Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
Medical Marijuana Inc. (MJNA) has announced the integration and expansion of its PhytoSPHERE subsidiary. This move gives the nation’s premier hemp nutraceutical firm full management oversight of its manufacturing and quality assurance processes for all of its existing and emerging products.
“MJNA’s strategy is really good news for the company, industry, and consumers,” said John Malanca, owner of patient-oriented medical marijuana resource UnitedPatientsGroup.com. “The increased control will accelerate development time and help innovative products reach the market more quickly than in the past.”
PhytoSPHERE designs and builds highly efficient, self-contained hemp cultivation and hemp oil extraction and production facilities. The company cultivates thousands of acres of industrial hemp in its specialty micro-climates in locations around the world. MJNA says it plans to increase the amount of acreage under cultivation, as demand for its specialty hemp oil products continues to grow.
PhytoSPHERE manages the entire growth and manufacturing operation starting from the initial planting of specialty cultivars and monitoring of the growth cycle to harvesting the crops and producing the end products. PhytoSPHERE raises hemp cultivars with high levels of cannabinoid (CBD), which are then processed into highly concentrated CBD hemp oil using the company’s proprietary extraction process.
Some of the technologies employed in the PhytoSPHERE production system include: self-contained indoor, accelerated growth modules; computer-controlled nutrient delivery for strong, compact, multi-directional growth; and an antibacterial clipping, curing and packaging system.
Crops can be grown without harmful pesticides, fungicides or herbicides. The company says its bacteria-free environment and packaging systems produce the highest grade of CBD hemp and other oils.
As the market for CBD health and wellness products grows, PhytoSphere predicts a taste for “designer” aromas and flavors will arise. The company says it is preparing by developing new products using unique strains of hemp with unique flavenoids, terpenoids and concentration profiles.
“Using PhytoSPERE technology, we are able to mass produce specific strains of cannabis and hemp to ensure consistency of taste, aroma and potency of our products,” said Ted Caligiuri, President and CEO of Medical Marijuana Inc.
