Our flagship dispensary, Harvest of Tempe, has been in operation since May 2013. It is considered to be a model dispensary in the industry, as evidenced through the reception of several awards, including recognition as the best dispensary in Arizona. Our newest dispensary, Harvest of Scottsdale, opened in September 2016. At 6,800 square-feet, the facility is one of the largest in the state and features a dedicated educational space where we host New Patient Orientation seminars and support group meetings.
We also operate a 12,000 square foot cultivation facility in Flagstaff, and 3.3 acres of outdoor cultivation space and a 35,000 square foot facility in Camp Verde. The latter site features a fully automated greenhouse with a building management system that senses and stabilizes the environment, thereby increasing efficiency and efficacy. Our proprietary strain, Verde Electric, was recently named best medical cannabis strain by Phoenix New Times Magazine.
We have broad experience in production. We are the sole Arizona manufacturer and distributer of Bhang Chocolate, the most recognizable and awarded edible product in the nation. We also produce the Dream Steam vaporizer pen, which promotes the safe inhalation of cannabis.
Finally, BioMed is our wholly medical product line focused on providing patients with consistent, accurate medication through traditional forms of administration.
Harvest holds a minority share in six dispensary, four cultivation, and four production licenses in the Las Vegas area. Our involvement included drafting successful applications for all three types of facilities and facility design and consultation, including an independent cultivation/production facility. We actively operate two of the dispensaries: The Source Las Vegas and The Source Henderson.
Harvest holds three dispensary licenses in Illinois, and similar to Nevada, our involvement included drafting successful applications and facility design and construction. Once completed, we will actively operate all three dispensaries.
Harvest was awarded preliminary approval to cultivate and dispense medical cannabis in the state of Maryland. Our 105,000 square foot facility has 62,000 square feet of indoor cultivation space and sits on a 7-acre lot with two acres of unused land available for greenhouse cultivation. The site is located in the town of Hancock, MD near the Pennsylvania border. An economically depressed town, Hancock has lost nearly 1,000 jobs over the last two decades. Hancock Mayor Daniel Murphy has stated that he hopes the 124 jobs Harvest will bring to town will be the beginning of an economic turnaround for the area.
Our dispensary, Harvest of Maryland, will be located in the Rockville Pike area of Maryland. There, we will dispense medical cannabis to qualified patients and continue our mission of community outreach and education.
