Rural New Mexico will soon be the home to one of the nation’s largest cannabis manufacturing and research facilities, – a $300 million investment in a state-of-the-art agricultural ecosystem on company-owned property in Grants, New Mexico, embracing the latest technology and automation, delivering consistency and purity to the production of high-quality cannabis for the advancement of medical research. The project is expected to create more than 170 construction jobs and an initial 200 research and agricultural jobs. “I couldn’t be more excited about the development of another world-class research facility right here in New Mexico,” said Gov. Lujan Grisham. “With the cooperative spirit of Federal, State, and business we found in New Mexico, we will see New Mexico and Bright Green Corporation become leaders in this emerging field of medical research,” said Lynn Stockwell.
