Cannabis PowerScore in the spotlight at MJBizConNEXT

Join Resource Innovation Institute (RII) Executive Director Derek Smith in New Orleans on June 12-14, 2019 at MJBizConNEXT for an exclusive look into the future of efficient cultivation. RII brings together innovators and visionaries to establish best practices that maximize quality production while minimizing costs and environmental impact.

RII will be presenting the latest features of the Cannabis PowerScore – now you can benchmark your energy, water and waste performance!

MJBizConNEXT is the place for cannabis business executives, lead cultivators and extractors and innovators in the industry seeking a forward looking view into what’s NEXT in the cannabis industry. RII would like to thank MJBizConNEXT for this support via their Community Giveback Program!

Come visit RII at Booth #125 and learn more about the latest data trends in cannabis resource use!


Keep money in your pocket and build community at our Efficient Yields cultivation workshops

There’s nothing like RII’s Efficient Yields cultivation workshops. Led by growers, thick with technical content, priced to enable attendance by cultivators, production team members, owners/operators and design and construction partners.

Efficient Yields workshops feature leading cultivators and knowledgeable experts from the supply chain, yet are never pay-to-play and always provide commercial-free venues where everyone in the room can take part in dialogues that are shaping industry best practices.

Reach out if you’d like to attend or sponsor!
