Research and Development
The Canna Agency (TCA) intends to build the world's first empirical data base providing functional cross comparison evaluations to various agricultural programs, equipment manufacturer's and nutrient products in order to provide the expanding hemp/cannabis market with rational efficacy ratings. We believe as businesses ramp up to to meet increasing demand in the market they will need unbiased efficacy ratings on equipment, lighting, nutrients and resource conscious cultivation techniques in order to navigate their expansion with confidence.
TCA is contracted by multiple equipment and lighting companies, nutrient companies and product manufacturers; to run continuous real world comparison testing on their products.
TCA embraces the opportunity to evolve its operations into a world class cannabis R&D Facility. The facility will double as TCA's corporate headquarters so that existing and potential clients may experience state of the art cultivation, industrial processing and laboratory experimentation first hand.
The R&D chambers are completely bio secure and the environment completely controlled. This allows for true comparisons with multiple variable inputs. To date, TCA or its' clients are not aware of any similar facilities within the State of California. TCA firmly believes that this portion of its business will see exponential growth as more and more traditional agricultural firms seek entrance into the industry.
TCA's cultivation/testing facility, once fully operational, will generate six harvests per year, utilizing individual plant production units to autonomously collect controlled data. TCA's historical margins, based on experience and proprietary techniques average near 70% .
TCA's extraction laboratory will comprise of experimental extraction processes which concentrate and refine cannabinoids from whole plant biomass for use in research & development of product formulations to be used in strategy consultations with TCA clients. TCA's margins, based on discounted industry norms, average near 87% .
