Adelanto’s Lifestyle Delivery Systems Uses Pure Genetics in Production of Cannastrips

As stated in an article in the Victorville Daily Press, March 10, 2019, from a window-filled room inside a nondescript warehouse, computers track thousands of plants through various stages of growth. Sensors monitor the air, water, the climate control system— every factor that affects the plants. The accumulated data is sent to a $500,000 data collection room with 100 terabytes of storage, where the information is stored for later use. “It’s tracking everything,” said Brad Eckenweiler, CEO of Lifestyle Delivery Systems Inc., a publicly traded Canadian technology company. The computerized tracking process is one example of the cutting-edge technology being implemented at Lifestyle Delivery Systems’ $8 million cannabis-production facility. The 20,000-square-foot building, which produces the cannabis breath strip brand CannaStrips, sits in Adelanto’s so-called “green zone,” an industrial stretch of town zoned for cannabis businesses. Production of CannaStrips is set to restart this week at the Adelanto facility, which has the capability of extracting 3,000 pounds of cannabis oil per month. Inside, employees clad in medical scrubs work in a laboratory where propane and ethanol are used to extract specific chemicals, called cannabinoids, from dried cannabis. Other employees then remove impurities using a $250,000 piece of hardware from Germany before the substance is processed into marijuana-infused breath strips. The same machine used to produce Listerine Breath Strips can produce about 400,000 CannaStrips every 8-hour shift, Eckenweiler said, or about 4 miles worth. Plans call for as many as 50 full-time workers to be employed at the CannaStrips facility.
