Calyx Peak, a vertically integrated multi-state cannabis operator, has officially announced the opening of its 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.
Calyx Peak will operate largely as Local Cannabis Company in Missouri, where it is establishing a model that it has used in other areas of the country like California.
"Our Santa Barbara County, California, 235,000 square foot cultivation facility in California has produced the Emerald Cup first place winning cannabis flower every year since 2019, and we expect to bring this level of quality in operations to Missouri," said CEO Erin Carachilo.
"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," said Co-Founder Howard Keum.
On November 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.
