Innovation in CannaTech Farming
Bootleg Avocado Presents...Innovation in CannaTech Farming.

Cannabis is attracting a lot of attention these days, especially in North America. Whether it’s for recreational or medicinal purposes, the industry is expected to grow significantly in the coming years. With legalization on the horizon and more markets opening, many farmers have turned to cannabis agriculture technology in order to remain competitive. Cannabis cultivators (growers) are using technologies that have been developed for other industries such as hydroponics, food production, and digital agriculture. With new breakthroughs in automation, artificial intelligence, robotics, and sensors, cannabis growing technology is set to take the next generation of growers to the next level.

Special thanks our friends at Fox Rothschild LLP, Mattio Communications, and our panelists:

- Matthew Kittay, Partner, Fox Rothschild
- Josh Malman, VP Cultivation, Jushi Holdings
- David Kessler, Chief Science Officer, Agrify
- Socrates Rosenfeld, Co-founder & CEO, Jane Technologies

About: Josh Malman, VP Cultivation, Jushi Holdings - As a student, Malman studied international horticulture, and even spent a semester abroad building systems to provide cheap water to local farms in Africa. His focus on greenhouse production horticulture eventually led him to a position with The Clinic in Colorado as it was starting up in 2009. When he first started with The Clinic, his first harvest was around 50 pounds. Over the course of 10 years, he helped grow the business into three cultivation facilities and six retail stores in Colorado. In 2019, Jushi Holdings bought the consulting arm of The Clinic, and Malman’s expertise was an important part of the purchase. Two years ago, Jushi didn't have much of a cultivation footprint, but through acquisition, it now operates facilities in Nevada, Virginia and Pennsylvania — and each is undergoing expansion projects in 2021.
