Last, but not least - drought tolerant and low maintenance landscaping, low flow plumbing, zoned and timed core systems, and advanced lighting controls to help Lab Properties’ tenants minimize their impact on the planet.

Preparing a building for use in the cannabis industry is more than just placing your equipment in an empty warehouse. It takes extensive time and money to work with city governments, architects, contractors, and other third parties to bring the building itself into compliance with local and state regulating agencies. This is time and money that could be spent launching and building your business.

Lab Properties is focused on taking on the burden of these responsibilities, so you can focus on what you do best. Together, we can build the future of cannabis.

Lab Properties Welcomes Emerald Grown into Family of Tenants at the Searls Cannabis Campus.

Lab Properties is excited to welcome Emerald Grown into our family of tenants at its Searls Cannabis Campus in Nevada City.

Lab Properties’ multi-tenant campus in the heart of Nevada City will put Nevada County heritage cannabis businesses on the map while becoming an important change agent for the community at large. The vision is for a vibrant, multi-tenant ecosystem that will transform the 4-acre parcel into a state-of-the-art facility that will empower the local cannabis industry to transition into the regulated marketplace.

 

The Searls Campus — is on a path to becoming a vibrant commercial property, which is already home to several innovative cannabis companies in a cutting-edge setting tailored to the industry’s unique needs.

Emerald Grown is a federation of cannabis cooperative associations standing together in solidarity to preserve quality, craft cannabis production.

 

Emerald Grown will begin operating locally in Nevada County with Grass Valley Growers, a local cooperative of farms.

 

Hezekiah Allen who serves as the Chairperson and CEO of Emerald Grown said the group specializes in small-batch, hand-crafted cannabis products, grown with care and intention by heritage farmers statewide. The goal of creating a network of farm cooperatives is to help cannabis farms come into compliance with regulation, work with business partners across the state, and pool resources to ensure that California remains a global leader in the cannabis industry through standards, certification, traceability, cooperative marketing and brand development.

Hezekiah Allen, the Chairperson and CEO of Emerald Grown, resigned from his position as Executive Director of CGA in 2018 to spearhead Emerald Grown’s new effort to promote cannabis cultivation cooperatives.

“A lot of the time the coastal counties get a lot of the credit but we know the foothills produce great quality cannabis,” Allen said. “That’s a really important bottom line, the legacy of Nevada County and the Gold Country region, those are shared assets and we want to make sure that all growers in the community have an easy pathway to use those assets.”

 

Allen said the 4500-square-foot facility will focus on “stage 1” processing of cannabis and cannabis goods: Drying, curing and trimming. Allen added the facility will also grow into packaging flower into pre-rolls, sort product for extraction and leverage the power of bulk for distribution pricing.

 

“A lot of farmers in Nevada County have had their traditional operations disrupted, and some of them won't be able to dry in their own farms,” Allen said of recent local regulations, which impose additional requirements for cannabis farmers to process their cannabis harvest on site. “The goal of this aggregation centers is to meet the farmers wherever they are in the process and help them take the final steps needed to get to market.”

 

Emerald Grown is working with more than 100 farmers statewide. He said the goal is to reach 300 farms by 2023. Allen said the network of farmers include farms as small as 1300 square feet of canopy to larger heritage farms, though all are less than 10,000 square feet in canopy.

 

“We like the legacy grower who has been doing this work for some time,” He said. “What matters to us is the small farmer.”

 

As executive director of CGA, Allen was at the forefront of cannabis lobbying in Sacramento, until he resigned in 2018 to spearhead this new effort to promote cannabis cultivation cooperatives.

 

“This is a great addition to the local cannabis community and a service that is needed by many farmers,” said Diana Gamzon, Executive Director of the Nevada County Cannabis Alliance. “We are looking forward to have them be members  of the local cannabis community and to the community at large. We hope to see many more services like this in the county.”

Secrets to Success from Cannabis Entrepreneur Daniel Batchelor of Elevation 2477’

_OVE1176.jpg

For Daniel Batchelor, owner and CEO of Elevation 2477’, being a pioneer is as much about breaking new ground as it is about paving the way for other businesses in Nevada City.

Elevation 2477’ is the first and only dispensary in Nevada County. Located at 569 Searls Avenue, in the heart of Nevada City’s 7 Hill Business District, Elevation 2477’ became the Searls Cannabis Campus’ first tenant. The sophisticated and elegant dispensary anchors the development of what is expected to be a dynamic and symbiotic campus -- an ecosystem of cannabis businesses operating in an area rich with heritage cannabis cultivation history.

Q: How does it feel to be the first cannabis business permitted in Nevada City, and actually in all of Nevada County?

DB: Being the first is not easy. There was a lot of scrutiny and we learned some lessons along the way. Our buildout took longer than expected and state regulations kept changing while we were trying to establish our business. We opened our doors last summer when new testing requirements were being implemented, which meant there was a shortage of compliant product in the market. But we knew we had a responsibility to set the standard for other cannabis businesses coming after us. In fact, Elevation 2477’ has become the place that all kinds of city and county officials have visited in order to learn about how cannabis businesses operate.

_OVE0798.jpg


Q: What do you think helped you get the only dispensary permit in Nevada City?

DB: Well, we had a proposal that highlighted our team as the most qualified. But when Nevada City officials began talking about the possibility of allowing a dispensary, I immediately got involved. I went to every city council meeting and took part in community workshops and discussions about where in the city dispensaries should go, how many, etc. It was probably the most important step I could have taken to getting us a permit. In addition, our location was the most ideal one. When we conceived the whole campus idea, we knew we would be more than 1000 feet from any sensitive use and that we could redevelop a property that would bring quality jobs and tax revenue to the city.


_OVE0896 (1).jpg


Q: What advice do you give to other cannabis businesses looking to apply for a permit in Nevada City?

DB: My advice to other cannabis businesses is to know the local and state regulations. Then you can begin building your application to the city, your application to the state, and your business model and operations around it. Plan ahead, have patience and get involved with the community. And make sure you align yourself with a partner like Lab Properties that already has the power upgraded, ADA code compliance and it’s ready for your tenant improvements in order to avoid delays.



Q: As Lab Properties develops the campus around you, what is your own vision for the campus?


DB: I’m looking forward to being able to carry many of the local products that will be produced right here, next to us. Many California dispensaries are vertically integrated and carry many of their own products. This is different. This is an ecosystem of businesses supporting each other in a community known for its heritage growers. It’s a great story.

Historic Vote Paves the Way for Cannabis Industry Growth in Nevada County

IMG-3019.JPG

The Nevada County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to adopt the cannabis cultivation ordinance as an urgency ordinance. The move effectively allows cannabis farmers who undergo the permitting process to put plants in the ground for the upcoming growing season.

Known for its rich-mineral soils and an environment free of mold and pathogen producing coastal sprays, Nevada County’s unique network of microclimates has allowed cultivators for decades to produce a variety of strains whose phenotypes have been able to express themselves fully in such ideal weather and soil conditions. But without a cannabis cultivation ordinance, many of the cannabis cultivated in the area never entered the licensed retail market.

IMG-3018.JPG

That’s until now. The historic vote Tuesday has been three years in the making. After the overwhelming defeat in 2016 of Measure W, an unpopular ballot measure that would have banned cannabis cultivation in the county, local groups and advocates have tirelessly worked to educate the community at large about the economic and cultural benefits of developing a set of rules that would regulate all cannabis activity in the county.

“We can finally breathe a little easier. We are beyond elated with the results of three years of work in order to save the heritage agricultural business that is cannabis cultivation in this county,” said Diana Gamzon, executive director of the Nevada County Cannabis Alliance. “This is also the beginning of establishing a fully regulated cannabis industry in the county that accounts for every license type in the supply chain.”

Nevada City, the county seat, led the charge in cannabis-friendly policy in June of 2017 and voted to implement a cannabis business ordinance, allowing cannabis nurseries, manufacturers, processors, distribution companies, lab testing facilities and one retailer to operate in green zones throughout the city.

Lab Properties is fortunate to be part of this dedicated community of cultivators and operators establishing a licensed industry in the area. With approximately 27,000 square feet of space, The Searls Cannabis Campus will fill a small, but important part of the supply chain by providing real estate that is ready for compliant businesses -- providing a pathway for the product grown by local cultivators to reach the retail market.

“It all began here in Nevada City,” Gamzon said at a recent gathering to celebrate the new ordinance. “It has allowed us to show the county’s elected official what is possible.”

Gamzon added that businesses such as the Elevation 2477’ dispensary, an anchor tenant of Lab Properties’ campus, have raised the bar and set the example for the level of sophistication and professionalism that is possible in this new era of regulated cannabis.

About Nevada City and the Sierra Foothills

Nestled in the Sierra Foothills region, and conveniently located one hour away from Sacramento and just 25 minutes from the I-80 corridor -- Nevada County is quickly emerging as an important region in the regulated cannabis industry in California.


Nevada County approved a full cultivation ordinance and permitting process, effectively allowing hundreds of cultivators to participate in the regulated market.


Known for its rich- mineral soils and an environment free of mold and pathogen producing coastal sprays, Nevada County’s unique network of microclimates has allowed cultivators for decades to produce a variety of strains whose phenotypes have been able to express themselves fully in such ideal weather and soil conditions.


Nevada City, the county seat, led the charge in cannabis-friendly policy in June of 2017 and voted to implement a cannabis business ordinance, allowing the following license types to operate in green zones throughout the city:

  • Manufacturing: Type 6 (non-volatile) and Type 7 (volatile)

  • Nurseries

  • Distribution

  • Processing

  • Retail - Only one permit


Close to the means of production and to major transportation arteries such as I-80 and I-5, Nevada City is poised to become an important hub of activity for the Northern California cannabis industry.


In addition, Nevada City boasts some of the lowest tax rates in the state:
