 13’s Medizin line and to launch additional brands and product lines.

The Production Facility will offer an immersive experience to customers, featuring 115 feet of windows where visitors can watch and learn what goes into the creation of individual products. Interactive kiosks will be available near the production viewing area to teach customers what goes into making their favourite product, offering Planet 13 a powerful branding opportunity.

The highly automated Production Facility will utilize robotics to lower costs and will be capable of processing 600 lbs of plant biomass per day once in full production, a throughput increase of approximately 1,300% from Planet 13’s current production facility. The expansion will allow Planet 13 to create new brands and product lines and expand the existing TRENDI and Medizin product lines both for the SuperStore and for wholesale.

“Both our TRENDI and Medizin vapes and concentrates sell-out consistently. This new Production Facility will enable us to keep pace with demand while adding highly attractive gummies, chocolates and beverage lines. With the expanded production capacity, we expect to begin offering our products in dispensaries across the state,” said Bob Groesbeck, Co-CEO of Planet 13. “This is just the beginning of our planned expansion. We are consistently adding features to solidify the SuperStore as a must-visit destination in Las Vegas, growing average traffic and ticket, and exploring opportunities to leverage our growing brand awareness into accretive opportunities both within Nevada and in other attractive U.S. markets.”

The Production Facility is expected to be completed in Q3 2019. The entire Phase II expansion is expected to cost approximately US$6 million. Construction will be overseen by Stephen Markle, Vice President of Production. Stephen formulated the popular TRENDI line of products and has developed and launched a variety of innovative concentrate and edible products. Stephen has overseen full-scale development and management of both cannabis testing and extraction facilities.
