Once home to a booming oil industry, Coalinga is now shaping up to be a California cannabis hub. As proof, less than a month after West Coast dispensary operator Have a Heart held a grand opening celebration for the first and only dispensary in Coalinga, others have arrived.
Home to a municipal airport and located in the Southwestern most corner of Fresno County, Coalinga is just a short drive to nearby cities in Kings, Monterey, and San Benito Counties.
After the City Council for the City of Coalinga approved Resolution No. 3831 lowering the Cultivation Taxes on Cannabis licenses, it comes as no surprise that more and more cannabis companies are considering Coalinga home.
Vertically integrated from seed to sale, California-focused Next Green Wave Holdings Inc. (CSE:NGW) (OTC:NXGWF) just announced that is has obtained all necessary state and local licenses for its “site A production facility” in Coalinga, which will allow Next Green Wave to carry out all its seed to sale operations in the state of California.
Next Green Wave’s license specifications cover a long list of functions including:
- Indoor Cultivation – Adult Use (up to 15,000 ft²)
- Indoor Cultivation – Medical (up to 5,000 ft²)
- Nursery Adult
- Nursery Medical
- Distribution – Adult
- Distribution – Medical
- Volatile Extraction – includes non-volatile extraction, infusion, and manufacturing
“With the completion of our 35,000 ft² premium indoor Facility A imminent, we have received all of the state licenses necessary to move into production in 2019. This is a major milestone to see us into full operation in 2019,” commented Leigh Hughes, Executive Chairman of Next Green Wave.
Beyond just Have a Heart and Next Green Wave Holdings, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley has also had his sights set on Coalinga for quite some time now. Back in 2016, Damian Marley announced his intention to convert the former Claremont Custody Center into a cannabis cultivation facility.
While Next Green Wave and Damian Marley work to get their Coalinga operations up and running, we’ll be sure to keep an eye on Coalinga for any major developments. In the meantime, be sure to subscribe to updates here so you never miss an important update.
