Our Story


 
 
 

We are operating during a time of amazing change for the medical marijuana industry, as regulators, legislators and medical professionals begin to adopt policies in Pennsylvania and across the country that consider the enormous health and wellness benefits of the plant.

In June 2017, Prime Wellness was one of the first 12 companies licensed to grow and process medical marijuana in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. From the start, we've made clear our commitment to advancing health and wellness and delivering the very best quality products to our dispensary partners across Pennsylvania. In December of that year, we secured a state permit to begin the grow process at our newly constructed 30,000 square-foot facility in Berks County's South Heidelberg Township. The facility is now home to the pesticide-free cultivation of hand-selected strains exclusively for Pennsylvania dispensaries.

Delivering quality products takes effort from every part of our organization. Prime Wellness of Pennsylvania is a trusted resource. In conjunction with our parent company, Acreage Holdings, we have deep access to industry-wide knowledge, national best practices, and expertise from within the business, food and beverage, and health care communities.

 

Our team members are pioneers in cultivation, responsible for creating many of the existing standards in other states for this new industry. Together, we are dedicated to providing Pennsylvania dispensaries and patients with a level of service that matches the quality of our product. 

We're part of a larger community, too - as local growers, we live and work in the same communities as our colleagues at dispensaries and patients. That's why we take the time to cultivate close relationships with local civic and business leaders, health providers, academic medical centers, and other organizations.

Pennsylvania's medical marijuana industry has given us an opportunity to hire locally, and to support  causes and programs within the community that we operate. We're not only changing lives, we're working with our neighbors to grow sound communities of the future.

From Seed-to-Sale

 

01.

Cultivation

Our 30,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art indoor cultivation facility is 100% pesticide-free. We develop all of our strains following an intensive indoor breeding and selection program with a special focus on providing therapeutic relief.      

02.

Extraction

Our plant material is harvested, lab tested and put in cold storage to await extraction. We utilize sub-critical and super-critical C02 extraction, with a labor intensive process focused on terpene extraction. Each product is mindfully crafted, focusing on the effects and medical benefits for the patient. All of our products are processed and packaged on site for distribution.  

03.

Distribution

Once cultivated and processed in our custom-designed indoor facility, our products are transported to dispensaries across Pennsylvania. Our facility is centrally located in Berks County, allowing for easy transport to dispensaries across the Commonwealth.

We're setting a new standard for cultivation. 

 

mindfully crafted products

Our product categorization is backed by the latest scientific research from some of the world's leading marijuana experts, such as Drs. Raphael Mechoulam and Ethan Russo, regarding the synergies of total cannabinoid and terpene content. For example, products labeled "Indica" are not based on using a mix of short plants with wide leaves, but rather, on laboratory results showing things such as dominant beta-myrcene levels and the presence (or lack thereof) of specific individual terpenes, or terpene combinations. 

Quality-Focused Cultivation and Processing Methods

Not all plant material is created equal. Fertilizer ingredients like silica will add biomass and weight to cannabis flowers but will ultimately degrade the oil, as it does not add any additional cannabinoid or terpene content. We cultivate our plants for the specific purpose of oil content and will not use fertilizers that add weight to the plant material in other forms.

 

pesticide-free facility

We operate a pesticide-free facility to ensure our products are free from toxins that may pose a threat to public health and the environment. Even organic pesticides can have residual presence in cannabinoid and terpene concentrates. Since many organic pesticides are made from essential oils that contain other terpenes, it is nearly impossible to separate cannabinoids and terpenes without contaminating the cannabis-derived terpenes and diluting the specific chemical profile of each strain or cultivar.

 

Hand-selected genetics

Our genetic library is based on almost a decade of breeding in large-scale environments. We have many exclusive varieties, including hand-sourced landrace strains and IBL lines from at least three continents. While we offer many popular and well-known strains, we also focus on rare and novel cultivars with continuous utilization of selective breeding for research and development.

 

 
 

Our combined passion and expertise in the medical marijuana industry allows us to provide the most effective medicine for patients.
