1. Rob & Mike have been selected to speak at Cannabis Science Conference West!

    Two of our team members have recently been chosen to present at the Cannabis Science Conference West in Portland next month. Rob James, PE will present on optimizing cannabis operations through HVAC equipment selection, and Michael Leavitt, PE will present on the impact of plant transpiration rates on business profitability. Rob recently returned from presenting at MJBizConNEXT, and Michael recently returned from moderating a panel at Cannabis Business Summit & Expo. 

    “Optimizing Your Grow Operation Through Smart HVAC Selection” will take place on Thursday, September 5 at 4:00 p.m. as part of the conference’s cultivation track. Rob will provide a knowledgeable look at optimizing some of your cannabis operation’s largest and most critical investments: heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) technologies. “Sweating the Small Stuff: Impact of Transpiration Rates on Profitability” will take place on Friday, September 5 at 4:00 p.m., also as part of the conference’s cultivation track. During this session, Michael will explore how vapor pressure differentials affect transpiration rates, plant growth and equipment sizing. 

    Cannabis Science Conference is one of the world’s largest and most technical cannabis science expos. The conference brings together cannabis industry experts, manufacturers, testing labs, research scientists, policy makers and more, all with the common goal of improving cannabis science.
