BOULDER, Colorado, November 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Surna Inc. (OTCQB: SRNA), a technology company that engineers equipment for controlled environment agriculture (CEA) with special expertise in cannabis cultivation, is excited to welcome eight states to this growing industry. The results of the ballot measures for medicinal and recreational cannabis represent a massive expansion of the cannabis market, creating the need for cultivation technologies to help the industry run efficiently and responsibly. With each state having its own unique climate, growing environment and regulations, Surna's expertise in cultivation technology will be key for developing tailored solutions that will fit the needs of each state market. "With the passage of legal cannabis in California, Nevada, Maine and Massachusetts for adult recreational use and four other states, Arkansas, Florida, Montana and North Dakota legalizing for medical use, Surna is looking forward to providing these new cultivators with the equipment they'll need for a reliable and sustainable crop yield," said Surna CEO Trent Doucet. "Our experience in providing best-in-class agricultural solutions puts us in a prime position in many of the new markets that are coming above ground." Once legalization is approved, it is common to see a year and a half to two years before the first licenses are issued while the state implements its rules and regulations. During this transitional phase, Surna will continue augmenting its production and engineering capabilities, while investing in new technologies to further support this rapidly expanding industry. Surna is looking forward to the growth these new states will bring. About Surna Surna Inc.
