Marapharm Ventures Inc. (CSE: MDM) (OTCQX: MRPHF) (FSE: 2M0) (“Marapharm” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that on April 12th, 2018, NV Energy passed our preliminary electrical inspection, one of the final steps towards receiving our certification prior to turning on the power. All electrical services and cultivation lighting have been installed in both facilities in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Marapharm’s Director of Operations, Kurt Keating, selected High Intensity Discharge (“HID”) lighting products from Solis Tek Inc., a leader in the hydroponic industry for its digital lighting. The digital lamps and ballasts include innovative features such as built-in SenseSmart Ignition Control for safe operation, and the industry’s lowest output of Total Harmonic Distortion (“THD%”) to gain the maximum benefits. The lamps have been exclusively developed by a highly accredited NASA advisor along with the reflectors and other accessories to complete an ideal lighting system.
Light Laboratory Inc., an independent photometric testing laboratory evaluated six different cannabis lighting providers. Solis Tek scored highest in terms of overall value for cultivators. Of the top five, Solis Tek’s High Intensity Discharge (“HID”) lights helped commercial growers avoid hotspots, creating a more even canopy, where no one plant grows taller and overshadows other plants.
Solis Tek’s unique four spectrum “light diet” targets specific growth cycles and replicates the different seasons of the year, where the plants make use of natural light in different ways. The company was the first cannabis lighting company to offer these features, which are now standard among many top commercial cannabis growers. These attributes help cultivators create the best environment to increase yield and produce the highest quality crops for consumers.
“We look forward to adding our own proprietary cultivation knowledge to the unrivaled advantage gained by the adoption of Solis Tek lighting. The Company appreciates the partnership with NV Energy and their commitments to our tight time-lines.” Kurt Keating, Director of Operations.
