GB Sciences | Our Mission
Water waste and risk of root rot are minimized by the GrowBLOX™ chamber’s patented AeroVAPOR™ system. In our intelligent, programmable system, nutrient-infused water enters the chamber and is trickled down over the base of the shoots. Excess water collects in the root compartment and is vaporized into an extremely fine fog that keeps roots optimally moist and fed while allowing them to breathe high levels of oxygen, which facilitates rapid growth.
Isolation and Protection
Lucas MarinDir. of Product Development
Dr. Helen Turner will be instrumental in developing preclinical trials of GB Sciences’ proprietary cannabinoid therapies and CME-accredited educational programs for physicians and GB Sciences’ dispensary staff members.

The Perfect Growing Environment
Watch this video to see how the GrowBLOXTM system helps overcome several challenges that conventional growers face. In most conventional cultivation operations, every time a person or object enters the facility, every plant is at risk of contamination, pest infestation, or disease. The GrowBLOXTM computer-regulated system optimizes the nutrients, water, temperature, and gas levels, which can cause undesirable variations in product quality and potency.
GrowBLOXTM overcomes these challenges by isolating the plants and regulating the environment for optimal and replicable growth conditions. The GrowBLOXTM software is designed so that each strain of cannabis will be grown under conditions to produce the same certified ratios of cannabinoids and terpenoids with every harvest

Biologist and Cultivation Manager
In the GrowBLOX™ cabinet, each plant is fed a customized blend of nutrients. We developed recipes that promote the maximum production of the desired cannabinoids and terpenes of each strain. The GrowBLOX™chamber delivers nutrients from a range of stock solutions through peristaltic pumps directly onto the exposed roots. The nutrients are recycled through our AeroVAPOR™ fogging system to ensure that they are taken up completely.
Throughout the grow cycle, the nutrient blends are continuously adjusted to the plant’s needs at each stage of development. This not only results in healthy and productive plants, but also minimizes nutrient and water consumption, eliminating wastewater discharge. All of our nutrient formulations are made from our mineral salts. This eliminates the risk of contamination from harmful substances such as the heavy metals found in many organic fertilizers.
