The store and fulfillment center, located at 15721 Ventura Blvd, Encino, CA 91436, has a long-standing hydroponics customer base as it was acquired through an asset purchase of intellectual property rights and lease transfer from GoGreen Hydroponics.

Earlier this yeah PHOT said it has filed a provisional patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) on a highly efficient and scalable vertical cultivation system. The Automated Indoor Cannabis Growing Facility is designed to produce high quality, consistent and cost-effective cannabis. According to the Company test results from a Proof-of-Concept (POC) study in Colorado with a licensed customer on its proprietary vertical grow room system prove the system can house four times as many plants as compared to traditional grow rooms with the same square footage. The system, which operates in only 64 square feet, is currently being tested with 70 full-size plants utilizing cubic volume versus horizontal square footing, which would traditionally only allow for the growing of up to 15-17 plants. PHOT said that there is a 76% reduction in per-plant kilowatt usage with GrowLife cubical vertical grow system as compared to a traditional grow room.
Growlife also finally got their filings in order this year which was a huge step forward for the Company which had always been a pesky pink. In March the Company said its stock has commenced trading on the OTCQB Market after successfully up-listing from the OTC Pink Market.
CEO Marco Hegyi said “Meeting the increased compliance and disclosure requirements of the OTCQB demonstrates GrowLife’s commitment to accountability and transparency, and provides our shareholders with even greater confidence in the information disclosed by the Company.”
