Said Dr. Riseman, "I'm eager to conduct this study using TerraSphere's highly controlled growing technology. Using a secure and highly developed technology is important for conducting research involving medical marijuana. I am familiar with TerraSphere's advanced technology and secure growing environment and anticipate this study will yield positive results and help lead the industry towards commercial scale growth."
"We are excited to work with such an esteemed partner as Dr. Riseman. We offer a safe and secure process to produce medical marijuana that is pesticide free and the results of the Trial will help us ensure that our growing practices and procedures meet, and even exceed, both quality and safety standards," said
TerraSphere's patented design utilizes an indoor plant production system, known as vertical farming, to grow pesticide-free plants on a year-round basis, irrespective of location, external climate or other environmental factors. PharmaSphere's use of TerraSphere's patented technology ensures that medicinal marijuana will be produced in a controlled, secure, and reliable systematic environment yielding consistent and uniform product.
The study is underway and the first trial is expected to be completed within three (3) months. Crops will be harvested and weighed to determine yield per square foot. Dr. Riseman will evaluate the growing technique and overall quality of the product including characteristics such as root structures, leaf number, bud number, and leaf size. Tissue analyses will determine the levels of THC and the detection of any heavy metals or pesticides.
TerraSphere Systems (www.terraspheresystems.com) is dedicated to building highly efficient systems for growing organic fruits and vegetables in a controlled indoor environment. TerraSphere's clean technology helps to promote the sustainable consumption of natural resources by accelerating plant production and maximizing crop yields, while improving environmental footprints through the reduction of carbon emissions and fuel use associated with traditional crop production and distribution. TerraSphere's unique, environmentally and socially-responsible business model helps to facilitate job creation and diverse, community-based workforces. TerraSphere believes its technology can potentially revolutionize access to organic produce for both remote and urban communities, alleviate land management issues for agricultural producers, and ease hunger crises for the world's growing population.
