The Clover Creek facility will produce extracted oils that are refined onsite in a 20,000-square-foot state-of-the-art lab. Flower for the oils will also be grown onsite in light deprivation greenhouses. The cultivation side of the project is projected to grow to 267,000-square-feet by year four.
“Our team at Clover Creek consists of large-scale agriculture producers, horticulturists, and cannabis cultivators,” said Brandon Burkhardt, owner of Clover Creek. “This mixture of a team is vital for sustainability in the cannabis industry and the consistency and the quality of the product we produce. Cultivating cannabis is our passion, and it’s a pleasure to be partnering with a team that is as passionate about extraction as we are about cultivation.”
UCG will provide cannabis manufacturing facility design, equipment specification, product formulation, and project budgeting. “We are excited to partner with Clover Creek and to bring our legal recreational cannabis manufacturing expertise to the table,” said Sushanta Parikh, CEO of UCG. “We are confident that our four years of operational data, combined with our deep understanding of the maturation cycle of the evolving cannabis market, will give them an invaluable headstart in the Nevada cannabis industry. Clover Creek is composed of a strong group of business minds and we are proud to join the team.”
Nevada brings a unique playing field to the cannabis world based on the huge tourism draw of Las Vegas, and UCG COO Derek Thiel believes that this will make Nevada one of the strongest cannabis markets in the country – with Clover Creek at the forefront. “This is a strategic partnership pairing one of the best cultivators in the industry with advanced extraction processes from UCG,” said Thiel. “This facility will undoubtedly set the benchmark for quality cannabis in Nevada.”
