Green & Gold Supply Co., a Cannabis Growing Facility, Now Open in North Las Vegas





Green & Gold Supply Co., a brand-new cannabis cultivation facility, has begun operations in North Las Vegas. The company incorporates the most advanced indoor growing equipment available and will bring 12-15 unique strains to the Nevada market.

Using hydroponic growing methods with state-of-the-art mechanical and electrical systems, Green & Gold Supply Co. will deliver the highest quality product to medical patients. Its proprietary branded cannabis products will be sold in dispensaries throughout Nevada.

Strains will be brought to market from the best genetics in the world and will be unveiled beginning in the first quarter of 2017. Green & Gold Supply Co. measures in at more than 15,000 square feet and was designed to be more efficient than other growing facilities by its ability to produce 21 percent more cannabis than a typical facility of its size.

“We want to bring the highest quality cannabis to market in Nevada, and operating our own growing facility is the best way to do that,” explained Britten. “A tremendous amount of tradition and science, as well as respect for proven natural remedies, has informed our operations to date. We remain committed to these standards as we work toward propelling the cannabis industry forward in Nevada and beyond.”

Britten relocated his family to Las Vegas two years ago from Colorado, where for more than 6 years he was a leader in developing that state’s medical marijuana industry. There, he served as director of operations for the nation’s largest producer, retailer and employer in both the medical and recreational marijuana industry. For his Nevada enterprises, Britten partnered with long-time Nevadans: Ed Findlay, Julie Murray, chief executive officer/principal, Moonridge Group; and Phillip Peckman, CEO, Peckman Capital, all of whom have years of outstanding business and community service throughout the valley.

Nevada currently honors medical marijuana cards issued by Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington, the District of Columbia, and the Ely Shoshone Tribe.

Small bites were offered, including Caprese skewers, filet mignon sliders, mini chicken wellington and an assortment of dessert, a hosted bar and music by local turntable master DJ 88 (Bree Cohen).  In addition, guests engaged in the live auction, which featured notable items such as a private in-residence barbeque for up to 12 guests with Chef Kim Canteenwalla of Society Cafe at Encore Las Vegas; Lake Tahoe five-day retreat at a beautiful private home in Glenbrook, Calif.; intimately prepared dinner for 12 by James Beard Winner, Paul Bartolotta of Bartolotta Restaurant in Wynn Las Vegas; and David Yurman Chiclet necklace and matching earrings.  Each guest was offered a take-home “doggy bag” complete with home-made vegan dog treats, courtesy of Pound Hound Bakery.

About Noah’s Animal House

Every 15 seconds, a woman is battered by her partner in the United States.  Many battered women lack the financial resources and emotional support to flee their abuser.  Often, the inability to leave is expanded to include family members; especially those sometimes forgotten – the family pet.  In a national survey, 85% of women seeking safety in a domestic violence shelter reported pet abuse in their home.  Las Vegas was one of the first cities in the United States to address the important barrier facing victims of domestic violence.  Noah’s Animal House was built on the grounds of The Shade Tree shelter in 2007 to provide safety, shelter and support for the pets of the clients of The Shade Tree.  In addition, foster parents are available for special pets that require more living space and veterinary services are on hand at all times.
