Cannabis company, Tropizen, operational after Puerto Rico earthquakes

Canóvanas, Puerto Rico – Tropizen, a leading licensed cultivator and manufacturer of medical cannabis products based in Puerto Rico, announced that it is fully operational and its facilities remain unaffected after the recent earthquakes that occurred in the southwestern region of the island. 

“Our manufacturing and cultivation facilities are operating normally and our buildings are free from structural damage following the earthquakes.  In addition, our cannabis crops and product inventory are unaffected,” said Tropizen co-founder Marni Meistrell. “We continue to serve dispensaries to supply them with much needed medicinal cannabis in this time of need.”

Production output of Tropizen signature products such as cannabis infused Tropizen Superfruit Gummies™ and Tropizen Pique™ were unaffected, despite a power outage that lasted several days, as a result of preparatory measures undertaken by the company. Backup generators supplying 300KW of electricity and mobile Internet hotspots permitted production to continue. According to Meistrell, management and line employees strictly adhered to staff procedures, facilitating a successful emergency response.

“Tropizen has been strengthened by its exposure to the natural events of the past two and a half years. First with Hurricanes Maria and Irma and now with the earthquakes, we have been able to prepare with equipment and internal protocols to minimize operational interruptions,” said Meistrell.

As part of its established emergency protocols, the company’s facilities were promptly inspected, to ensure the safety of all employees.  Moreover, the management team remains on alert and is ready to act quickly should the need arise to do so.

In fact, Tropizen is already taking steps to further improve on its emergency infrastructure, said Meistrell.  Later this year a 7,500 gallon water tank will be installed on the premises of the Canóvanas manufacturing and cultivation facilities. Moreover, the company plans to install state of the art solar panels on the roof of the building in order to further decrease dependency from the power grid.

“We wish to express our solidarity to the residents of the municipalities affected by the recent earthquakes as we continue to support the efforts to provide disaster relief to those in need,” said Mestrell.
