Commitment to mother earth

From day one, Galenas’ leadership team has been committed to preserving Earth and Her resources, minimizing our footprint, and mitigating our impact on the environment. These core values helped us set standards of cultivation and production that elevate us above other Midwestern medical cannabis cultivators. Ultimately, our dedication to these efforts resulted in state-of-the-art facilities and industry-leading methods.

Building design

First and foremost, Galenas facilities were designed with a holistic approach.  Through the utilization of clean transition spaces, hermetically sealed doors and other cutting edge technologies, our facilities have achieved laboratory-grade status while placing top priority on efficiency. 

Living Soil

Compost-Based Growing Medium

At Galenas, we have chosen to grow in an organic, living soil medium. We believe that this substrate is more beneficial to our plants, in turn making it healthier for patients. Living soil, as opposed to run-of-the-mill potting soil, is often thought of as planting material that centers on compost and has an active microbiology and biodiversity, which can include worms and their castings, protozoa, healthy bacteria, amoebas, kelp extracts, and other ingredients to create a truly living biome underneath the plant.

As a result, growers using living soil often report larger yields and better cannabinoid and terpene profiles. At Galenas, our philosophy is that what’s good for the plants is good for our customers.

water reclamation

Fresh water consumption is a massive challenge facing the cultivation industry as a whole. To combat this issue, we have implemented a highly advanced condensation reclamation system. This system allows us to reuse water from the environment and limit our water consumption.

LED grow lights

Energy efficiency is another high priority for the Galenas team.  In the interest of conserving energy consumption, Galenas deployed the use of top-of-line LED horticultural lamps capable of producing premium medicine at a much lower cost to Mother Earth. 

Environmental Controls

Finally, Galenas implemented one of the most sophisticated environmental control systems into our facilities. This system allows us to control and manipulate nearly all aspects of the environment in which the crops grow, providing the opportunity to conserve energy whenever possible.
