DENVER, Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Industry grow leader Ben Burkhardt announced today the launch of Sunlight Green Systems (SGS). SGS is a collective group of experienced grow aggregators that provide equity and fee-based services for commercial marijuana cultivation facilities in states with legal cannabis operations.
Burkhardt began honing his craft in the medical marijuana industry after California Proposition 215 created the first legal passageway to the plant in 1996. During this period, Burkhardt witnessed the quality of life improvement cannabis provided a family member and others, which led him to develop a strong interest in the plant and its medicinal benefits. By 1998, he had joined the adolescent medical marijuana industry and was cultivating for the Berkeley Patients Group, the first medical cannabis dispensary in the United States. From the industry’s inception, Burkhardt has been on the forefront of medical marijuana.
Burkhardt said, “There is a growing number of organizations out there focused on license application consulting within the 23 states and Washington, D.C., where they are being processed; however, SGS is primarily focused in the area of cultivation. We are a turn-key operation that partners with growers to provide expertise on per day yield analysis, lighting, water filtration, employee training, security, flower canopy management, and many other cultivation-based services.”
