Green Meadows Will Soon Sell Its Own Locally Grown Products, Following the Acquisition of Cultivation and Medical Licenses

Once vertically integrated from seed to sale, Green Meadows will activate its pending medical cannabis license and serve registered patients along with adult-use customers.

SOUTHBRIDGE, MASS., May 11, 2021 Green Meadows, a cannabis company based in the heart of Southbridge, Mass., will soon be able to stock its shelves with its own locally-grown cannabis products, after the Cannabis Control Commission awarded licenses for both cultivation and medical sales. Once vertically integrated in June, Green Meadows will activate its medical cannabis license and serve registered patients along with adult-use customers. This brings Green Meadows one step closer to realizing its vision to bring customers and medical patients alike its own high quality, pure cannabis that is sustainability grown to organic standards right in its own backyard.

Growing cannabis “right in its backyard” is not hyperbole for Green Meadows, and in fact, it’s a rarity in Massachusetts to co-locate grow and retail operations. Green Meadows’ 35,000-square-foot cannabis production facility and dispensary sit in the same restored 19th century mill building, home to the original Ames Department Store, ensuring a seamless integration of customer-facing retail and premium organic production. The large production space has been designed to deploy organic and environmentally responsible methods, allowing Green Meadows’ customers to soon enjoy its own cannabis produced to organic and sustainable standards along with curated s elections from other providers.

“Serving the veteran community is core to who we are as a company and acquiring our medical license was an important step to ensuring we are able to meet the needs of those who served,” said Bob Patton, Manager and Chief Executive Officer. “We’ve heard from our customers that walking into our Southbridge store is like walking into their living room—this familial experience is what we are striving for in our store. We look forward to welcoming more veterans and medical patients to our space and extending to them the comfort, connection, knowledge and quality our adult use customers enjoy today.”

Cannabis cultivation and extraction is led by Benjamin Bourque, executive vice president for cannabis production. Bourque and his team, in the process of ramping up to approximately 30 growers and processing professionals, will follow strict organic standards to assure the highest level of safety and purity. Under Bourque’s leadership, Green Meadows developed its own patent-pending fertigation system to maximize energy and water efficiency, while also enhancing cannabis purity.

“Now that we have our license for cultivation, we envision that Green Meadows will become a visitor destination for cannabis—a place where our guests can find product that is grown to the highest organic principles as well as a place to learn about how it may improve health and well-being,” said Patton.
