Wow, time flies when you are having fun! Your Green Contractor has had a busy summer constructing several rewarding cannabis projects and attending some fantastic trade shows and educational events.
The excitement is now building for Illinois who will be accepting applications for medical marijuana business licenses in just three weeks. The initial program will allow 21 licenses and 60 dispensary licenses. Your Green Contractor will be in Chicago this week to share our knowledge and help build a greener America!
If you would like to meetup with us in the “Windy City”, please let us know.

The Chicago event will be a great follow up to the “How To…Denver” event we attended this past weekend. An educational day wrapped up with an uplifting performance from K.C. and the Canna Band. Fox 31 did a report on the event featuring the inspiring K.C.Stark, founder of the MMJ Business Academy and the Studio A64 Cannabis Social Club and Mr. Charles T. Houghton, attorney and educator.
Summer Project Update:
Healing House Pueblo Greenhouse Grow
YGC is making headway on this exciting 24,000 SF Nexus greenhouse in Pueblo. Completion is scheduled for October 2014.
Green Man Cannabis Hampden Dispensary
YGC is well underway with the construction of this new, high-end dispensary at 7289 E. Hampden Avenue. Green Man has been operating out of a temporary building in this location and looks forward to opening their new space next month. Check out the progress from the original building until today!
In addition to the Hampden dispensary, YGC is also building two grow facilities for Green Man so they can keep their dispensaries stocked with their award winning products.
Kind Love Grow
YGC is proud to be part of this 70,000 S.F. warehouse grow in Denver. This state-of-the-art growing facility features growing “pods” and a custom reverse osmosis system to recapture unused water and clean it for future use. The project is nearing completion.
YGC also provided tenant finish services for Kind Love’s MIP kitchen where they make their unique edibles for their medical patients. The kitchen includes equipment for extracting and commercial kitchen space for preparation of baked goods and candies.
Other fun facts:
In addition to the great projects featured above, YGC has many other grow facilities, greenhouses, testing labs and dispensaries in the works. Aside from projects in Colorado, YGC is gearing up to start projects in Illinois, Nevada, Florida, Massachusetts, Washington, Oregon and other states as new MJ laws are passed.
The cannabis industry continues to make history as it spreads throughout the United States and the rest of the world. The YGC team is excited to be a part of this phenomenon and looks forward to sharing our experience with other passionate individuals.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments. We are here to help!
