Center of Excellence
iaso operates a Center of Excellence to harness and showcase innovations that achieve best practices in medical cannabis products, applications, and technologies
Welcome to the new epicenter of advancement in the science of cannabis. The iaso Center of Excellence is a 12,000 square foot facility located in San Juan, Puerto Rico that includes a state-of-the- art aeroponic cultivation facility, multi-faceted laboratories for extraction and research, and a medical dispensary featuring products grown and produced inside the Center of Excellence. This is the first full vertical integration of the cannabis ecosystem contained within one building.
The Possibilities Are Endless
The iaso Center of Excellence creates a unique opportunity to harness and showcase bleeding-edge innovations to achieve best practices in medical cannabis products, applications, and technologies. With the entire cannabis ecosystem housed within one facility, iaso can leverage efficiencies and study the cannabis plant at greater depths throughout its lifecycle. The Center of Excellence is a hub for advancement in cannabis cultivation and research and will produce countless breakthroughs as time moves forward.
Shared Knowledge = Exponential Gains
The Center of Excellence facilitates a seamless share of information between key members of the cannabis ecosystem including expert growers, Ph.D. chemists and laboratory technicians. As members of iaso working toward a common cause, the different facets within the Center of Excellence advance understandings of the cannabis plant at unprecedented levels.
The 12,000 square foot Center of Excellence facility includes:
- Fully equipped tissue culture and cloning laboratory
- 1,000 square foot medical dispensary
- 7,500 square foot indoor aeroponic growing facility capable of producing 9,600 plants/year
- 2,500 square foot production facility that utilizes both Supercritical CO2 and Hydrodynamic Extraction systems
iaso has obtained permits to expand the Center of Excellence and operations on land that is immediately adjacent to the current building. This will allow iaso to increase the Center of Excellence dispensary, cultivation, and production operations by more than 25,000 square feet, resulting in a 38,000 square foot facility upon completion. iaso has also obtained dispensary permits for two additional locations in Puerto Rico, which will open later in 2018.
