This topic keeps expanding and growing like a weed with each new state that passes a law or brings it to the table for discussion: medical marijuana. This has been a longstanding debate that is decades old.
However, states are finally starting to see the healing as well as monetary benefits of legalizing medical marijuana. With this sudden boom in the industry, there are going to be storage solutions needed.
This is where MSS can help the industry streamline their systems and improve productivity.
While this may be a controversial topic, it needs to be discussed. Medical marijuana is used most commonly for chronic pain for thousands of Americans.
The notion behind it is that it’s safer than many prescription painkillers including Opioids, which have recently become a killer epidemic in our country. Medical marijuana is made up of over 100 active components that can help alleviate patients’ symptoms without the use of chemicals.
The number one active ingredient used is called, CBD (Cannabidiol). This ingredient gives the patient the comfort of pain relief, but does not cause them any high.
The active ingredient that makes patients high is called THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD has little to no THC, and has been shown to relieve a number of chronic symptoms such as:
- Childhood Epilepsy
- Adult Epilepsy
- Nerve Pain
- Cancer (appetite and less chronic pain in body)
- Replaces Advil and Aleve (and is less harmful to the Liver)
- HIV/ AIDS
This list could go on and on with all of the chronic conditions that are currently being treated with over-the-counter prescription drugs and painkillers. In the United States, over 29 states have currently made medical marijuana legal on a state level. The drug is still criminalized on a federal level.
With a number of states continuing to talk about this subject, the farmers will need somewhere to grow their product. This is where Midwest Storage Solutions, Inc., can help!
While medical marijuana is not legal in Nebraska (yet), our friends in Iowa will be legalizing it in December, and North Dakota has legalized medical marijuana!

A great example of these storage units in work is with a Spacesaver Case Study done in California. The problem with their old storage units is the expense of renting a large warehouse.
Along with this, cannabis growers need the ability to control the temperature and humidity in the room at all times. This means a higher electricity bill.
The plants could not be squeezed together for risk of them molding and other developing issues, so the only option left was GROW storage.
Spacesaver GROW storage was able to keep the plants all spread out and in aisles to prevent any spills. They were able to put different strains and heights of plants on different levels of the storage unit.
Finally, the ergonomic handle allows the staff to open and close the aisles seamlessly. The results were spectacular!
