Remedy Cultivation – Las Vegas, NV
Family-owned Remedy cultivation is currently producing 80 to 90 pounds of marijuana flower every two months — this Las Vegas garden harvests eight out of every nine weeks. Forty different strains make up their flower menu, along with topicals, vapes and concentrates extracted by their production partner, TerpX. When it comes to quality, they have some of best flower in the state, in my opinion.
Their cultivation currently consists of three vegetation rooms and seven flower rooms, but Remedy will be upgrading to include an additional flower room and two vegetation rooms, LED lights on one level and fluorescents on the other to increase space and yields. Walking past flower that was just hours away from harvest, I was amazed by how uniquely different each strain’s terpenes were. Remedy flagship strain Bio-Jesus reeked of pungent diesel fuel; elsewhere, tropical notes of myrcene exploded from their Blue Dream, which is “the best Blue Dream” in the valley, according to marketing director Randy Villarba. And I must admit, after smoking it … I have to agree! Other notable strains to look forward to include Dead Head OG, Gelato and Grand Daddy Purple.
At Remedy, quality control is everything, and cultivation director Chris Welch has a very simple mentality: plant first. “We treat each plant like they’re our children,” Welch says. “We give each individual plant love and attention, and the mentality always remains the same — plant first.” Instances of this theory put into practice abound. For example, hydroton clay pebbles on top of coco coir soil help protect the plant roots and distribute water evenly throughout the soil. Remedy has even begun to grow some of their plants using live tissue samples, a technique not often seen. Expect big things to come from this cultivation, as it looks to set a standard for quality control, potency and terpene diversity.
