Las Vegas Skyline Includes Marijuana Cultivation Buildings

Las Vegas has the fastest growing legal marijuana market in the country as tourists now have even more to do while visiting sin city. The strip can be seen from far away once you enter the valley and the lights are dazzling. Now, when visitors look out to the Las Vegas skyline, part of the towering garden sprouting up from the desert will include state of the art facilities built by the largest owner of marijuana cultivation licenses in Vegas, Meraphram Ventrues Inc..

To handle the intense temperature swings that Nevada is known for, Meraphram Ventrues Inc. have created structures with twice the amount of insulation required by code, and taken other measures to keep the energy costs down as much as can be in an industry that uses a lot of electricity. Will knowing that marijuana may be growing in the building next to your favorite casino add to your Las Vegas experience?

Marapharm Ventures Inc. (OTCQB: MRPHF) (CSE: MDM.CN) (FSE: 2M0) (“Marapharm” or the ” Company”) ( Marapharm Ventures Inc. “Marapharm” announces construction in Las Vegas has hit a series of critical milestones. The building shells are complete, the concrete has been poured, the buildings have been insulated, and interior framing has begun. The buildings have double the amount of insulation as required by code to keep operating costs in the Nevada environment as low as possible. The concrete slabs are designed with state of the art heating and cooling infrastructure to lower operating costs and to enhance the growing environment, which will place less demand on the HVAC system.

All equipment and initial operating supplies have been ordered, with delivery expected in the next few weeks, including industry leading lighting from Solis-Tek Lighting Corp custom engineered rolling ‘Soma-Style’ cultivation bins and a custom soil blend made by Essential Agronomy from Oregon for the cultivation operation. Closed loop extraction equipment from Extraction Tek will be installed for the manufacturing operation. The entire facility will benefit from a custom engineered HVAC system that uses a combination of SURNA indoor water chilled fan coils and dehumidifiers. These will be fueled by outdoor propane powered engines with proprietary Italian made heat exchange technology.

“The buildings we have are state of the art and have been custom designed to be flexible and expandable with redundancy across our operations to assure that harvests will be protected. Operating costs are estimated at 20{f1d755e3d686d84b3fba3fb9da3bc25d6eb08724c18385fd50146d58c836a6dd} less than a conventional system. Our infrastructure and equipment investments reflect decisions to use the best-of-breed. We are in this for the long term and these facilities will enable us to create a top quality product that will yield the highest return for our shareholders,” said Linda Sampson, Marapharm CEO.


Construction photos are available on the Marapharm web page. On August 21, 2017 Marapharm announced that construction of the 2 starter facilities was expected to be complete on or about October 31, 2017. This has been reset to on or about November 30, 2017.

Marapharm announced on October 10, 2017 that construction of a third building of 65,635 square feet and that building plans were expected to go to bid in October 2017. Plans have been completed and have gone to manufacturers for bid.
