Terra Tech Corp., a vertically integrated cannabis-focused agriculture company, today announced that Blüm has been granted a license by the City of San Leandro, California, to open a new retail facility.
Blüm will work with San Leandro City staff to develop a commercial cannabis facility that meets the needs of the residents of San Leandro and the requirements of the City on the 13,000 square foot site, located at 1911 Fairway Drive. Terra Tech expects to start construction of the new facility in January 2017. The new Blüm location in San Leandro will significantly increase the availability of the Company’s proprietary IVXX™ brand of premium medical cannabis, flowers, shatter, wax and oil, in addition to other superior grade medical cannabis products from a range of reputable providers.
“San Leandro is a great city on the rise and we are delighted our team has been awarded a dispensary license to operate there,” commented Derek Peterson, CEO of Terra Tech. “Thanks to the efforts of the City of San Leandro’s administration and staff we have the privilege of increasing Blüm’s retail footprint and developing a new facility where we can expand the IVXX product line. California is a major market for Terra Tech and we welcome the opportunity to increase the Company’s production and retail capabilities to meet increasing demand for our premium medical cannabis products. The new facility at 1911 Fairway Drive really strengthens our presence in California.”
“A greater interest and understanding of cannabis in recent years has contributed to the growing legalization movement, leading to the emergence of new opportunities for leaders in the space. The upcoming November ballot initiative in California, if passed, would legalize recreational cannabis across the state and be a further boon to the cannabis industry, attracting new business and creating new jobs. As one of the earliest legal players in the cannabis industry, we are delighted with the support we have received in San Leandro and the positive direction we see both this city and industry moving towards,” concluded Mr. Peterson.
Executive Director of Blüm, Salwa Ibrahim stated, “We are so excited San Leandro has welcomed us into the City. San Leandro created a very thorough multi year vetting process and we can’t wait for the real work to start. We are hoping to work with the city to develop an incubator program allowing us to partner with local producers in the development their own products; hopefully leading to exciting new innovations and joint ventures for the company.”
