“After four years of hard work building the facility, we are excited to have approval to grow our first crop,” said Bill Sanford, Chairman of Breathing Green Solutions, in a press release.

The company’s 35,000 sq. ft. manufacturing plant includes a proprietary growing and nutritional system.

Breathing Green is planning to have its product available to the medicinal marijuana market by mid-2018.
