The Flora Farms cultivation facilities in Humansville shipped more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana Wednesday, the largest shipment day in the facilities’ three-year history.
Flora Farms President Mark Hendren said the roughly 1,200 pounds of product included marijuana flower, “popcorn” or small pieces of bud, and “trim” which are pieces saved for manufacturing.
The cultivation business about an hour north of Springfield began stockpiling product in November, when Missourians legalized recreational, adult-use marijuana.
“We’re running through it pretty fast,” Hendren said.
The Humansville facilities, which opened in 2020, grow between 60-70 different marijuana strains at once, Hendren said. The exact mix depends on what is popular with consumers — and what Flora Farms expects to be popular months down the road.
