Calyx Peak Inc. has officially announced the opening of its new 82,500 square foot cultivation and extraction facility in Missouri. This new facility will vertically integrate Local Cannabis Company’s flagship location in the state, located at 1004 W. 45th St., Kansas City, Mo. 64111 at the corner of Belleview and West 45th Street in the heart of West Plaza.
“We are thrilled to complete the construction and commence operations of one of the best equipped and designed cannabis growing and extraction facilities across the United States,” said Erin Carachilo, CEO of Calyx Peak Inc. “Our Missouri cultivation facility is well positioned to become a top-quality producer across the state, mirroring our past performances in California and other states we’ve operated in.”
For instance, Calyx Peak has leveraged this model in California. Its Santa Barbara County, Calif. 235,000 square foot cultivation facility has produced the Emerald Cup first place winning cannabis flower every year since 2019 and expects to bring this level of quality in operations to Missouri.
“Calyx Peak’s Local Cannabis Company award winning flower is positioned to become one of Missouri’s most highly sought-after products in the Show Me State,” said Co-Founder Howard Keum. “The Missouri facility should be able to produce about over 12,500 pounds of high-quality dried flower per year alongside multitude of extracted and manufactured form factors. After delays attributable to construction supply issues, we look forward to becoming Missouri’s top producer of fine cannabis.”
On Nov. 8, 2022, Missouri voted in favor for the legalization of recreational marijuana for those ages 21 and over. The “Legal Missouri 2022” initiative will allow people with certain categories of non-violent marijuana-related offenses to petition for their release from prison, parole, or probation.
“This approval of legalizing the status of recreational marijuana will have a transformative effect on the Missouri cannabis market and our ability to serve the greater population more efficiently,” said Lee Hoffman, chief operating officer and partner of Calyx Peak’s Missouri operations. “Similar states such as Missouri that have converted from a medical only program to recreational have seen a three to five times increase in their state sales.”
Calyx Peak is a multi-state operator in California, Missouri and Massachusetts. Calyx Peak operates multiple dispensaries and over 200,000 square feet of legally licensed cultivation, extraction and distribution facilities in America. Calyx Peak continues to grow its brands and operations in its drive to achieve a dominant position in the rapidly evolving cannabis market.
