“a logical next step for us based on public support”
Reno, NV (November 10, 2016) – On the heels of Nevada’s decision to legalize recreational Cannabis use, Good Chemistry Nurseries is bringing its award-winning nursery system and world-class product to Nevada with the launch of a new Reno production facility that will service dispensaries throughout the state. The announcement was made today by company founder & CEO Matthew Huron.
“Launching Good Chemistry Nurseries in Nevada was a logical next step for us based on public support and proximity to our operations in Colorado,” Huron said. “Our company is known for product excellence and Nevada Cannabis users and dispensary owners have strongly encouraged us to bring our high quality flower to the state.”
Good Chemistry Nurseries’ award-winning Cannabis will be located in dispensaries throughout the state of Nevada. Some of the company’s highly acclaimed strains include the legendary exclusive strains Ingrid and Mr. Good Chem, as well as their renowned Sour Diesel, Gorilla Glue #4, Amnesia Haze, XJ-13, OG’er, Durban Poison, Novacaine, Alien Dawg, LSD, Master Kush and Orange Bubblegum.
Huron became involved in the medical marijuana industry when his father and his father’s partner were diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. In 1996, when medical marijuana became available in California, Huron saw firsthand the symptomatic relief patients experienced from this alternative medical treatment. In 2000, he began growing medical marijuana for AIDS patients throughout the state, founding and operating a nonprofit medical marijuana co-op that became one of the most respected and well-known facilities in San Francisco.
After 10 years operating the Elmar Lins Compassion Co-Op, Huron moved to Colorado to co-found Wellspring Collective, which caters to seniors with health challenges and provides alternative health services. In 2010, he launched Good Chemistry Colorado, planning the facility infrastructure design and construction, acquiring the necessary financing and directing the resulting work. It is considered to be one of the finest vertically integrated cannabis companies in the state.
Today, Good Chemistry employs a staff of more than 100, operating dispensaries in Denver and Aurora, as well as its new Nevada cultivation. Huron has developed and implemented best practices in the medical and retail marijuana industry, including a Compassion Care Program that enables patients with limited resources to obtain medical marijuana at little or no cost. His enforcement of policies and procedures throughout the company has ensured strict compliance with state and local regulations. Huron has collaborated with local leaders and law enforcement to enhance neighborhood safety and security.
Since 2010, Good Chemistry Nurseries expanded cultivation operations in two large Colorado facilities that are devoted solely to the production of more than 60 strains of marijuana. In addition, they optimized the production of extracts and concentrates through solvent-less processing. Huron is a founding board member of the Cannabis Business Alliance (CBA) and a founder and former board member of the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA). He has served on the Colorado Department of Revenue’s Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division’s (MED) Licensing Authority Advisory Committee, which was charged with advising regulators on the development of production management, tax and other policies pertaining to the use of marijuana.
Good Chemistry Nurseries Chief Production Officer Duncan Cameron says, “Good Chemistry Nurseries is the perfect fit for Nevada, as the state prepares to kick off adult-use operations in the coming year. Our cultivation facility brings together sophisticated cultivation techniques, the latest technology, and a dedicated nursery team to ensure Silver State consumers will find the most consistent highest quality cannabis when they look to Good Chemistry Nurseries.”
Marijuana Business Daily estimates Nevada’s 2016 marijuana sales to be between $25 million and $35 million, up from $4-6 million in 2015. Nevada’s medical marijuana market is poised for tremendous growth. The patient base will likely continue to expand, while the ability for out-of-state patients to purchase medical marijuana from dispensaries could provide a huge boost to sales.
