Through its subsidiary, CP Logistics, LLC, Sunniva is developing Sunniva Campus, a state-of-the-art, purpose-built greenhouse facility in Cathedral City, California. Sunniva Campus is planned in two Phases and has been designed to comply with cGMP* (current Good Manufacturing Practice) standards. Phase I includes 247,000 square feet of greenhouse with 78,000 square feet of header house and breezeway for a total of 325,000 square feet. The CPL Greenhouse Facility is expected to produce 60,000 kg per year of dry cannabis at capacity and approximately 30% of initial production will be converted into oils and extracts. Phase II is expected to increase the greenhouse by 164,000 square feet and increase production by approximately 40,000 kg per year.
Sunniva Campus is designed to deploy custom, automation assembly line cultivation processes at scale. By using proven advanced technologies within our greenhouse facilities, we can expect to dramatically reduce labour costs, which typically exceed 50% of total cost of production within the cannabis industry.
By harnessing one of California’s most abundant resources—the plentiful sunshine—we reduce our energy consumption, while utilizing dynamic and adaptive microclimatic controls to provide precise growing conditions. This boosts vigorous photosynthesis, growth, and resin production, while reducing the risk of certain types of fungal and pest infections commonly seen in indoor cultivation.
Nourished by full-spectrum natural sunlight, generous airflow and oxygenation, optimal temperature and humidity, and precise nutrient delivery, our techniques are expected to produce quality, clean-testing medical botanicals that will benefit our customers in an environmentally sound way.
*cGMP regulations assure the identity, strength, quality, and purity of therapeutic products.
