LOS ANGELES, Feb. 24, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, INC. (OTCPink:PNPL) (the “Company”), a publicly-traded company that offers cannabis industry consulting, technology, investments, turn-key property rentals, and branding concepts to businesses in the legal cannabis industry, issued a photo release regarding its City of Desert Hot Springs CA (“DHS”) 8.82 acre cultivation complex project, called “Pineapple Park.” The release contains a rendering of what the complex will resemble as well as a schematic site plan. The Company also discussed that its project already has electrical power and utility service to the main parcel, a key advantage over some other projects in the area.

“Our 'Pineapple Park' project is slated to have over 150,000 square feet of rentable warehouse space and 50,000 square feet of rentable greenhouse space,” stated Matthew Feinstein, CEO and Chairman at Pineapple Express. “We are also pursuing solar power and windmills to mitigate and reduce power usage and cost for our future tenants. Pineapple Express plans to provide all our future tenants with an onsite cannabis testing laboratory to ensure the cultivated products are free of contaminants and of the highest quality. The testing laboratory will be yet another revenue source for us besides rent being collected from Pineapple Park tenants.”
Company executives also expressed positive sentiments about their own project in DHS in light of the lack of electrical power to a large portion of the designated areas where cultivation is allowed within the city. On February 11th 2016, Company representatives attended a workshop hosted by the City of Desert Hot Springs and Southern California Edison addressing the power issues that many cultivation projects face in DHS. At the meeting it was discovered that a significant number of projects would likely not have utility services for another few years.
Mr. Feinstein added, “We are obviously quite enthusiastic that many other cultivation projects in DHS will likely be tied up for years based on information we discovered at the city’s workshop. Our project will fortunately not be delayed due to the power crunch and as a result, we are offering some of our greenhouse and warehouse space rentals to these stalled projects in order to lend a helping hand in the interim. We feel it is the right thing to do since it came as quite a surprise to many at that meeting that utility services would take that long to develop in the area.”
