The mother of all mother rooms
“From seed to sale, we’re probably somewhere in the four to five month range, depending on how long we leave stuff in a curing state,” Maura Reilly told me as we toured the facility. Maura (aka Mo) is the NJ Director of Cultivation for Curaleaf.
As Mo took me through the main hallway, the combined funk of 11 flower rooms punched me in the nose. At any given time, these rooms can be home to 56,000 budding plants.
At the end of the long flower hall is the mother room, which houses one or two harvest per week. In the mom room, 40 or so of Curaleaf’s current and upcoming strains come to life. Some strains are out of production, but are being archived for future use.
