Advesa Wellness Inc., based in Oakland, California, is proposing to open a manufacturing facility at 1375 Main St. in Millis to produce its environmentally-friendly and chemical-free products manufactured without the the use of water, gases, solvents, flavor addictives or fillers.
MILLIS — A California-based marijuana manufacturer is looking at opening in Millis to produce environmentally-friendly and clean products with THC.
A community outreach meeting via Zoom was held for Advesa Wellness Inc. on Wednesday night, which is seeking approval for a host community agreement and zoning approval through town officials to open within the industrial zone of Millis. The corporation, founded by Tony Verzura and co-founded by his wife Jessica, boasts a management team with a combined 35 years of experience in the marijuana industry. The team currently also has a marijuana dispensary proposal in Cambridge.
Based out of Oakland, California, the manufacturer is proposing to move into an unused, 5,000-square-foot space at 1375 Main St. in Millis. The rest of the building — nearly 45,000-square feet — is occupied by Collt Manufacturing, though the two will be separated, said Jessica Verzura.
The site is about a minute away from the town’s first and only marijuana dispensary, owned by CommCan.

Advesa Wellness products are created by Tony Verzura, a cannabis inventor with 20 years of experience and the winner of over 80 awards to back up his plant-based, chemical-free products and mechanical extraction methods — all while having no impact on the environment, he said.
Verzura said he’s been developing his own extraction methods for the last 20 years, and that his products, which include THC and CBD capsules, topicals and liquid drops, differ from most other manufactures in that they’re mechanically created without the the use of water, gases, solvents, flavor addictives or fillers.
