Over the past couple of years the cannabis industry has taken Nevada by storm. Throughout this time, there have been many changes in ownerships, mergers and acquisitions. One constant in the industry has been Nature’s Chemistry. Through hard work, diligence and attention to detail, this company has established themselves as one of the top cultivators in the industry. In their approximately 23,000 square foot building, Nature’s Chemistry has perfected the art of producing top shelf quality cannabis. When you ask them what their secret is, you will get a simple response- “we just care about what we are doing.” This cannot be argued with once you step foot into their facility. From the moment you walk in, you are required to step into a cleaning solution that makes sure you are not bringing in anything unwanted into the building. From there, you are walked into a room to continue the decontamination process. By the time you leave that room you feel like a doctor ready for surgery. The attention to detail on cleanliness is like nothing we have seen before outside of a hospital. They tell us that the state required product testing they go through is stringent and extensive. Any lapse in the chain can lead to a failed test.
Surprisingly, they are ok with this. They feel the consumer should feel reassured that the product they are consuming is safe. While walking the facility, we notice every staff member wearing the appropriate coat, hat/hair net, mask and crocs that do not leave the building. Protocol is paramount in this facility! Everything that enters this building gets a generous dose of alcohol before being moved to its final destination. The white walls and epoxy floors pick up a reflection from the lights above from being so clean.
Many of the facilities throughout Nevada were retrofitted for the industry, but this facility was built from the ground up specifically for the purpose of growing cannabis. Every hose bib, outlet and pipe serves a purpose. According to them, this equates to efficiency and space management so there is no lost space in the facility. Lost space equates to less product being grown. The rolling tables in the veg and flower rooms are an indication of this. Why have 10 walkways in-between tables when you can have 1 simply by implementing moving tables? This maximizes grow space and efficiency. Another interesting aspect of their facility is the water room. The 10 tanks in the water room each serve a specific purpose. Each tank represents a section which gives them the ability to alter the feeding every week depending on what stage the plant is in.
One of the many things we learned that made a lot of sense was the mantra of “giving the plant specifically what it wants and needs.” These needs are: light, water, nutrients, the right humidity and the right temperatures. Indoors, these can be controlled to perfection without having to worry about certain elements such as cloudy days, weather patterns or droughts. It is somewhat of a laboratory so to speak. From the 30 plus A/C units on the roof to the 450 grow lights in the facility, it is evident that everything was well thought out.
All this did not happen by accident. The owners traveled to various states touring facilities and finding ways to make their facility the best they could. Nature’s Chemistry is made up of 4 local owners who put their blood, sweat and tears into this endeavor. This seems to trickle down to the staff as well. Every staff member we met was friendly and seemed to like working there. Simply put, it was a “good environment.” When talking to the owners they could not stop stressing how important the “team” is to the success of the company. According to them, everyday presents a new challenge and obstacle to overcome, but with determination and hard work failure is not an option.
This summer, the company is launching a new “Diamond Exclusive” line. This line will be available in select dispensaries and will highlight some of their premier flower.
Although running the business takes up a tremendous amount of their time, they find time to give back to the community. They help and support the Raiders Boxing Club in their area. A boxing club that gives local kids a place to train after school.
As you can tell from our words, we were thoroughly impressed with this company. Their passion and dedication are visible and clear. It makes us feel good that the state of the cannabis industry is in the hands of a team as diligent as the team at Nature’s Chemistry.
