AGRiMED plans to produce unique plant strains, process high-quality oils, and manufacture medicines patients will demand. Unlike other medicines, the medical marijuana industry isn’t solely dependent on companies willing to process and sell products, the quality of the plants from individual strain research and special care in each stage of its production is what contributes to the helpfulness it can have for patients. AGRiMED is committed to excellence throughout the entire system of cultivation and their cultivation methods and standards will provide a steady, uninterrupted supply of medical marijuana to the patients of Pennsylvania. They focus on sustainable growing practices, industry-leading processing, and world-class genetics. AGRiMED facilities will elevate industry standards and be fertile grounds for producing medical-grade products. Preservation of these facilities and production is also in mind, as they use energy-efficient growing techniques allowing the company to reduce costs and lower the carbon footprint. There are three basic stages of the medical marijuana life cycle to consider: propagation, vegetation, and flowering. The facility will be designed to have separate areas for each growth stage; medical marijuana plants will be moved from one area to the next as they mature. Each area shall be fully stocked with specific equipment specific to and designed for producing optimal conditions appropriate for all stages of growth. This includes lighting, HVAC/environmental air and temperature control, and irrigation equipment.
AGRiMED’s world-class Medical Advisory Board will promote dialogue with and education for Pennsylvania’s medical community on the therapeutic benefits of cannabis.

Scientists at AGRiMED facilities have created products that can fit the ideal for many different patients. The list of products includes soft gels, capsules, tinctures, and various cannabis extracts. Each of these product formats are tested to consistently aid in the 18 qualifying conditions of the PA Medical Marijuana program. Through analysis, an information system is available to determine the mental and physical effects with a word identifying the combined result. Medical marijuana strains are chosen based on research, clinical studies, and anecdotal evidence showing therapeutic benefits for patients with qualifying conditions and that can meet a preliminary set 3 classes of THC and CBD ratios. AGRiMED will cultivate from indica, sativa, and hybrid varieties as a broad selection will allow patients to find a diverse and custom phytochemical profile that fits their specific medical needs. Though AGRiMED has plenty to offer, every product comes with quality to match.
